One-line Reviews (202)

Even my wife, who isn't into this kind of movie, enjoyed it.

Typical 'watch it in a Friday evening, fall asleep during and forget it by tomorrow' movie.

Batista cannot carry a film, the plot was pointless, and majority of the laughs were in the trailer.

It's enjoyable.

So entertaining .

Dave Bautista and Kumail Nanjiani make an unlikely, but entertaining duo.

In the end I found it entertaining and funny and I liked both main characters.

I thought this was a very entertaining and funny movie, and that's all it has to be for a movie like this.

Entire film full of intense, funny and bloody violence fighting scene!

Not that funny, but enjoyable enough with plenty of silly and slapstick moments.

I found the film very entertaining with numerous times laughing out loud.

Good, fun movie that helped cease my bitter mood from being bored.

It was bordering on frustrating because ti was so slow and immature.

Funny movie good pace worth the watch

Given how new rideshare business are still, there's an empty gap that could be filled by someone who can tell a funny story.

It's not serious, it's just silly and entertaining.

Kumail Nanjiani and Dave Bautista give great performances and have great chemistry, which helps make up for some of the predictable and generic moments.

Both leads were very good and even though it's a formulaic buddy cop film, it is well written and a very good comedy!

Kumail nanjiani has to be the most boring actor ever.

I think at least they're entertaining and work in the film.

The whole opposites working together trope here is pretty worn and predictable.

Also the action scenes are both bland and fake looking.

This is an exaggerated but entertaining action comedy if you don't expect too much.

They're easily the sole aspect that made this movie remotely enjoyable.

Dave Bautista takes care of the entertaining exaggerated action in the film and Kuamil Nanjiani tries to provide some comic moments during the Uber ride.

Here he has do to rapid fire jokes, and I think he does better with slower-paced delivery.

Worth watching...

It easily makes the whole movie worth watching.

Worth watching if you like the genre .

Terribly unfunny & predictable .

formulaic a bit?

I realise now I should've walked out.

Is it a great film, well no, but it never tries to be great, just an entertaining film.

As such, it's pretty predictable and plays to the same sort of themes this genre is known for.

Not exellent, but enjoyable time waster .

The longest period in between a funny or action packed scene was probably 5 minutes.

I enjoyed it .

overall the movie is a tasty comedy and is totally worth watching.

There's too many average action-comedy movies these days which seem like they are too repetitive or the plot is just not interesting enough.

But it was surprisingly funny in an unexpected way and everyone in the room was laughing constantly!

Overall, this movie is pointless, has lame villains, has lame, one-dimensional and decidedly unlikable heroes with zero chemistry of any kind, the humor is way too violent, corny, childish, and mean-spirited, the only good performance was by Dave Bautista and everyone else was terrible, they dust off just about every cop movie cliche that is humanly possible and not in a clever way either....

This was a very funny and entertaining time.

Don't waste your time watching this trash, unless you like watching trashy movies.

Imagine every cop movie cliche: death of a partner, neglected and resentful daughter, a case that's being "kicked up to the Feds," a big score that's "going down" right when the cop is supposed to be at his kid's big art show, a crooked cop, and on and on.

I was skeptical when I saw the trailer for this movie but it's worth watching.

The action scenes are entertaining than the comedy scenes in this action comedy.

We enjoyed it.

The chemistry of the two turns out to be quite entertaining and at times chuckle-worthy.

This might the worst movie I've ever watched.

Its entertaining and thats why i watch movies, for this type of film its very good if your looking for Serpico or the French connection than rent it

"Stuber" is solid, summer-movie entertainment; fast, funny, and exciting.

Predictable and funny .

Dave Bautista and Kumail Nanjiani performances are dull.

It's plain and simple with a little predictable suspense.

With Vic as his passenger, he suddenly experiences an exciting danger where he must serve as a driver and as a couple of extra good eyes.

In all categories this movie is fresh and very entertaining.

This was not that bad if a movie really, it had its entertaining moments it had its funny moments.

It's no LETHAL WEAPON, but the banter between Kumail and Bautista provide quite a few entertaining moments.

Very predictable at times.

That was something that seemed to be genuine in terms of how a regular civilian would react to such intense, stressful moments.

Despite ridiculous plot-holes and sloppy editing, I enjoyed it quite a bit and liked the energy between its stars.

Sure, it's kind of a cliche type film.


While it is a bit formulaic it still manages to maintain its sense of fun.

Don't waste your money seeing this at the cinema.

Being bored out of my mind, I had to find something to watch.

The audience I was with certainly enjoyed it.

Funny, silly, enjoyable .

The plot is mundane and boring- characters have no reasons to do what they do.

For me, it takes way too long for them to bond and form the grateful friend relationship that is obviously coming.

Funny and entertaining.

In addition the story is super predictable, with lots of foreshadowing in the jokes and simple conversations early on in the movie.

It depends on what kind of humor you like but I loved it, very entertaining.

A very entertaining action film.

Full of every cop cliche: death of a partner, unlikely partners, mole in the force, frustrated family member, flawed hero, etc. Some of the scenes in the trailer aren't even in the movie.

As cliched and predictable as it may be, Stuber is entertaining, fun buddy fare.

The script is witty n the film fast paced.

But I thought it was much more entertaining and funny than I expected.

It was really funny throughout, had good writing, and entertaining.

Obviously, with a premise like this, chaos begins to ensue and the movie becomes more about the characters than the overall plot, and while that does work sometimes, Stuber is far too cliche of a comedy to really feel for them or get any big laughs in general.

Even though extreme boredom I could not bring myself to click on it.

Great laughs and heart warming moments however it is somewhat predictable Dave Bautista is one of the best parts of this movie.

This movie is super enjoyable, I'm surprised more didn't appreciate it!

Boring,cliched and stupid AF .

Funny & Action Packed .

Good fun, we really enjoyed it!

There's mindless entertainment, and then there's mindless boredom, and the writing was just that.

While a paltry dozen or two killings may seem sad in Real Life, as the Death Toll mounts to STUBER proportions each demise gets funnier and funnier, particularly when creatively divided between nifty skull-splitting head shots, unexpected vehicle run-overs, colorful explosions, and so forth.

So, even if the action is too shaky for its well-versed antagonist and its plot is probably too paint-by-numbers for its own good, the piece emerges as an enjoyable, easy-to-watch experience that doesn't so much as stand out from the crowd as comfortably sit within it.

Average Comedy with a Predictable Plot .

It got boring and bad after a bit.

I kept on figuring out whether the movie is dominantly comedy (which is stupidest) or action (predictable or some kids stuff).

Well worth the watch!!

Also has an interesting plot that keeps the movie exciting and worthwile.

Stuber is entertaining and often hilarious, well worth a watch.

Worth watching, not sure why there is so much hate for this movie.

While the film's (surprisingly intense) action is generally well-choreographed, that is the only thing recommendable about this otherwise disastrous action-comedy.

Tons of action too, very entertaining!

If you want to waste nearly 2 hours of your life put this on, seriously bad film, obviously a paid for by Uber production to promote their app

The humor is dull, the performances are dry, and the story is boring.

There's fast paced comedy & lots of action.

most of the dialogue doesn't help either because it's just too formulaic.

Predictable in many of the right ways .

Overall, it was a very entertaining and fun/funny movie from beginning to end.

Very entertaining comedy that showcases David Bautista's non-Marvel acting skills.

Worth the watch.

And not in a funny way, more in the pretentious way that makes you not want to root for them.

Left the theater happy.

An entertaining screw ball comedy.

And a nice unexpected Jewish touch at the end, including the closing tune:)

This scene super intense, crazy and bloody violence!

Enjoyable Friday afternoon movie.

There are some over the top scenes and quite a bit of violence along with most of the jokes consisting of lowbrow humor but it makes for an enjoyable movie.

Take away all the needless language and full frontal male nudity, and it isn't too bad, if predictable.

Regardless of that, the film was fun and did have some heavy laughs, I enjoyed it.

A love story going nowhere for Stu, a career going nowhere and a part time job where he literally goes anywhere you tell him.

However as you continue watching, the jokes become repetitive and with an inappropriate timing.

Movie was way too enjoyable for less than 8 stars.

The performances are dull.

Look, it did have some funny moments in it, but honestly, it was so mind numbingly predictable that I really wanted to hit my head against a wall at times.

I enjoyed it, unexpected it will be such a cool film!

Luckily the rest of the movie is fun and entertaining.

It is funny, mindless, predictable entertainment; I enjoyed every minute.

For what it is this movie is enjoyable I just wish they would stop putting all the jokes in the trailers.

Fulfilling the dominant co-lead archetype is Bautista's alpha cop, Vic, who has his own issues in his obsession for bad guy Tedjo, played by a very game and entertaining Iko Kuwais, which has very nearly cost him his relationship with his daughter.

However, after saying that, and even though the movie is about an hour and half long, much shorter than the extremely, unnecessarily drawn out movies nowadays, I still found this movie could have been better had it been even shorter.

Bad but enjoyable.

What a waste of time.

Sure the jokes are bland, the dialogue is eye-rolling bad, and half way through the film Stu becomes so incredibly annoying that he makes you want to literally punch yourself in the face.

They are just 2 one-dimensional odd couple cliche partners.

Don´t waste your time not even on stream

Starts fine but after 4-5 minutes it gets really, really boring...

A strained premise, yes, but it kinda works in what is a generally entertaining film.

They portray some intense martial act fighting, breaking wall and things, jump off the hallway of the penthouse, a guy's head get blow up!

The acting combo of Bautista and Najiani are golden, filled to the brim with sarcasm and blunt delivery that should be entertaining.

Firstly the film actually had very entertaining action sequences and good amounts of gore.

The action surprisingly intense, funny and bloody violence!

The comedy and the rest of the story also become somewhat predictable at a point in the film.

More entertaining than Lethal Weapon was.

Enjoyable action flick .

But I quite enjoyed it, it is disappointing to see the star and writer of the wonderful The Big Sick reduced to this role though.

bad movie but mildly entertaining .

actually i enjoyed it , the comedy just get me right ...

Definitely worth watching.

It was light and slight and quite enjoyable.

This scene have slow motion, but quite dope, intense and funny!

They TRY to though in some humanity but even that was trite and far fetched....

Worth the watch .

Good time but very predictable and forgettable .

Dont waste your time or money.

I thought it was funny and action packed and I would buy it on DVD.

Starts with cliches and poor excuses for jokes then gradually becomes just boring with awkward incel/friendzone jokes on the side.

Funny movie..Worth watching actually .

Highly entertaining.

The car chase towards the end of the film is the high point, perfectly mixing exciting action with laughs.

An entertaining buddy cop film with a witty script n crispy editing.

With a script that elicits chuckles more than laughs and some wanting performances from it's leads, this is the kind of comedy that one might see if they're bored on a weekend afternoon and need to kill some time.

This is a funny, entertaining movie.

I literally fell asleep twice for a few minutes.

But worth watching, action, comedy, you could definitely do worse.

Very good and entertaining film from start to finish

Don't waste your time .

Personally, in this genre (action/comedy), it's been a while since I've watched a good entertaining movie with some good laughs.

This was never supposed to be next Scorsese, Tarkovsky or Tarantino FFS For what it was supposed to be-really enjoyed it!

Basically, Stu's sideplot takes a unique take on the nice guy gets the girl plot, and I thoroughly enjoyed it.

The humor consists mostly of the usual modern toilet/genital theme and formulaic 'awkwardness' derived from the interplay betweeen the masculine main character and his really effeminate, nu-male counterpart whose voice and mannerisms are quite hard to bear if you have a somewhat healthy testosterone level.

This scene quite funny and intense!

We had one to many uber references, some sentimental rubbish and cliched behaviour that dragged the ending down.

This movie was enjoyable throughout the whole ride, I've been watching David Bautistas movies and this one by far is funny and did I mention FUNNY...

The most entertaining comedy elements are also repeated too often, so that after the umpteenth time they are no longer so funny.

It was an entertaining movie with plenty of good laughs.

The purpose of action movie is clearly to 100% provide exciting entertainment for the audience.

Has some nice Action Scenes but ultimately a waste of time If you're looking for Originality .

Fun and enjoyable.

Yes, clichéd, predictable and dating back to the late 80s/all-90s.

It was funny for the first 15 minutes until it was repetitive jokes and humor.

Yes, it wasn't continually hilarious and failed to hit the mark with its comedy on many counts, but it was still very entertaining.

I will admit the movie has its funny moments but the dull and stupid ones far outweigh them.

Mildly agreeable but formulaic and forgettable buddy action/comedy operates the way most formulaic and forgettable buddy action/comedies do: limited interest, disposable action scenes, a few laughs scattered among the duds.

Funny, entertaining and just plain awesome.

The action scenes were entertaining enough and Iko Uwais did an amazing job with his fight scenes as always.

After a while I couldn't stop laughing at it, the way jokes didn't work, the tired cliché rolled out endlessly.

For the first 30 minutes of the movie, this movie was bad all jokes fell flat I was literally falling asleep.

Stuber is a fun, funny, engaging and entertaining movie and is a pure example of buddy cop comedy.

The film is very entertaining.

Entertaining .

Nothing in this story works - from the first scene, you can tell that the director is not too familiar with camera work; shaky cams,overly drawn out scenes, and stupid characters are rampant during the runtime.

I laughed maybe once, which is unacceptable with such a recycled and predictable plot like this.

Nice entertaining film, kumail nanjiani is a surprise, bautista a pleasure to watch.

And, most of the time, it isnt clever or witty, either; it is just there to fulfill the cliche and rambles on like a bad night at an improv comedy night.

Don't waste your time on this.

Acting & plot: Predictable, but somewhat enjoyable.

And finally the plot twists were entertaining.

The story line was also entertaining, in this genre you can't expect heavy stories, just some fun and action.

Yes, there is police corruption and predictable plot twist along the way.

What really made it so good was the fact that although it was ridiculously funny, it maintained a solid, exciting plot, which few truly funny movies do.

Mixture of all races in an Entertaining movie 👍 .

Given the popularity of ride-sharing services such as Uber and Lyft, I thought the idea for a buddy comedy about Uber could be both entertaining and timely, and the film has two strong leads (Kumail Nanjiani and Dave Bautista.

Good on screen chemistry between the two leads, good dialogue and tons of action all combined for an enjoyable outing.

In a summer that has, at times, felt lazy, and at others been very entertaining and engaging, this movie feels like the former.

Might been more satisfied renting and watching at home, but I enjoyed it just the same.

The ratio of action and comedy was perfect, so that it was exciting, thrilling and funny all at once.
