I swear all the funny scenes were in the trailer, it was funny in some scenes but Ice Cube is hit or miss in his methods to be funny or play straight. Kevin… More

Predictable in all the worst ways, "Ride Along" stars Kevin Hart and Ice Cube and their chemistry is all that really holds this film together. Kevin… More
