Jason Bourne meets The Biggest Loser in this hilarious comedy staring Kevin Hart and Dwayne Johnson.

Bullied as a teen for being overweight, Bob Stone (Johnson) shows up the bar with the same upbeat personality but now looking fit and muscular. At there, he meets up with the only person who stuck up for him in high school,  Calvin Joyner (Hart), who is now a fast-talking accountant who misses his glory days as a popular athlete. Stone, now a lethal CIA agent, recruits Calvin for his “sweet number skills” to help him bring down the man who is responsible for compromising the U.S. spy satellite system and killing his former partner, Phil (Aaron Paul).

Together, the former classmates encounter shootouts, espionage and double-crosses while trying to prevent worldwide chaos.

In our interviews with Johnson, Hart, and Paul the actors share how being a badass isn’t as easy as it looks, but they had a lot of laughs trying.

Central Intelligence is currently showing in theaters nationwide.
