    For 100 minutes, I didn't think about anything else at all. And sometimes that small relief is the best thing a movie can give.

    Hart is clearly working overtime; there’s nothing effortless about his histrionic delivery, but it works.

    Turns out to be something like a comic riff on "Training Day." Leaning more toward Hart's brand of slightly raunchy humor rather than Ice Cube's equally popular family-friendly fare, the PG-13 film exhibits broad appeal.

    A lazy and listless buddy-cop action-comedy that fades from memory as quickly as its generic title.

    Story and his four screenwriters don’t exactly strain themselves to find a new angle in this mismatched buddy comedy. Picture “Rush Hour,” and then imagine Hart as the annoying kid in “Are We There Yet?” You’ve basically just watched the entire movie in your head.

    Ride Along is a film so casual in its conception and execution, it should be titled Drive Thru.

    Ride Along, set in Atlanta, gives shoddiness a bad name.

    This movie deserves more than it gets. It kept me rolling!! This movie is number 2 on my Top 10 funniest movies ever. Ice Cube wasn't acting the best this time but that's okay Kevin Hart made us look over the fact that cube wasn't on his game. It's definitely worth the time. So if you want a night of good laughs this is the movie to watch. So I give this movie a 9 out of 10. Thanks for reading. Expand

    It's MUCH funnier and a MUCH better time than the critics give it credit for. Ice Cube is a little off his game in terms of comic timing, but Kevin Hart is hilarious! Easy recommendation if you're just looking for a night of laughs. Expand

    Hilarious movie, and very entertaining. The interactions between Kevin Hart and Ice Cube are worth watching. However, the movie's ending feels rushed and incomplete, and basically makes the rest of the movie feel as though it was there for nothing. A lot more could have been added to the movie; in fact, an additional 30 minutes could have been added to prevent the ending seeming as incomplete as it is. Expand

    It has its shares of outrageous laughs, but in the end, "Ride Along" is a comedy that delivers not many laughs that you would expect. I really enjoyed the second half of this movie more than than the first half. Maybe because there are scenes full of comical moments that are not seen anywhere in the trailers or promos. Other than that, it's still missing a step. Overall, even with some outrageous laughs, you still walk out of this movie feeling a bit underwhelmed. I give it a C+! But lets face it, you won't agree with me. So why fight it. Everyone else will love this. Overall, you'll still laugh your butts off. Expand

    Completely unfunny, tedious, spectacularly moronic, and completely barren of any laughs whatsoever, Ride Along is a complete waste of comedic talent and time. Expand

    this movie is definitely a piece of **** I know this because it popped up on my computer and pissed me the **** off. I would never, and will never support such an asinine form of advertisement, and refuse to participate in such a bogus form of intellectual degradation. Piss the ****ed off.
