Ride Along

Rated PG-13 100 minutes 2014

A ball-busting Atlanta cop (Ice Cube) tries to intimidate his sister's goofy fiance (Kevin Hart), a security guard who dreams of joining the police force, by taking him along for a day of street patrol. This routine buddy picture offers plenty of instant gratification (Cube and Hart are easygoing screen presences, and many of their one-liners are funny) but shows little concern for characterization, storytelling, or even comic pacing. As a result, the jokes feel as if they're being fired into a void, and the slack action sequences fail to generate the slightest suspense. Tim Story (Barbershop, Fantastic Four) directed.
