Dwayne Johnson and Kevin Hart star in director Rawson Marshall Thurber’s comedy action-adventure as former school buddies who team up to thwart a terrorist plot. Bob Stone (Johnson), who was humiliated at high school for being overweight and nerdy, has subsequently transformed himself into a muscle-bound hunk and now works for the CIA. Meanwhile, his childhood friend and protector Calvin Joyner (Hart) became a forensic accountant. The pair reunite when Robbie asks for Calvin’s help deciphering financial records that he hopes will enable him to locate the Black Badger – an elusive criminal mastermind who’s planning to auction encryption codes for a satellite intelligence network. But when Calvin is visited by other CIA agents, he’s told a very different story. Who should he trust: these unknown agents or his old schoolmate?
