CENTRAL INTELLIGENCE (2016) 4 Stars (out of 5)
CENRAL INTELLIGENCE is the film I most enjoyed this week and has my strong recommendation. It is really funny. Laugh out loud funny. Applause in the middle of the movie funny. It is a buddy-cop movie about a ripped C.I.A. officer, Bob — who is haunted by his nerdy high school days; and an accountant, Calvin — who was the most worshipped superstar-who-did-everything in this high school. That sets the stage for their 20-year high school reunion. Needless to say, Dwayne Johnson and Kevin Hart are just terrific together. I do not want to say anything about the plot. That will spoil the fun.
The critics are going to chew up this movie. Not me. But then again the critics chewed up WARCRAFT. Not me. I gave the film 4.5 Stars.
News 3 calls me “The People’s Critic”. My positive reviews last week were upheld by CinemaScore this week — voted by the public!
