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

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.

[It's] silly and unsophisticated but it does have enough cute gags to be agreeably amusing. Hart, who screams like a little girl, makes for funny, likeable company.

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.

It's fast, loud and silly with some good set-pieces and comic situations.

The most truthful answer is friendly but unexciting: They're OK. They're pretty good.

Hart's manic comic invention and textured persona elevates it somewhere beyond the level of pleasing mediocrity onto the slightly more distinguished realm of the agreeable-enough time waster.

Since the film's largely schematic subplot about Serbian gunrunners can't manage much in the way of originality, it's fortunate that Story knows his way around a comedy.

The action serves as a framework to Hart's shtick, the mannequin on which his routine hangs. It's a solid, if familiar, structure in the vein of 48 Hrs.

Maybe my standards are lower in January, traditionally a month when movie studios are focused more on awards than promoting new product. But no, Kevin Hart's performance ... would be funny any time of year.
January 16, 2014
The plot twists are easily guessed, and the film goes on for one predicament too long, but there are some good laughs.
January 16, 2014
[Hart] gives Ride just enough buoyancy to keep it afloat, despite a story that would sink most performances.
January 16, 2014
A forum for Kevin Hart to be the best stand-up comedian he can be.
January 16, 2014
[Hart] at least ... gives a boost to the familiar buddy-cops formula of "Ride Along."
January 16, 2014
You might think of the movie as a long car trip you've taken many times before. The same old roadside attractions may not be exciting, but when you've got great company, who cares?
January 16, 2014
It doesn't reinvent the wheel and is fairly lightweight, but it features a steady stream of solid laughs and goes down easy.
January 16, 2014
You wouldn't go to "Ride Along" and expect the plot complexities of "The Usual Suspects."
