Comedy/Action: An accountant finds his life turned upside down when his former high school classmate gets him involved in a dangerous CIA case.
Twenty years ago, Calvin Joyner (KEVIN HART) was the most popular senior in his high school, with a pretty girlfriend, Maggie (DANIELLE NICOLET), and the adoration of teachers and classmates alike. Voted most likely to succeed, he even had a soft spot for obese and unpopular classmate Robbie Weirdicht (DWAYNE JOHNSON). That young man ended up publically humiliated when school bully Trevor (DYLAN BOYACK) and his buddies took Robbie from the locker shower and slid him out onto the gym floor, buck naked in front of everyone. To help him out, Calvin gave him his letterman jacket to cover himself up, but never heard from him again.

In the present, Calvin feels he's never lived up to his once-promising potential and works as an accountant where his former assistant has been promoted ahead of him. Maggie is looking forward to attending their high school reunion, but Calvin doesn't want to go, viewing himself as a failure. And then out of the blue, he gets a Facebook friend request from someone named Bob Stone, who then reveals he's actually Robbie. When the two meet, Calvin is shocked to see the physical transformation as Robbie/Bud is now an imposing, muscular guy, still as nerdy as ever but able to dispatch some adult bullies with ease.

Knowing Calvin is an accountant, Bud asks for his help with an online financial account, and Calvin is shocked by the numbers showing up on his screen. But he's even more shocked the following morning when steely FBI agent Pamela Harris (AMY RYAN) and her two armed assistants arrive and tell him that Bud is now a rogue agent wanted for treason and the murder of his former partner, Phil (AARON PAUL). Calvin can't believe that and tries telling Pamela that they're not close friends. But the accountant then finds his life turned upside down as Bud keeps pulling him further into the case involving spy satellites, bad guys and such. From that point on, Calvin tries to figure out who to believe as things progressively get hairier.

If they're fans of Hart, Johnson, or anyone else in the cast, or action-comedy based "buddy movies," they might be interested.
For crude and suggestive humor, some nudity, action violence and brief strong language.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.
