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.
Cube is solid as the impenetrable brick wall that Hart's comic barrage bounces off. Their odd-couple shtick delivers laughs. But more often than not "Ride Along" chokes on its own fumes.Betsy Sharkey, Los Angeles Times, 01.16.2014
Hart's springy energy and Ice Cube's deadpan snarl can be amusing, but they can't compensate for weak material.Rafer Guzman, Newsday, 01.17.2014
At its best, Ride Along is tolerable. At its worst, it borders on insulting.James Berardinelli, ReelViews, 01.16.2014
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, 01.23.2014
