You've got to like Kevin Hart's histrionic comedy to really enjoy this buddy movie. It is not my cup of tea but it was just about bearable for an hour and thirty nine minutes.
This is a watchable comedy about a wannabe cop in love with a hard nosed detective's sister who goes on a ride along to prove himself worthy. It is all very predictable even the 'twist' but it is well done and its a good HD print and soundtrack.
Ice Cube is still cool even despite his co-star and the cast do a good job but you really need to like Hart to enjoy this. Perhaps I'm just too old!

Just watched this today, can't wait to get it on DVD. Kevin Hart makes this movie, by bouncing off ice cube's cool stature. Amazing to switch off and let the comedy sink in. Loved every second!

I wasn't expecting much from Ride Along. After I heard about the poor reviews, I thought it would provide me with a few laughs, but little else. But it was much funny than I thought. I laughed frequently throughout the movie, the most I have for sometime and had a great time. It's not a top-class movie, but if you look at it for what it is, there's little to fault. Recommended for comedy fans.

Saw this when it came out. Wasn't expecting much, as not seen either of these 2 before and was pleasantly pleased that we opted for this film. Small cinema and a lot of applause at the end. Been a long time since I've experienced that !! Kevin Hart is so funny and I cant agree with previous comments re Wil Smith, Martin Lawrence etc, thought he was much funnier than them.

Very funny buddy cop movie, its almost like Ice Cube's character from 22 jump street got a full length movie role! Cube and Kevin Hart are both really great fun comedy actors on top form in this! Good simple story, maybe a bit predictable but great fun non the less, there's nothing bad to say really, if you love a good comedy this is really worth checking out for a night in of laugh out loud no brainer antics! roll on ride along 2.
Blu-ray picture is good and there are plenty of great features too for the money.

Format: DVD
Ben "The Black Hammer" Barber (Kevin Hart) is living with Angela (Tika Sumpter) the sister of super cop James Payton (Ice Cube). Ben works as a school security guard and aspires to be a policeman like James. Ben plays video games and is not highly thought of by James. When Ben asks James permission to marry his sister, James wants Ben to prove himself by going on a "ride along." While James puts Ben through the comedy ringer, he is looking for the elusive Omar (Laurence Fishburne), a major crime boss in the city.

The plot was fairly simple and didn't develop the complexity or irony I was hoping for, i.e. Omar being part of Ben's on-line gamers. The comedy was akin to skit comedy with scenes being almost unrelated and the comedy of one scene not building on another. Of course one shouldn't expect too much from the guy who brought us "Employee of the Month."

The movie is a good popcorn film good for a few laughs.

Parental Guide: 1 quick f-bomb. No sex or nudity. Sex talk.

Really not great. I'm not sure what the other reviewers have seen but for me it had very few funny moments. Poor film.
