Rizzoli & Isles: Season Five Ratings

9 December 2014 1:49 PM, PST | TVSeriesFinale.com | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

Debuting in 2010, Rizzoli & Isles has been TNT's most-watched scripted series and, last season, viewership grew. Will the ratings continue to climb or start to fall? Is a sixth season essentially guaranteed? Could this show possibly be cancelled anytime soon? Stay tuned!

Rizzoli & Isles revolves around the unlikely but very effective partnership of police detective Jane Rizzoli (Angie Harmon) and medical examiner Doctor Maura Isles (Sasha Alexander). Co-starring on the series are Jordan Bridges, Bruce McGill, Lorraine Bracco, and Brian Goodman.

The ratings are typically the best indication of a show's chances of staying on the air. The higher the ratings, the better the chances for survival. This chart will be updated as new ratings data becomes available.

12/9 update: The series has been renewed for a sixth season for Summer 2015.

DVD Review – Ride Along (2014)

30 June 2014 5:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Ride Along, 2014.

Directed by Tim Story.

Starring Ice Cube, Kevin Hart, Tika Sumpter, John Leguizamo, Bruce McGill and Laurence Fishburne.

Synopsis:

Security guard Ben must prove himself to his girlfriend’s brother, top cop James. He rides along James on a 24-hour patrol of Atlanta.

Buddy cop films have been hit or miss, going all the way back to the 80′s where we saw some of the very best of the genre. In recent years there haven’t been many, mostly because they end up being quite bad like Kevin Smith’s Cop Out. But every once in a while we get a good buddy cop film like 21 Jump Street or The Heat. Sadly, the pairing of Kevin Hart and Ice Cube falls into the miss part of the genre with Ride Along.

Kevin Hart stars as Ben, a security guard who dreams of being a police officer. He spends »

Ride Along DVD Review

24 June 2014 3:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Director: Tim Story

Starring: Ice Cube, Kevin Hart, John Leguizamo, Bruce McGill, Tika Sumpter, Bryan Callen, Laurence Fishburne, Dragos Bucur, Gary Owen,

 Running Time: 99 minutes

Certificate: 12

Searching approval from the family of significant others; oh how this simple idea has spawned multiple comedies. Whether it be the more traditional approach of meeting the parents, or a film such as Ride Along that looks at gaining the blessing of over protective siblings, it’s something that we believe we can all relate to, while still exaggerating events for comedic effect. Unfortunately, as demonstrated here, the ideas and execution are becoming tired, even when pairing it with an equally rundown genre of the buddy cop variety.

Kevin Hart plays Ben Barber, a young school security guard who has just been accepted into the police academy. With this news he intends to propose to his girlfriend, Angela (Sumpter), but must first win the »

‘Ride Along’ Blu-ray Review

24 June 2014 1:01 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Ice Cube, Kevin Hart, Tika SumpterBruce McGill, Bryan Callen, Laurence Fishburne, Dragos Bucur, Gary Owen, Jacob Latimore, Jay Pharoah, Benjamin Flores Jr. | Written by Greg Coolidge, Jason Mantzoukas, Phil Hay, Matt Manfredi | Directed by Tim Story

As someone who absolutely adored the Ice Cube buddy cop comedy All About the Benjamins I was really looking forward to Cube’s latest buddy comedy Ride Along, especially given that it also stars man of the moment Kevin Hart, whose career is currently in take off. But then (at least here in the UK) All About the Benjamins was something of an underrated gem just waiting to be discovered by those who enjoy the genre; but with this film hitting the top of the Us box office it brings with it a ton of hype for its UK debut, which I had to wonder if it could ever live up to… »

The Best Movie Revenge Missions

2 June 2014 4:00 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

It is a dish best served cold, so they say. It is also, at least as far as cinema is concerned, less straight-forward than you might think. Someone might be on a mission and it might seem to be revenge-like, but if it turns into a rescue, does that disqualify it?

What if there is a revenge element to an otherwise-themed film? Take Taken, if you will. He wants his daughter back and is prepared to use a particular set of skills to do so, but he clearly wants some measure of revenge on the kidnappers as well. What are we to do? We could debate such questions endlessly.

With this week’s release of In The Blood , Haywire’s Gina Carano is going to have at those she holds responsible for her husband’s disappearance. So, instead of nit-picking, let’s visit some of the best revenge missions that »

'Timecop' Reboot Gets 'Journey 2' Writers Brian and Mark Gunn

9 April 2014 5:39 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Brian Gunn and Mark Gunn have signed on to write the screenplay for Universal Pictures' Timecop reboot, nearly one year after the project was first announced.

Jean-Claude Van Damme starred in the original Timecop, which was released in 1994, centering on a law enforcement agency that regulates time travel. The actor portrayed an officer who tangles with a corrupt politician (Ron Silver), trying to use time travel to further his career. Mia Sara, Bruce McGill and Gloria Reuben co-starred in the film.

The reboot is said to be more of a "gritty and grounded" crime tale, with the sci-fi elements pushed to the background. The project has drawn comparisons to Rian Johnson's 2012 time travel feature Looper, although this reboot will be much larger in scale. The story debuted as a three-part tale in the Dark Horse Comics anthology series, which spawned the original Timecop, a short-lived 1997 Timecop TV series, »

Ride Along review

Review Luke Savage 28 Feb 2014 - 07:35

Ice Cube and Kevin Hart star in the big Us comedy hit Ride Along. So: is it any good?

Three things you should know about Ride Along: it’s got someone who calls himself ‘Lil P-Nut’ listed amongst its cast; Ice Cube’s funniest moment involves his straight-faced reading of the line ‘Thanks Assface’; and Laurence Fishburne turns up at one point, doing a pretty good impersonation of Laurence Fishburne slumming it.

If you’re happy with all that, then Ride Along is for you.  If you’re wavering, let me try a pitch to sum up the film’s deft play with narrative and genre convention.  Here goes: ‘Kevin Hart and Ice Cube go on a ride along’.  No?  Come on …

To be fair, Ride Along doesn’t pretend to have any ambition beyond what its trailer has already shown us.  Ice Cube is a serious cop. »

Ride Along Review

27 February 2014 6:38 PM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Director: Tim Story.

Starring: Ice Cube, Kevin Hart, Tika SumpterJohn Leguizamo, Bruce McGill, Bryan CallenLaurence Fishburne.

Running Time: 99 minutes.

Certificate: 15.

Synopsis: Ben (Kevin Hart) is a lowly High School Security Guard who happens to be engaged to the girl of his dreams. Unfortunately, her tough, no-nonsense cop brother James (Ice Cube) doesn’t approve. Hoping to impress his future brother-in-law and earn his respect, Ben accompanies him on a police ride around Atlanta, leading to all manner of explosive events.

Once in a blue moon, there comes along a film that perplexingly rides high and becomes a box office success, despite not being very good. Last month, Ride Along took the Us Box Office by storm, earning dollar after million-dollar whilst spending three glorious weeks in the top spot. So the fact that it’s entirely soulless, unoriginal and incredibly unfunny is quite a disappointment, especially for us poor British folk, »

‘Ride Along’ Sequel Is Pulling In

18 February 2014 10:02 PM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Ice Cube and Kevin Hart’s comedy doesn’t hit the UK until 28th February, but since it’s already made $117 million in the Us and is still in the Top 10 at the box-office, a sequel has been announced. Director and writers are returning in the form of Tim Story, Phil Hay and Matt Manfredi ready for a June/July start. As the script is finalised, so are contracts with Cube and Hart, who can probably expect some big numbers to return so quickly.

Word on the street is that the sequel will be more multicultural in order to appeal to other demographics, as well as incorporating even more action. Story and Hart have recently finished work on Think Like A Man, while another Hart release, About Last Night is currently sitting at number 2 at the Us box-office. I’m pretty excited to see Ride Along, as the trailer made »

Ice Cube and Kevin Hart Return for Ride Along 2

18 February 2014 1:20 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Following the success of their hit comedy Ride Along, which has earned just over $120 million worldwide since its release last month, Universal Pictures is bringing back Ice Cube and Kevin Hart for Ride Along 2.

The original creative team from Ride Along is back for the sequel as well, with Tim Story directing from a script by Phil Hay and Matt Manfredi. William Packer is also returning to produce, with the studio eyeing a late June/early July production start for the follow-up. No story details have been released, but there is talk that the plot will have a more multi-cultural appeal to expand the comedy's reach to other parts of the world. While the original Ride Along has done quite well domestically, earning $117.2 million, it has only made $3.4 million from six international territories, although the comedy will be expanding to more countries in the near future.

New 'Ride Along' movie delivered great comedy,action & more. Universal Pictures released their new comedy flick, "Ride Along" into theaters this weekend.

Film Review: Ride Along

16 January 2014 12:35 PM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

First things first, let’s tackle the obvious. Yes, you know exactly what this movie is. You know the dynamic. You likely know what kinds of twists it will take. You can also probably accurately predict the way it all turns out. The question, when it comes to a movie that wears its Hollywood formula so blatantly on its sleeve, is whether or not it brings anything new to the table, or if it at least is able to teach some new tricks to an old dog. The answer to that question, when it comes to Ride Along, is a resounding “No.” However, that doesn’t mean that there isn’t some fun to be had here.

Ride Along is a buddy-cop action comedy, in the tradition 48 Hours, Rush Hour, and Lethal Weapon. You know the routine: Two unlikely characters have to join forces, one is a gruff no-nonsense type, »

'Ride Along' (2013) Movie Review

16 January 2014 9:30 AM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Let's get one thing out of the way first, Kevin Hart is hilarious. Even in a toned down, third-rate, PG-13 buddy comedy like Ride Along he's hilarious. However, when I see it took four people -- Greg Coolidge, Jason Mantzoukas, Phil Hay and Matt Manfredi -- to write a screenplay that could just as easily be outlined on a napkin before handed over to Hart while telling him to improvise the rest frustrates me. Of that lot only Mantazoukas has anything respectable to his credit while Hay and Manfredi have brought us the likes of R.I.P.D., Clash of the Titans and Aeon Flux. Suffice to say, without Hart, Ride Along would have been unwatchable. In the opening minutes we meet Ice Cube as hard-boiled detective James Payton, working undercover, attempting to learn the identity of some anonymous villain named Omar. Things go bad, the bad guys find out he's a »

Review: 'Ride Along' Starring Ice Cube And Kevin Hart

15 January 2014 9:10 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Say this for “Ride Along,” this Friday’s big action buddy comedy: the two leads are black and its villains are a mixture of black, white and Hispanic. At no point during the film does it ever feel like tokenism or pandering, just an attempt, finally, at recreating an honest, plausible cultural makeup. The story takes place in a relatively generic Atlanta, but the streets have a bit of an edge to them: when one character insults another by guessing they’re from Decatur, there’s no attempt to explain the putdown to the non-locals in the audience, only attitude. It’s unfortunate that the rest of Tim Story’s film feels so by-the-book. The picture opens with a bungled bust followed by a gratuitous chase scene, and when it ends with hero cop James (Ice Cube) being chastised by a gruff boss (Bruce McGill), the film assumes that you »
