Detective Vic Manning is obsessed with avenging the death of his partner, on the day he has laser eye surgery he cannot drive because he cannot see properly enlists the help of Stu an Uber driver to attempt to crack the case.
Stu works in a sporting goods store and pretty much hates everything about it. He is in love with his best friend Angie who slightly uses him to help set up a new spinning business. Working for Uber on the side to try and make more money to be in the partnership with, he wants nothing more than 5 star ratings from that.
One day when he comes up with cop Vic in his car he will not have a very pleasant experience. Yet he is still determined to get that five star rating! His whole life is about to change in that one day as he goes through some seriously messed up moments and times. Things he never ever thought would happen to him, including shooting a man and watching people die. All in the quest for Vic to find the man that killed his partner. But the situation is a lot deeper than he could have ever imagined.
Even describing parts of the film makes me annoyed at how truly awful and bad this film is from start to finish. Like seriously nothing in it is funny at all. Which is such a shame considering how good both Dave Bautista and Kumail Nanjiani are at comedic moments in films. But they just do not work together very well within this one.
I guess Uber must get plenty of royalties though with all of the mentions and build up around how the app works with the drivers. I can actually say that I have never ever used Uber and don’t really intend on it either. In the UK they don’t really have the best reputation in all. I watched this film on a flight and that is probably the reason I kept watching it as I had nowhere else to go!
