Action/Comedy: A mild-mannered Uber driver ends up at his wits' ends when he's essentially car-jacked by a cop who's trying to catch a dangerous criminal but is temporarily visually impaired.
Stu (KUMAIL NANJIANI) is a mild-mannered guy who works two jobs in Los Angeles -- one in a big box sports store where his boss is Richie (JIMMY TATRO), the second as an Uber driver. He's also investing in a spin cycle gym run by his friend, Becca (BETTY GILPIN), who he slept with once and for whom he has confusing and unresolved romantic feelings.

While hoping to get to her place to let her know how he feels, he ends up intercepted and essentially car-jacked by Vic (DAVE BAUTISTA), a cop with the L.A.P.D. who's just had LASIK surgery and thus can't see well enough to drive on his own. That comes to a head when he gets a call that an informant he's been dealing with -- in hopes of nabbing a criminal by the name of Teijo (IKO UWAIS) -- is in danger.

After driving Vic to that location, Stu thinks he's done and can be on his way, but Vic informs him that's not the case as he wants to avenge his late partner's death, even if that means he'll likely miss an art gallery show put on by his estranged adult daughter, Nicole (NATALIE MORALES). With Vic determined to catch the criminal, Stu ends up in situations that he'd really rather not be in.

Those who are fans of anyone in the cast or mismatched "buddy movies" might show some interest.
For violence and language throughout, some sexual references and brief graphic nudity.

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.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
