And the Oscar Goes To… Not a Clue

Ride Along

Ride Along poster - Ride AlongRide Along is a typical, formulaic, middle-of-the-road January offering. Not exactly a must see, but harmless entertainment. A sort of Beverly Hills Cop light. In Atlanta. Kevin Hart plays Ben, a fast-talking high-school security guard and video-game junkie with aspirations to join the police academy. But his potential future brother-in-law (Ice Cube), a hot-tempered Atlanta detective, doesn’t think Ben has what it takes to be a cop, or to marry his sister Angela (Tika Sumpter). So he takes Ben on a ride-along that’s essentially been ‘fixed’ to include only the most annoying and obnoxious runs. Of course, the plan goes awry and comedy and ‘drama’ ensue.

You don’t have to be a detective to figure out where this one is going. You’ve seen it all before – sometimes better, sometimes worse.

It’ll make for a fine rental, matinee or airplane flick. No need to see it in the theater, but if you do, there’s no real harm in tagging along for this Ride Along.
