Bob Stone, a one-time bullied overweight geek grows up to be a lethal CIA agent who enlists the help of former 'big man on campus' Calvin Joyner, a friend from high school to engage in an international espionage.
Bullied as a teen for being overweight, Bob Stone (Dwayne Johnson) shows up to his high school reunion looking fit and muscular. While there, he finds Calvin Joyner (Kevin Hart), a fast-talking accountant who misses his glory days as a popular athlete. Stone is now a lethal CIA agent who needs Calvin's number skills to help him save the compromised U.S. spy satellite system. Together, the former classmates encounter shootouts, espionage and double-cross while trying to prevent worldwide chaos.
Continuity After their first meeting in the bar (between Bob and Calvin), while walking out to the motorbike (and after the ride), Bob goes from sneakers to open sandals and back.
Continuity When The Rock and Kevin Hart leave the bar, the bouncer requests the patron walking up to the door for their ID (using hand gestures). In the next shot further away from the door, we see the same patron and hand gestures.
Continuity When Calvin (Kevin Hart) spills his coffee next to the photocopier, he used the garbage can to cover his spill. In the next scene, the garbage can is back to its original position.
Miscellaneous While Phil reloads his gun during the bridge scene, a shell casing ejects. This could not happen because the gun was already emptied and no shell casing should be present in the gun.
Miscellaneous When Calvin first logs onto the website and finds out its an auction finishing in 14 hours time, it is approximately 11pm so that would mean the auction would finish at 1pm the next day but it doesn't seem to finish for at least 24 hours if not 36 hours.
