Director Joe Carnahan‘s latest action comedy has stood the test of time. It was back in January that Universal Pictures initially switched gears and decided it wasn’t in their favor to spend $20 million dollars or more needed to advertise Carnahan‘s latest modestly budgeted $5 million dollar road comedy, Stretch for what would have been its release back in March.
A limo driver (Wilson) discovers he only has one shift left to pay off a big debt, and he rolls the dice. When the chauffeur picks up a reclusive billionaire (Pine) with some deviant appetites, the driver vows to fulfill the guy’s every request, no matter how weird, to score the big tip that could square him. But as the night grows stranger and the driver is pushed into some very dangerous encounters, he worries that the freak in his back seat might just be his final fare.
