Stuber Movie Review
Dave Bautista and Kumail Nanjiini star in a new action comedy called Stuber. Stuber is about an Uber driver who is trying to make some extra money to help finance his crush’s spin gym and a cop who can’t see very well called Vic (played by Bautista). Why Vic is trying to solve a crime, he takes over Stu’s Uber services and gets him involved in a high profile case. There are tons of laugh out loud moments and I often found myself covering my face because it was quite gooey and gross at times.
This is not a family movie, but definitely worth a trip to the theater to see it. I call these movies popcorn movies! You won’t regret seeing the movie at the theater. You will laugh a lot and find yourself on edge either for the next pop up crime or the next hilarious joke.
The chemistry between Vic and Stu is great. Where their relationship is predictable and the story is what you would expect, it doesn’t take away from the hour and a half entertainment of a funny film. There are lots of jokes made toward Vic about not really understanding how Uber works. There are also a lot of jokes make toward the Stu who is really focussing on trying to earn his 5 star rating.
Don’t base this movie on any Uber drive you ever taken. It isn’t realistic and I can’t see a copy kidnapping an Uber driver to help him fight crime.
Stu (Kumail Nanjiani) is a chatty, mild-mannered, risk-averse Millennial who works in a sporting goods store while moonlighting as an Uber driver trying to make enough money to finance a spin gym business to get with the girl of his dreams — a plan that’s about as likely to work as it sounds. He will do anything to save his five-star driver’s rating.
Vic Manning (Dave Bautista) is a middle aged, old school, alpha detective. He’s divorced from his wife, married to his job, and neglectful of his parental duties to his grownup artist daughter, Nicole. Years of using his hulking body as a battering ram have taken its toll, but Vic still pushes it to the limit. Allergic to both conversation and technology, Vic is quick to get angry and quick to pull the trigger — a combo that everyone loves in a cop!
One day, leaving his eye doctor’s office after having Lasik surgery, Vic receives a tip on the whereabouts of the drug dealer who murdered his partner, his Great White Whale. Unfortunately, Vic wouldn’t be able to spot a whale if it was right in front of him. Even a white one. Eyes blurry and unable to drive himself, Vic calls for an Uber, and guess who answers. Can these two very different men share a Nissan Leaf while hunting drug dealers across Los Angeles? It’s like The Odd Couple but with more explosions.
