Ride Along Reviews

Bill Clark

Director Tim Story puts a competent visual polish on Ride Along, but it's simply not funny or action-packed enough to warrant a recommendation.

How much you enjoy it will depend heavily on how much you enjoy Hart's manic energy and self-deprecating jokes.

Sydney Morning Herald

What's in the foreground is Kevin Hart's boyish desires and Ice Cube's gruff response. They're the Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers of bickering.

There are a few laughs, but not enough.

It's a typically absurd, exaggerated spiel but with a grim undertone that resonates later on, so that Ben's desperate efforts to make something of himself seem not entirely a laughing matter.

Reel Film Reviews

The paucity of buddy comedies within contemporary multiplexes makes Ride Along's massive failure especially disappointing...

Hey, if you want to see Kevin Hart screeching like a mad-man and late-period Ice Cube gleefully giving shout-outs to his song titles through dialogue (as I often do), this is the place to get it.

An undemanding fun ride, ideal accompaniment to popcorn

Ride Alone is ultimately one joke stretched out into feature length form, and though tedious at times, fortunately for Story, that one joke happens to be a funny one.

Movie Talk

The crime plot is lazily predictable, but the comedy is barely any better. Cube plays the straight man to Hart's manic motor mouth, but anyone who isn't already a fan will probably find his comic shtick more irritating than amusing.

Observer [UK]

An action-comedy short on both action and comedy, this turgid dirge recycles all the usual mismatched cop-couple cliches (from 48 Hours to Cop Out) with dreary results.

Ride Along's fascinating on one level because there's absolutely nothing original about it.

As buddy movies go, this is strictly formulaic fare but it elicits a few laughs along the way thanks to the relentless goofing of Kevin Hart.

... the gags and one-liners just aren't as funny as they need to be.

The inappropriately namedTim Story looks to have grabbed his script from the "plot" section of the service station while racing to a meeting for which he had not properly prepared.

If you're in the mood for some undemanding action entertainment, this routine buddy cop caper offers some cheap laughs.

This is London

Ice Cube is a man with two expressions, while Hart has become a ubiquitous presence.

Romantic chemistry is rare in the movies, comic chemistry rarer still, and sadly there isn't much on offer in this action buddy comedy.

Rich Cline

There's a decent premise to this action-comedy, but the filmmakers can't be bothered to put in the effort to actually make it funny or exciting.

Little White Lies

The impression is very much that director Tim Story has shaken down the genre for its most hackneyed ingredients and whisked them carelessly together.
