Ride Along (2014)

Director: Tim Story

Stars: Ice Cube, Kevin Hart, Tika Sumpter, John Leguizamo, Bruce McGill, Laurence Fishburne

Ben Barber is a high school security guard that just got accepted to the police academy. His girlfriend's brother, James, is the top cop in Atlanta, and he hates Ben. James agrees to give Ben a 24 hour ride along to scare him out of wanting to be a cop, but Ben catches on to James' plan.

This was trying to be the anti-cop buddy movie with both of the characters fighting and yelling at one another. It got really close to it. This movie is so predictable that it is not even funny. You can guess what is going to happen at every moment. This movie took almost not thought at all to make. I have seen better cop buddy movies in my days. This was one of the worse out there. It relied on Hart high pitched screams and running around. Ice Cube playing the whole "I hate this" role. It was just kind of tired. It just has been done too many times.

The cast in the movie was great, and the look and production of the movie was there. It was just a played out movie. It need something more than just the same old plain jokes and car crashes. It was worth watching once, but I see no reason at all to watch it again. Enjoy.
