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

Dec. 20, 2013by:

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.

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.

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.

Released during a little time of the year that studios like to call

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...

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.
