Rating: PG-13

Synopsis: Calvin Joyner was voted Most Likely To Succeed, but twenty years later, he’s an accountant in a mundane job. Worried about how people will perceive him at his upcoming high school reunion, he connects with an old classmate Robbie Weirdicht who goes by the name Bob Stone now. Calvin agrees to meet him and is surprised by how much Robbie/
Bob has changed. They become friends but Bob has a dangerous secret; he’s in trouble with the CIA and Calvin is torn between doing right by his new friend, or doing what’s right for the CIA.


Review: I love Dwayne Johnson movies. He and Vin Diesel are my guilty pleasures.

Central Intelligence is a nice bit of foolery with some truly funny moments. It’s one of those movies that probably won’t be remembered for anything special – except maybe the ending at the school dance. It was more entertaining than I thought it would be, which was a surprise in itself. I kept waiting for Mr. Johnson’s character to become ‘ungoofy’, but I guess that is the way the character is meant to be.
Over all, a nice flick for a Saturday afternoon.

4 out of 5.
