I was not expecting a Freaky Friday situation in this movie, that adds an entirely new layer of stupid. Jack Black playing a teenage girl does look funny though. Kevin Hart screaming as a teenage black male sounds like he gets to play the same role he does in every movie.

I like that they tried going a different direction with this, but it's poor execution. To much comedy

Good point. I never would call the original a comedy. Growing up and watching it I would have called it Action/Adventure/Family Thriller.

So it's like a Tron/Jumanji hybrid. It seems a lot more "silly comedy" than I would have expected.

So, from this I would deduce that you will be first in line when this movie drops... am I right?

At first, I was hesitant to even watch the trailer for this because I thought it was going to be awful. The first trailer makes it look fun. Granted, a totally ridiculous idea of a movie, but Kevin Hart and the Rock are comedy gold together. Movie looks like a lot of fun. I'm hoping the RT score will reflect good things.

I completely forgot they were in a comedy movie together just a year ago.

The Rock over acted in it, but other than that, it was entertaining. I love Kevin Hart. I think he's hilarious

I get it, he's basically the black Kevin James/Adam Sandler.

I think Hart can be hilarious, but as I've said before, his schtick in movies has worn thin for me.

The Rock acts exactly the amount that is needed for any given role, thank you very much.

I'm sorry. Dwayne Johnson over acted in Central Intelligence. The Rock did very well. Better? lol

This movie was actually awesome. All four of the main characters were great. Jack Black playing a teenage girl was the best tho.

Hart is hit or miss for me in most of his movies and he was on his way of becoming an Adam Sandler (not a compliment). I thought he was really funny in this and kept his Kevin Hart screaming to the right amount.
