Get ready for the ride of your life in this high-speed buddy comedy fuelled by huge laughs and non-stop action! When a mild-mannered 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, Stu is thrust into a harrowing ordeal in which he desperately tries to hold onto his wits, his life and his five-star rating.
Kumail Nanjiani was so good in The Big Sick I thought this would also showcase his comic talents, I was clearly mistaken. The script is almost non-existent and swearing & shouting does not substitute actual funny lines. Dave Bautista struggles with a dislikeable character and clearly Karen Gillan agreed to appear as a favour to her Guardians co-star.
