RIDE ALONG (2014) – My rating: 6/10

RideAlongI’m not a fan of Kevin Hart however, my favorable feelings towards Ice Cube is the saving grace for Ride Along.  I deem most movies Kevin Hart plays in slap stick and I don’t like most slap stick comedy.  Take out all the ranting and high pitched whining Kevin does in Ride Along and you might have a descent movie.  Ice Cube’s character (James Payton) is a detective with a foxy sister name Angelia Payton, played by (Tika Sumpter.  James can’t figure what Angelia sees in Kevin Harts character (Ben Barber) who has recently joined the police academy.  James decides to take Ben on a ride along to show his sister what Ben is not made of.  Of course Ben starts botching up the investigation and street relationships immediately.  Thank goodness for  John Leguizamo’s character, Santiago who really gives this story some flavor.  Since Ride Along is a fantasy, anything goes.  The craziness being generated from Keven Hart dominates the film however, there are some heart felt lessons from Ride Along that can’t be ignored.  If you like this sort of thing or even if you’re a fan of Kevin Hart, see Ride Along which is now on DVD.  It’s not bad, just not my cup of tea.  I understand a sequel is in the works (Ride Along 2) which is scheduled to be released some time in 2016.
