The best thing about Stuber is the two leads, Dave Bautista and Kumail Nanjiani. Both have buckets of charisma and charm, and putting them together as an unlikely crime-fighting duo should only make their appeal exponentially greater. It is fantastic seeing them work together in this solid action/comedy, but it falls short of the greatness it should have achieved.

The deliciously antagonistic chemistry between Bautista and Nanjiani - who come across as more likely to murder each other than to die at the hands of heavily armed drug dealers - fuels this breakneck buddy movie.

Clearly surge pricing also applies to jokes, because it's mostly about as funny as a traffic jam.

"Stuber" squeaks by on the charm of its two male stars, who handle the nonsense capably.

When a comedy is as unfunny as this one, its stars tend to bear the full force of your irritation but in this case, all I felt was sympathy.

Barely earning a two-star rating, you should definitely swipe left on Stuber.

This talented ensemble will be happier with this misfire in their rear-view mirror.

There is bountiful chemistry between Nanjiani and Bautista, who spend most of the film loudly bickering. But the film's pure action elements often feel haphazard and clunky...

It's not the clumsiness of the filmmaking that rankles so much as the hypocrisy.

A riotous retro pairing of serious violence and serious laughs.
