It's the story of a limo driver whose life has recently fallen apart, again. The majority of the movie taking place over the course of about 24 hours.
The story is frenetic for the most part which is its blessing and its curse. They really need to trim the movie down or add more back story for Stretch's adversaries. Only two of the characters are really fleshed out, everyone else is just a prop for that scene's action or punchline. You could remove some scenes with little to no effect on the story at all.
The cast and the look of the film was great. There still are some really good moments but the story doesn't have a clear idea of what it wants to be.
Well worth the watch, just don't go in expecting something fantastic.
