Ride Along

Rated PG-13 100 min. 2014



Alongside Ice Cube, comedian Kevin Hart stars in director Tim Story's tepid new comedy. Hart plays Ben, a high-school security guard who attempts to win the respect of his future brother-in-law (Ice Cube) by going on a ride-along with the heroic cop. Story, though he's responsible for those horrible Fantastic Four films, has been behind the camera for both actors' finest work to date—Think Like a Man and Barber Shop, respectively. But Phil Hay's script hamstrings what could have been a terrific comedy by recycling Ice Cube's rap lyrics into dialogue and relying on Hart's height as the punch line of nearly every joke.
