7. Central Intelligence

Original Release Date: June 17, 2016

Box Office Earnings: $35,535,250 (opening weekend), $127,440,871 (USA gross)

Critical Acclaim: While not nominated for major awards, Dwayne Johnson and Kevin Hart won the Kid’s Choice Awards for Best Friends Forever. Hart also tipped his co-star to be named Choice Summer Movie Star: Male at the Teen Choice Awards. The movie was nominated for eight other awards.

About the Role: Bob Stone/Robbie Weirdicht is the character you’re looking out for in this buddy cop comedy. He’s a former CIA agent and high school friend of Kevin Hart’s Calvin Joyner.

When Bob finds himself wanted by the CIA, he turns to the only high school friend he had and searched for help. That leads to the action comedy, as it turns out Bob also has information of a terrorist organization plot.

Simply the Best: The movie itself isn’t that unique, but it’s funny and entertaining. Plus, Dwayne Johnson and Kevin Hart on screen together was an excellent decision. These two have chemistry that makes every element of Central Intelligence work.

You’ll find it predictable, but sometimes that’s the joy of these movies. You can just watch for the comedy and the stars on the screen. This plays the predictability off well, adding a feel-good element at the very end.
