About the Movie

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.

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: Nothing in the movie makes sense, but I prefer to think that "Ride Along" is just a badly told joke, rather than an insult to its audience. – David Denby, New Yorker, Sep 22, 2014

Rotten: Hart's springy energy and Ice Cube's deadpan snarl can be amusing, but they can't compensate for weak material. – Rafer Guzman, Newsday, Jan 17, 2014

Rotten: This routine buddy picture offers plenty of instant gratification (Cube and Hart are easygoing screen presences, and many of their one-liners are funny) but shows little concern for characterization, storytelling, or even comic pacing. – Ben Sachs, Chicago Reader, Jan 23, 2014

Rotten: This is a live-action cartoon. – Richard Roeper, Richard, Jan 21, 2014
