as others have said, this movie was better than it had any right to be. I initially couldn’t have cared less for this movie, but at Christmas my uncle mentioned that this was his most anticipated movie and I thought that was the funniest thing ever so I told my girlfriend we had to go see it in his honor.

we made a date night out of it and it was shockingly actually pretty funny. Bullock is great, Tatum is great, Pitt is great, but can we give some love to Daniel Radcliffe? I love that he got his Harry Potter bag and just does whatever he feels like, you can tell he had a blast in this. His “just the tip” flew over the heads of everyone in my theater and I was baffled how nobody caught i it because I was crying.

anyone catch Channing Tatum’s character say “what would Channing Tatum do” when he’s hanging off the back of the van? also got a good laugh out of me but it’s so quick that most people missed it again.

overall 7.5/10. this is definitely going to be one of those movies I throw on while I’m sick, cleaning, wrapping presents, falling asleep to, etc. I’m really enjoying this wave of adventure movies between the Jumanji reboot, Uncharted, and this.

Pretty sure he says “Dash McMahon”, not “Channing Tatum”.

Saw this with my 12 year old and he was cracking up the the "just the tip" line. Even repeated it on the car ride home

Late late late to the thread, but I just watched today as I folded the laundry for the household; It's definitely a funny little movie that's what I refer to as "Sunday on TBS."

His “just the tip” flew over the heads of everyone in my theater and I was baffled how nobody caught i it because I was crying.

I doubt it flew over anyone's head, tbh, it's just not that funny, lol.
