THE BLACKCOAT'S DAUGHTER: Watch The Trailer For Osgood Perkins' First Feature

Exceedingly silly, Central Intelligence survives a rough start to achieve at least one of its evident goals, namely, to be a lowbrow comedy for audiences with low expectations. Dwayne Johnson and Kevin Hart star as an updated pair of 1980's...
