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.

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.

( ... ) 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.

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.

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.
April 21, 2014
How much you enjoy it will depend heavily on how much you enjoy Hart's manic energy and self-deprecating jokes.
March 26, 2014
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.
March 21, 2014
There are a few laughs, but not enough.
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.
March 18, 2014
The paucity of buddy comedies within contemporary multiplexes makes Ride Along's massive failure especially disappointing...
March 8, 2014
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.
March 2, 2014
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.
