Critic's Review Heading

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Average It offers generic action, a trite storyline, a predictable ending, uneven comedy, and passable chemistry between the leads.

Roger Ebert Full Review
Average 'Ride Along' really isn't much of a movie, but the quality that makes it mostly watchable, and occasionally enjoyable, is the fact that it seems to know that it isn't much of a movie, and doesn't push against that fact too much.

USA Today Full Review
Above Average Save for a story so clichéd it nearly derails the film, Ride Along discovers something wholly unique in Kevin Hart.

Washington Post Full Review
Above Average An enjoyable break from the Oscar blues

D ETAILED S TORYLINE
For the past two years, high-school security guard Ben has been trying to show decorated APD detective James that he's more than just a video-game junkie who's unworthy of James' sister, Angela. 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 of Tyler Perry's A Madea Christmas, television's The Have and Have Nots). 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.
