For the past two years, high school security guard Ben (Kevin Hart) has been trying to show decorated detective James (Ice Cube) that he’s more than just a video game junkie who’s unworthy of James’ sister. When Ben finally gets accepted into the police academy, James invites him on a ride-along designed to scare the hell out of him and ultimately demonstrate if Ben has what it takes to take care of his sister. 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. Also starring John Leguizamo and Laurence Fishburne, Ride Along is an action-packed comedy with big thrills and even bigger laughs.

A quick summary of the film: Kevin Hart wants to prove that he is man enough to marry Ice Cube's sister. Ice Cube plays a police officer so Kevin Hart decides he will go on a Ride Along to prove himself and also test his own aspirations of being a cop. The movie also stars Laurence Fishburne and John Leguizamo. I would love to see a sequel on this one.
I am sure many detractors will say that 21 Jump Street - and now 22 Jump Street - were funnier, but I felt the dialogue and sequences in those films were too predicatable. I know that was part of the humor and intention, but then why am I paying for a movie I can completely predict? Also 22 Jump Street was just a lazy sequel.
(*ie Paul Blart with Kevin James, The Other Guys with Will Ferrel, Observe and Report with Seth Rogan, etc)
Not for young children there is cursing and some graphic language.
And to answer those who say, "that is who he is". I understand that his persona is a "Tough Guy", but lets all be realistic... Would you spend all day watching that and not get annoyed at some point?
Anyway on to more review... I really think Kevin Hart can be funny, but I guess I would have toned down the bravado of I'm gonna prove I am a "Tough Guy" under tone of the movie as it started to make the show very unrealistic to me.
So in the end, I give it only two stars. I walked away from this with the opinion that I would rather watch another 'Rush Hour' movie than this one at all.
