A mild-mannered Uber driver named Stu picks up a grizzled detective who is hot on the trail of a sadistic, bloodthirsty terrorist and finds himself thrust into a harrowing ordeal where he has to keep his wits, himself unharmed, and work with his passenger while maintaining his high-class rating.
When Stu finally stands up to Richie, he walks up to him and says "My name is Stu. How do you do?" He says it the exact same way Johnny Cash says a similar line in his song "A Boy Named Sue". See more »

Nooo! It was a lease! How could it explode? It didn't have any fuel in it.
[the answer dawns on Stu]
The propane tanks.

Batista has two vehicle movies coming out close together. This one and My Spy. I guess they think he's gained enough popularity from Guardians of the Galaxy for box office pull. Not sure if Stuber is going to achieve this for him. It's not a bad movie and there are some funny jokes in it though. Kumail Nanjiani Is really the funniest one? He steals the show. He makes a lot of quips under his breath that are hilarious, and you will miss them if you are not paying attention. I thought he was hilarious in Portlandia. Batista has proven himself to be a pretty good comedic actor too. He was funny in Guardians of the Galaxy. It's a little formulaic and some of the jokes are recycled, but as I said there is some genuine lol humor in it.
