STUBER MOVIE REVIEW
The mismatched buddy action comedy is back! Wait, did it ever leave? Regardless, that 80s vibe is in full swing in Stuber. Dave Bautista plays an all-business cop tracking the guy (Iko Uwais) who killed his partner. And he gets that solid lead RIGHT after he happens to have gotten LASIK eye surgery. So, for all extents and purposes, he’s blind (insert continuous rim-shot here). Calling an Uber, he forces his driver, the always likable Kumail Nanjiani, to keep driving him from place to place and be his eyes in his quest to catch the killer. Which, Kumail is none too thrilled about, but what are ya gonna do? We had more than a few questions about the viability of this plot and some wildly mixed reactions. Listen to Marco, Ben, and Chris discuss.
