The Story Line:
In 1996, the famous student and the star athlete Calvin Joyner were honored at the high school’s senior gathering. Halfway during Joyner’s speaking, Trevor Olson together with his buddies grab shy, the overweight learner Robbie Wheirdicht coming from the locker room of the boys and just throw him in the assembly nude. Only Joyner together with his girlfriend, Maggie, were supportive towards Wheirdicht, who jog away really quick right after Joyner has handed him his jacket to cover the private parts of his body. Everybody else, with the laugh, the devastated and the bullies Wheirdicht go out of the school and did not appear after the incident.
After twenty years, Joyner ties the knot with Johnson and was employed being a forensic accountant but was dissatisfied about his career. Johnson suggested that they must see a therapist to recover their failing marriage. In their work, Joyner accepted a friend request in the Facebook account from a man known as Bob Stone, who revealed that he was Wheirdicht and requested that they should meet. Joyner was shocked to witness that Wheirdicht has changed into a confident, muscular man. Stone asked Joyner to evaluate some of the accounting records. Joyner interpreted the records as the multi-million dollar dealings from auctioned, with the last payment being set to be paid the next day. Stone evades Joyner’s queries and exhaust the night on the couch.
The Writers’ View:
The movie begun well enough, and the makeover of the previously bullied fatty Wierdich’ in todays’ muscular and huge Rob Stone and how the man now re-entry the life of the co-lead role Calvin Joyner, a man whose distinguished high school proms have in his personal estimated fizzled. Stone was a gloomy enthusiastic and presumed while Joyner played the baffled and unwillingly accommodates nebbish. But it has been carried on that long, injuring for the laugh. Hart being Joyner goes from the normal spoken voice to the Chris Rock method falsetto screaming with evidently tiny provocation and Dwaine Johnson’s played his huge overplayed smile and that cheerful repartee gag often that it turned to be distracting and tiresome. The film was mishandled in opportunities and it gets worse as it plays on.
