buddy comedy runs on fumesIf you're going to see one comedy starring Kumail Nanjiani as an Uber driver, please make it the 2017 film he co-scripted, "The Big Sick". In "Stuber," Nanjiani is again behind the wheel of a compact ride-sharing vehicle, but this time, the comedy is running on fumes and the company (Dave Bautista rather than Zoe Kazan in "The Big Sick") isn't nearly as good.Desperate for a five-star rating, Stu is reluctantly sucked into a "Beverly Hills Cop"-like buddy action comedy that quickly turns violent and a little shrill.The movie's premise is one long Uber ad, but it's a clever enough buddy comedy setup, and both Nanjiani and Bautista are good comic performers.
