Movie Review: Ride Along **

movie ride along

Ride Along is a cop movie. A video game playing adult works as a security guard at a school and thinks he is ready to become a real policeman. He schedules a ride along with his girlfriend’s brother who happens to be a detective. These guys do not get along. The real cop wants to discourage the security guard’s pursuit in a law enforcement career and takes him on a ride-along designed to discourage his enlistment in the police academy. When the security guard finds out he is being set up to fail, he becomes adamant that no one will get the best of him and tries to turn the tables on the detective. A serious situation ensues with unexpected results.

A fun movie that is portrayed as a comedy drama. The drama is better than the comedy. The story is better than the jokes. Ice Cube and Kevin Hart do a good job with the script they are given. The movie is just alright. 2 out of 5 stars.
