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.

  1. I just watched another movie I could NOT get in to. My aunt and uncle had me watch it with them. I wanted to watch it before. But for some reason I could not get past a certain point. I would just turn it off. Yet. when we watched it with them I got past that part that made me turn it off. So I appreciate the heads up. The movie I couldn’t get past what I felt was tedium? The King’s Speech.
