Chicago – Few figures have had less of an exciting domination of the world than Kevin Hart. In the past few years, the comedian has skyrocketed to leading fixture in the comedy scene, creating hit scripts out of films like “Think Like A Man” and “About Last Night,” while taking victory laps in his lacking stand-up features like “Kevin Hart: Let Me Explain”. The big problem is that these projects don’t justify his comic potential.

They don’t show, like his appearance in “The 40-Year-Old Virgin,” or his special “Seriously Funny,” why comedy benefits from having the hyperactive humor of Kevin Hart in its universe. Add another title to that list of disappointing successes with “Ride Along,” another box office hit (a sequel is due in January 2016), but one without a strong entertainment factor to really deserve it.

Rating: 2.0/5.0
