What’s a summer without a comedic action duo taking to the screen? The Man from Toronto, starring Kevin Hart and Woody Harrelson is just that.

While Hart is obviously known for his comedic chops, having toured in sold-out arenas, it may surprise some that Harrelson also has roots doing stand-up comedy. Additionally, for those not as familiar with Harrelson’s Cheers days, he actually won an Emmy for Outstanding Supporting Actor In A Comedy Series in 1989. So it stands to reason that this new movie has a good chance of making viewers laugh when it’s released.

The Man from Toronto plot

The Man from Toronto follows longtime screw-up Terry (Kevin Hart) as his identity is mistakenly confused with that of a deadly assassin (Woody Harrelson) at an Airbnb. As the two attempt to clear up the mishap, they’ll try not to drive each other nuts. Terry in particular will also try not to get murdered in the process.

It sure sounds like the kind of action-comedy that has qualified as a summer blockbuster in the past (even if it's streaming).
