Central Intelligence starts off with Bob Stone (Dwayne Johnson) and Calvin Joyner (Kevin Hart) while they are high school seniors. Calvin is the star of the school that everyone loves, and Bob is the laughing stock of the school with all the students making fun of him. So it's not tough to discover that, some years later, the roles are some what reversed. Coming up on a high school reunion, Bob messages Calvin randomly to meet up for drinks, and this is where the movie starts. Bob is a big, muscular guy who turns out to be working for the CIA, and Calvin works in an office day to day with no real excitement in his life. After a night of drinking, Bob crashes on Calvin's couch. Come morning, the CIA is at his front door trying to find Calvin, for her is on the run from them, and this is where the movie really begins. Bob tells Calvin that his is not a bad guy (even though his CIA co--workers all believe so) and convinces Calvin to help him save the world.
There were some funny parts in this movie, Kevin Hart being his typical self, and Dwayne Johnson playing to kid that was obviously traumatized in high school but still has the same interests many years later. It's fun for the viewer to guess whether some is good or bad, and how the story will unfold. This one was good in that sense. You didn't know whether Bob was a good agent or bad agent, you
Overall, this movie wasn't terrible. There's enough places that will make the viewer laugh, and enough holes in the story-line that will make you keep guessing as the movie progresses. Other than that, there is not much more about the movie. I did like the surprise(?) appearance by Melissa McCarthy and how it all ended with them back in the high school (at reunion) where Bob can redeem himself after the tragedy we saw in the beginning of the movie.
I'm giving this movie an "okay" rating. I wouldn't watch it again, but it's not a bad one if you're looking for something to make you giggle a little.
