March 6, 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.
Full Review | Original Score: 5.5/10
August 14, 2018
It brings a few genuinely amusing moments that entertain, but lacks the ammunition needed to keep the laughs going throughout.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5

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.

The movie isn't loose enough to let Kevin Hart run wild with sustained riffs; he's trapped inside the stodgy, stifling structure.

( ... ) even with four scriptwriters on the case it's still full of the usual stereotypes and lazy, bad-boy clichés - all glued together with a rather bombastic score.

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.

Just because I laughed doesn't mean Ride Along is a good movie.

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.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4

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.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
March 21, 2014
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.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5

The paucity of buddy comedies within contemporary multiplexes makes Ride Along's massive failure especially disappointing...
Full Review | Original Score: 1/4
March 16, 2014
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
