Memorial Day Weekend seems like the perfect time to take your family to the movies, but picking a flick that’s worth the money AND appropriate for your whole crew can be tricky.

The ads for Central Intelligence say that sometimes you need a little Hart and a BIG Johnson. Makes you wonder if they didn’t just make the whole movie around that joke, right?
Well, the pairing of Kevin Hart and Dwayne Johnson certainly has fans excited, and so does the trailer featuring a pudgy, teenage version of “The Rock.” That might be worth the ticket price alone but lucky for us, we don’t have to pay for tickets! Just click HERE to snag your Central Intelligence passes, then watch the trailer again. And remember to get to the theater early! These will get you in for free but you’ll still need to get there in time to save your seat.
