Two struggling pals dress as police officers for a costume party and become neighborhood sensations. But when these newly-minted "heroes" get tangled in a real life web of mobsters and dirty detectives, they must put their fake badges on the line.
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
When talking about the criminal Omar, Ben asks if he has a scar on his face. This is most likely a reference to Omar Little, a popular criminal from the HBO show The Wire (2002), who had a scar across his face. See more »
At the end, in the BBQ party scene, when Ben asks James for his WiFi password, Ben suggests the password "bike." This cannot be used for a WiFi network as the minimum password length is 8 characters. See more »

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 »
I love Kevin Hart don't get me wrong. His stand up is hilarious and I also love Ice Cube's movies AND the two of them have great chemistry on screen and all but....it wasn't that funny. This movie had its' funny parts but the problem is most of them you already saw on the preview. This won't go on my list of funniest movies I've ever seen but it had decent action and decent humor. It had a little twist toward the end but thinking of the premise movies like Meet the Parents were funnier or Twenty one jump street or The Heat but what can I say it was filmed well and the two of them together provided enough entertainment so the film is worth a watch.
