    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.

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

The plot is predictable even for a buddy cop movie, and the action is not very good. That being said Kevin Hart was funny and the movie did score some big laughs in the theater I was in. However despite its humor the movie does start to drag on. I would only recommend this movie if you are a big Kevin Hart fan. Expand
