Kevin Hart plays a security guard geek who finds it hard to pull himself away from his video game in the morning to go work at the high school.
Ice Cube plays a policeman who not only lives Hart’s Ben Barber’s dream life, but also is the brother of Barber’s girlfriend.
So the little man tries to prove to the big man that he’s worthy. Of so much. His acceptance into the Atlanta police academy. Of his sister’s hand in marriage. Of breathing the same air.
“Ride Along” was seriously tedious at the start.
Then it became way better.
