Stu Prasad (Kumail Nanjiani), a meager Uber driver obsessed with getting his first five-star review in the app, is forced by an aggressive Los Angeles Police Department detective Vic Manning (Dave Bautista) to drive him around town to catch notorious drug lord Oka Tedjo (Iko Uwais). For Vic, it is especially personal, as Tedjo had murdered Sara Morris (Karen Gillan), Vic's rookie partner, six months earlier. However, Vic is unable to do the task alone as he recently got a laser eye surgery that prevents him from having good sight.
Along the way, Stu deals with Vic's deranged behavior while trying to express his feelings to his friend Becca (Betty Gilpin). Stu and Vic confront each other about Stu's inability to man up while Vic is called out for his toxic masculinity and negligence toward his daughter Nicole (Natalie Morales) as it draws similarities to the attitude that Vic's own father had shown him.
Clues lead Stu and Vic to travel to various locations in Los Angeles, such as Koreatown, then a male stripper club and a house in Long Beach when Vic detains a key suspect of his investigation and rescues the dog Pico (Stroker) from being drugged to hide the evidence. However, Stu accidentally shoots the thug in the leg and Vic leads them to an animal hospital where a group of thugs find the two and try to attack them. While Stu is scared, Vic manages to take control of the situation by making Stu throw dog food cans at the thugs and shooting those who got stunned.
Vic, using the phone of one of the thugs, sends a text to their leader to inform of "his" death and then runs to Nicole's museum exposition to warn her about the impending danger. Meanwhile, Stu struggles to keep his relationship with Becca, a friend and partner of his in an upcoming spin biking gym who is heartbroken due to a fight with another love interest and is wanting him come to her home to get drunk and have casual sex. However, Stu is more interested in dating her instead.
