Ride Along Synopsis
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.

John Leguizamo and Laurence Fishburne join the cast of the action-comedy directed by Tim Story. Ride Along is produced by Will Packer (Think Like a Man), alongside Ice Cube, Matt Alvarez (Barbershop) and Larry Brezner (Good Morning, Vietnam).

Comedian and actor Kevin Hart went from bit player to leading man over the last several months, starring in both Ride Along and About Last Night in a relatively short period of time. It’s the former that has made its way onto Blu-ray and DVD this week, telling a sort-of buddy cop story about a mysterious crime boss and cleaning up the streets of Atlanta.

Weekend Box Office: Ride Along Threepeats Number One On Slow Superbowl Weekend Weekend Box Office: Ride Along Threepeats Number One On Slow Superbowl Weekend
Ride Along held on to the number one spot, adding $12 million to is $92 million total. Frozen has been showing a James Cameron-esque ability to hold on to top box office positions, returning back to second place for this, its eleventh weekend in theaters. With this kind of staying power it's poised to break into the $400 million bracket and possibly give Iron Man 3 a run for second highest grossing release of 2013.

Critics agreed that there wasn't much to laugh at in Kevin Hart and Ice Cube's new comedy Ride Along, but if the past has taught us anything it's that packing 30 second TV spots with images of ex-rappers making angry faces and small children insulting popular stand-up comedians will put butts in the seats almost every time.

Kevin Hart and Ice Cube couldn’t have had more disparate paths leading them to star together in the new comedy Ride Along. One has spent the last few years making a name for himself as an actor and becoming one of the biggest stand-up comedians in the world, while the other came up as a hip-hop artist during the rise of gangster rap and has worked as an actor for nearly twenty five years.

This Rotten Week: Predicting Ride Along, Jack Ryan, Devil's Due and The Nut Job Reviews This Rotten Week: Predicting Ride Along, Jack Ryan, Devil's Due and The Nut Job Reviews
Movie studios are starting to get back into the swing of things after a few slow weeks. That means the winter movies season is kicking into gear. And while these movies don’t look particularly good by any means, at least they don’t involve Hercules. This week we’ve got ride alongs, shadow recruits, the devil and nut jobs.

January Movie Preview: Jack Ryan, Hercules And Frankenstein Come Out To Play January Movie Preview: Jack Ryan, Hercules And Frankenstein Come Out To Play
It is a new year in cinema, at least for everyone who isn’t still coked up from Martin Scorsese’s Wolf of Wall Street. Unfortunately, January tends to be a dumping ground where studios release all of the films that weren’t good enough to push for Oscar consideration or big enough to release during the summer tentpole season.

Ride Along Trailer Bangs Out More Generic Jokes While Kevin Hart Covers Skee-Lo Ride Along Trailer Bangs Out More Generic Jokes While Kevin Hart Covers Skee-Lo
Think Like a Man’s Tim Story is inviting America to Ride Along with Kevin Hart and Ice Cube in a fight against crime, one corny joke at a time. I’m looking forward to this movie more than I thought I would before the first trailer came out, and it’s based mostly on the chemistry between the two leads, which covers up any imperfections with energetic line readings.

Kevin Hart And Ice Cube Team Up Buddy Cop Style In First Ride Along Trailer Kevin Hart And Ice Cube Team Up Buddy Cop Style In First Ride Along Trailer
The trailer has some funny moments and there's some potentially interesting chemistry brewing between Hart and Ice Cube, the whole thing is disappointingly dragged down with generic jokes that we've seen 10,000 times before. How is it that filmmakers still think that the the bait-and-switch practice proposal is still a fresh and funny idea? It doesn't matter if it's a lunch lady, a mirror, or the protagonist's best friend - it's a gag that has been done to death

Bruce McGill Joins Kevin Hart And Ice Cube In Cop Comedy Ride Along Bruce McGill Joins Kevin Hart And Ice Cube In Cop Comedy Ride Along
Bruce McGill is the one of the best kinds of actor - one of those who just randomly shows up in a bit part of the movie or television show you're watching and just completely disappears into his character after a moment of "where do I know that guy from?" And now he's getting set to put those skills to the test once again in Ride Along.

It's been nearly three years since we've heard any updates on the Ice Cube vehicle Ride Along. Back in 2009 Cube signed on to front the buddy comedy, playing an intimidating cop who looks to split up his sister's engagement with a privileged white psychiatrist (read: wimp) by taking him on a world-rattling ride along.
