Full trailer for Ride Along starring Kevin Hart and Ice Cube looks surprisingly funny

12.20.2013

I've got to be honest, Ice Cube comedies are not my thing. Nothing against the guy, but the last movie I enjoyed him in was FRIDAY, which I consider a classic (shit, that might be the last time I enjoyed Chris Tucker in a movie as well). Since then, he's been on a bit of an Adam Sandler-esque journey, which may yield a lot of money, but not much in the way of accolades. However, having comedian Kevin Hart in your action/comedy flick isn't a bad start and that's the sell of RIDE ALONG. I fully expected to remain stone-faced throughout the trailer, but Hart's antics actually got some audible laughs and left me with a better impression of the film. Let's see if it does the same for you.

I'm more of a shotgun specialist:

Here's the synopsis:

Fast-talking security guard Ben joins his cop brother-in-law James on a 24-hour patrol of Atlanta in order to prove himself worthy of marrying Angela, James' sister.

I mean, let's face it, this is junk food comedy, but every now and again we crave some junk food, am I right? Some of it is better than others, though, and this looks to be ripe with a few good laughs, even if it's just Hart doing his schtick. It may not be BAD BOYS, but it still looks like a decent enough romp on a slow movie weekend. Or Netflix. Choice is yours.

RIDE ALONG hits theaters on January 17, 2014.

Hart is a poor man's Tucker

I don't hate Hart, but his over-the-top schtick wears on me quickly. It is funny at times. I do laugh, but I find myself laughing in spite of my overall opinion on him. Ride Along will def. be an across the board hit, but I know if I find myself in the theaters for this movie, it'll feel like I am slumming it.

I Would've Watched This Film In Theaters If...

... it had been rated "R." "PG-13" Kevin Hart and Ice Cube are not worth going out to see. Though, their skit on Conan recently was pretty hilarious. Hmmmm...

Eh

I think you nailed it with junk food comedy. Every once in a while, I can't pick something, and this is the type of thing that bubbles up if I'm not going to pull a rewatch. I can't say it looks good - but it looks suitable. I'd rather watch this than overhyped comedies like Hangover sequels.
Cube must be psyched to find a co-star that makes him look tall. And I will say Chris Tucker was pretty good in Silver Linings Playbook.

Do you mean the last time you found Cube great as a leading man?

Because Ice Cube was one of the best parts in 21 Jump Street.
