Ride Along Reviews

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.

Ride Along's fascinating on one level because there's absolutely nothing original about it.
February 28, 2014
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.
February 28, 2014
... the gags and one-liners just aren't as funny as they need to be.
February 28, 2014
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.
February 28, 2014
If you're in the mood for some undemanding action entertainment, this routine buddy cop caper offers some cheap laughs.

Ice Cube is a man with two expressions, while Hart has become a ubiquitous presence.
February 27, 2014
Romantic chemistry is rare in the movies, comic chemistry rarer still, and sadly there isn't much on offer in this action buddy comedy.
February 27, 2014
The impression is very much that director Tim Story has shaken down the genre for its most hackneyed ingredients and whisked them carelessly together.
February 27, 2014
A butch and uncompromising assault of mediocrity and dj vu.
February 26, 2014
The plot is weak, the characterisation is inconsistent and it's nowhere near as funny as it thinks it is.
February 25, 2014
Ride Along is saddled with an uninvolving plot, and largely content to coast on cop-movie clichs.
February 24, 2014
Can you be physically assaulted by a comedy? Anything might seem possible after enduring Kevin Hart's jackhammer performance in this mismatched buddy-cop movie.
February 6, 2014
Despite a couple of legitimate laughs, it's largely unwatchable.
February 3, 2014
As a comedian [Hart] has been begging for Hollywood's attention for five years. He has it now, but you've got to believe he can do better than this.

If you've seen the trailer for Ride Along, then rest assured, you don't need to see the rest.
January 31, 2014
... even by the checkered standards of the buddy-cop comedy tradition, this low-brow effort is so ridiculously incoherent that it becomes distracting.
January 29, 2014
Because of his brilliant standup comedy, I find myself rooting for Hart. I hope he will have the chance to star in a film that is worthy of him. 'Ride Along' isn't that opportunity.
