Story


Kevin Hart and Ice Cube lead the lineup in "Ride Along", the new film from the director and the producer of the blockbuster comedy Think Like a Man. When a fast-talking guy joins his girlfriend's brother-a hot-tempered cop-to patrol the streets of Atlanta, he gets entangled in the officer's latest case. Now, in order to prove that he deserves his future bride, he must survive the most insane 24 hours of his life.

For the past two years, high-school security guard Ben (Hart) has been trying to show decorated APD detective James (Cube) that he's more than just a video-game junkie who's unworthy of James' sister, Angela (Tika Sumpter). When Ben finally gets accepted into the academy, he thinks he's earned the seasoned policeman's respect and asks for his blessing to marry Angela.

Knowing that a ride along will demonstrate if Ben has what it takes to take care of his sister, James invites him on a shift designed to scare the hell out of the trainee. But when the wild night leads them to the most notorious criminal in the city, James will find that his new partner's rapid-fire mouth is just as dangerous as the bullets speeding at it.

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..for 100 minutes, I didn't think about anything else at all. And yes, sometimes that small relief is the best thing a movie can give..”
by Stephen Whitty [Newark Star-Ledger]
“..a lazy and listless buddy-cop action-comedy that fades from memory as quickly as its generic title..”
by Scott Foundas [Variety]
“..Ride Along, could do the trick, but it might've helped if it were a smarter, funnier movie..”
by Chris Nashawaty [Entertainment Weekly]
