What to know

critics consensus

Though it makes a strong case for future collaborations between Kumail Nanjiani and Dave Bautista, Stuber fails to mesh its contrasting genres, settling for an overtly violent, mildly entertaining diversion that's far from a five-star ride. Read critic reviews

    Weirdly long ad. Started out... Not good, but, promising, maybe? Got worse the further it went, and was basically garbage by the closing moments.

    Stuber mightn't have been the greatest film of 2019, but it was different and offered good chemistry. The leads are likable and talented to the concept. What didn't work was the story twists and turns, plus the villain was a no show. They provide the reasoning for hating him early on, but apart from that he is a cardboard cut out of a villain. The film didn't deserve the subpar turn out, and should have been a minor hit, 2019 was not the best box office. I enjoyed the film and rated it slightly above the standard par mark. It could've of been better, but it is okay for what we have. 20/10/2019

    Besides the salvageable chemistry between Nanjiani & Bautista, Stuber ultimately screeches to a halt with its dull story and uneven balance of violence and comedy. The film's second half is arguably more of an improvement but not enough to make it serviceable as a whole. 2.53/5

    ollows the exploits of Stu (Kumail Nanjiani) as a passive, awkward, insecure retail employee and Uber driver and his newest fare, Vic (Dave Bautista), an aggressive police officer who just had Lasik eye surgery. The opposites-attract setup is a comedy staple and Nanjiani (The Big Sick) and Bautista (Guardians of the Galaxy) are well chosen for their roles. The problem with the movie is that only one of them gets to do or say anything funny. Nanjiani is entrusted with all the film's humor, relegated to his riffing while under duress or sardonic detachment. I laughed here and there but Stuber is missing inspired set pieces and larger payoffs. Too many of the jokes seem obvious or lazy. There's one genuine gut-busting gag involving a can of propane in a high-speed chase, but this seems like the only application of tweaking action movie cliches. There are some disposable storylines about finding a mole in the police department, tracking down a Very Bad Guy (one of The Raid actors, curiously kept from doing martial arts after the opening segment), Stu telling his unrequited love how he feels, and Vic making it on time to appear to his adult daughter's art gallery show. It doesn't matter. What matters is the enjoyable oil-water chemistry between the two male leads. The majority of the jokes occur just from their frantic interactions, enough so that I wish the exterior storylines had been shaved away. The film's tone is too uneven, and when in doubt it falls upon action beats over comedy beats, and some times the violence is just a bit too harsh for the material. It can kill the good vibes quickly. This is more Pineapple Express to me than 21 Jump Street, and while I don't regret having watched Stuber, it's a movie that is hardly deserving of a five-star rating. Three stars, at best. Nate's Grade: C+
