Short Review: 100 Words or Less (no spoilers)
Holy crap, The Rock is funny! Like, seriously funny. This movie has a ton of laugh-out-loud moments, and Kevin Hart and Dwayne Johnson have incredible comedic chemistry. Not only are Hart and Johnson both great in this film, many of the supporting cast really shine as well: Amy Ryan, Danielle Nicolet, Ryan Hansen and Aaron Paul, specifically. The script is funny from beginning to end, and underneath all of the laughs there is a moving story about overcoming bullies and the strength of friendship. I think this one is worth watching multiple times – and I have.
Final Grade: B+
