User Reviews

Joe Carnahan never disappoints, Every frame of Stretch is how you want it to happen.
8 October 2014 | by (Saudi Arabia) – See all my reviews

Stretch is a story of unlucky person and unlucky gambler who lives in LA, he wanted to be an actor but instead he's limo driver and fate never been on his side, it always has been until he meets Roger Karos (Chris Pine) and his life changes in one day.

Stretch is so entertaining and every second of it is enjoyable with intense events that will make the viewer happy and satisfied, it's funny, edgy and a wonderful experience, Joe Carnahan knows what he's doing and that's why Stretch is a very great and entertaining movie to watch with great performances from Patrick Wilson, Chris Pine and Ed Helms with a very nice appearances from Norman Reedus as himself, Ray Liotta and David Hasselhoff.

I won't ruin the movie for anyone who didn't watch the movie but my final words are.. watch Stretch, you won't regret it. It's what all movies should be about, Entertaining.
