Jumanji: The Next Level arrives on Blu-ray and DVD on March 17 after tearing up the global box office this winter, giving those who missed the movie in theaters a chance to spend a night at home with one of the best buddy-comedy duos in the business, Kevin Hart and Dwayne Johnson. (Those who did see it on the big screen can now go back for seconds.) To celebrate the reuniting of Hart and Johnson, and to pay tribute to an epic and jibe-filled bromance that has leapt from the big screen to Instagram and beyond, we devoted this episode of “Vs.” to the co-stars of Central Intelligence, Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, and – small spoiler alert – Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw.

Find out as host Mark “French Tuck” Ellis breaks down the battle by Tomatometer, box office, acting versatility, and a special wildcard category. And as always, if you disagree with the ref’s call, have at us in the comments.
