The story follows a one-time bullied geek who grew up to be a lethal CIA agent (Dwayne Johnson), coming home for his high school reunion. Claiming to be on a top-secret case, he enlists the help of the former "big man on campus" (Kevin Hart), now an accountant who misses his glory days. But before the staid numbers cruncher realizes what he's getting into, it's too late to get out, as his increasingly unpredictable new friend drags him through a world of shootouts, double-crosses and espionage that could get them both killed in more ways than he can count.

Action-comedy is charming but predictable; some violence.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Central Intelligence is an unoriginal but sometimes charming buddy action-comedy starring Kevin Hart and action star Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson. One main character is a CIA agent trying to foil an international plot, so you can expect a heavy helping of violence, including fights, shoot-outs, broken bones, a severed ear, people being thrown out windows, and more. There are also some cruel high school-set scenes: Bullies converge on a classmate and throw him naked into the center of a basketball court. Language includes "s--t," "a--hole," and more, plus one use of "f--k." Character kiss, jokes can get racy, some raunchy YouTube clips are shown on a computer screen, and one scene shows the bare backside of a character dancing in the shower.
