Ride Along: What You Need To Know

Ride Along, the new knockabout comedy, which stars Kevin Hart and Ice Cube, is released on DVD and Blu-Ray on Monday (June 30th). It slayed the box office on release, netting over $150 million in grosses, here’s what you need to know about it..

 

What’s the plot?

The set-up is as follows: Ben is a jumpy, fast-talking high school security guard who is about to ask his girlfriend Angela to marry him. Sadly, before he can, Angela insists that he get the blessing of her brother, badass, name-taking cop James. When Ben asks James, he responds by telling him that he needs to know he’s worthy of his sister, and that means he must take him out for a day’s patrol on the streets of Atlanta.

 

Who’s in it?

Kevin Hart stars as the skittish Ben with Ice Cube taking his Jump Street persona one step further as ass-kicking cop James. There’s a solid supporting cast too, with John Leguizamo, Bruce McGill and Laurence Fishburne also on-board.

 

Does it deliver?

It’s not the finest comedy you’ll see this year, but it’s got some great set pieces and the chemistry between Hart and Ice Cube is evident for all to see. A little throwaway, but with plenty of good gags in there.

 

Ride Along is released on DVD and Blu-Ray on Monday (June 30th).
