Quotes

James Payton: I tried to help you! You came to me and said, give me a date and show me what you got. I gave you a date. It's not good enough. So the answer to your question is, no. I do not give you my blessing.
Ben Barber: I don't need your blessing. This ain't Afghanistan. I'm not about to buy her with a goat. That girl loves me, man. That girl all of this. Breathe it in, 'cause it's in your face. I'm taking care of her, not you.
James Payton: You?
Ben Barber: Me.
James Payton: You can't even take care of yourself. You wouldn't last one day out here.

Painful the first time
3 February 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I like Jason Mantzoukas work and it is a shame to him involved in this. I can't blame him for getting a check. At its best, Ride Along is tolerable. Ride Along was only watchable due to the fact that I've enjoyed these actors in other movies. Kevin Hart is the sole actor to bring any humor out of the script, but given the flat performance of Ice Cube, Lawrence Fishburne and the rest of the cast, I just can't say that Hart's part is enough reason to watch. Also, plot points are often introduced to soon be abandoned for the next minor plot point.Ride Along tries to be a comic version of "Training Day," only there's nothing in it as funny as Denzel razzing Ethan. There's nothing much funny in it at all. At its worst, it borders on insulting. A collection of moldy gags that director Tim Story tries to polish.
