    When a mild-mannered Uber driver named Stu (Kumail Nanjiani) picks up a passenger (Dave Bautista) who turns out to be a cop hot on the trail of a brutal killer, he’s thrust into a harrowing ordeal where he desperately tries to hold onto his wits, his life and his five-star rating. Directed by Michael Dowse, this action-comedy from 20th Century Fox also stars Iko Uwais, Natalie Morales, Betty Gilpin, Jimmy Tatro, Mira Sorvino and Karen Gillan.

    Does the name Kevin mean anything to you? Prestigious

    I want to see it based off of the name alone

    Oh shit, I totally forgot Dowse directed this. The trailer is alright, great cast though.

    catching this in a few hours. I'd be seeing detective pikachu if i didn't miss out on a pass for that so i'm gonna try not to hold that against this movie

    This looks pretty funny, and what a great title.

    This was fun. Nothing groundbreaking but definitely a good time.

    Agreed, it was pretty good. Would've liked some more connective tissue for everything. Kumail reacting to all the crazy shit going on is like a third of the movie's appeal

    Oh, and the theater gave all the attendees a coupon for a free popcorn so that was nice. Well, at least until we all had to get in line for it and I was minutes away from nearly missing the start of the film

    At our screening they just set boxes of popcorn in the entrance of the theater so you could grab it, it was a nice surprise.

    Nuke the site from orbit. The only way to be sure Prestigious

    This was really good. Action was really well done and there's some great one liners

    Thought this was fine. Unless you’re on A-List, there’s no reason to rush out to the theater to see it. Clocks in at just about 90 minutes and probably would have been even shorter if they cut out a romantic subplot that went nowhere. Bautista and Kumail are fun to see interacting though.

    I think you can wait a little bit. It's completely decent

    Saw this last night. Very average film with a lot of wasted talent. Mira Sorvino chose this as her “comeback” role?

    I haven't seen this, but Michael Dowse has made some absolute gold. Regardless if you like this or not, HIGHLY recommend watching Goon and FUBAR (both movies, and what I've seen of the series is also very good. Wish I could find a legit place to watch the whole thing)

    Pretty happy I saw this movie BEFORE seeing this tweet

    Always do the right thing. Prestigious

    The Kumail/Batista fight scene at the sporting goods store made me laugh a lot. The script wasn’t a knockout but Kumail can carry a movie well, I had a good time at the movies tonight

    This wasn't that good, found myself looking at my watch a few times wondering when it was going to be over. As mentioned above, wasted talent on this one.
