Ben must prove he is good enough to date cop James' sister. By doing this he goes on a "Ride Along" to show that he is not weak and he will do whatever it takes to get James' approval but along the way runs into a few obstacles that he has to overcome in a very funny way.Written by
While James' car is an unmarked police car, throughout the film, James never turns on any siren or lights (however Ben attempts to). See more »
The Dodge's headlights are initial tinted black and then later on they are clear. See more »
Aw, damn, it's Sir Scream-a-Lot.
I was responding to a hostile situation, James. I have no shame in that. You call for backup when there's a hostile situation.
That wasn't calling for backup. That was a high-pitched scream, and you pushed my sister in the way.
I pushed your sister out of harm's way. You shined the light at us, James.

There's a scene halfway through the end credits: During a barbecue, James tries to stop Ben from turning on the grill (to avoid what happened the last time). See more »
When you think of Ice Cube you think of the hardcore rapper from NWA, the gangster persona, not complex actor. Yet since becoming an actor Ice Cube; real name (O'Shea Jackson), has developed himself into quite the character actor. The comedic prescence of Kevin Hart and this budding police comedy brings the movie full tilt. There is a great story line that suggests looking for comfort and approval betweent Hart's character and Cube's. There are hilarious comments throughout the film and the writing was quite original. This is a great movie with strength in the plot, the characters and just fun throughout. There is no doubt I would highly recommend this to everyone. Kevin Hart is becoming the fast uprising comedic actor of late.
