Ride Along Reviews
December 20, 2020
Standard-format American cop comedy, where an intractable veteran (Ice Cube) is forced to suffer a day on the job in the company of his distractable brother-in-law-to-be (Kevin Hart).

The film's only joy, unless you actually enjoy Hart's mania, is watching master thespian Laurence Fishburne.

Moderately funny, "Ride Along" never progressing beyond its basic gag.
June 8, 2019
If your eardrums can take it, Ride Along is perfectly inoffensive, incredibly unrealistic, adequately paced, completely forgettable, and (somehow) a massive success Stateside.

When an unstoppable force meets an immovable object you get Ride Along, the seldomfunny buddy movie starring Kevin Hart and Ice Cube.
March 7, 2019
This is a film rife with buddy comedy/opposites collide/fish-out-of-water clichés that by now have been done to death and so fail to really register on any level let alone a comedy one.

This is a painfully predictable action comedy that wastes the talents of everyone involved.

There's nothing more painful to sit through than an unfunny comedy, and though Ride Along is far from the worst example of this it is excruciating at points.

This was made for those of you looking for a fun time at the theater, with a little action and belly laughs mixed in.

It brings a few genuinely amusing moments that entertain, but lacks the ammunition needed to keep the laughs going throughout.

Ride Along will at the very least entertain despite any inherent contrivances.

The movie misses the opportunity to exploit the comedic chemistry between it's leads. [Full review in Spanish]

[Leads] off with the most poorly shot and edited chase scene in recent memory... so spatially confusing that it might as well have been shot through a kaleidoscope.
July 14, 2015
The movie isn't loose enough to let Kevin Hart run wild with sustained riffs; he's trapped inside the stodgy, stifling structure.
October 10, 2014
( ... ) even with four scriptwriters on the case it's still full of the usual stereotypes and lazy, bad-boy clichs - all glued together with a rather bombastic score.
September 22, 2014
Nothing in the movie makes sense, but I prefer to think that "Ride Along" is just a badly told joke, rather than an insult to its audience.
August 11, 2014
Just because I laughed doesn't mean Ride Along is a good movie.
May 28, 2014
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.
