The Kevin Hart Ride Along movie is one of the films the comedian has in store for 2014. Kevin Hart is getting the chance to live out his dreams as the comedian has taken his career to a whole new level. Aside from the controversy he has sparked with his comments about black women and his current relationship, Kevin is without a doubt one of comedy’s biggest stars at the moment. His pseudo reality TV show “Real Husbands of Hollywood” was a big hit on BET and is headed back to the network for another season and his “Let Me Explain” film won big at the box office which led the comedian to making history. Comedy is clearly Kevin’s first love but that hasn’t stopped him from continuing on with his acting career. In addition to starring in the “Think Like a Man” sequel, Kevin has teamed up with rapper/actor Ice Cube for new movie “Ride Along” which will be hitting theaters on January 17, 2014.
Here’s a synopsis of movie:
Kevin Hart and Ice Cube lead the lineup in Ride Along, the new film from the director of the blockbuster comedy Think Like a Man. When a fast-talking security guard joins his girlfriend’s brother—a hot-tempered cop—to patrol the streets of Atlanta, he gets entangled in the officer’s latest case. Now, in order to prove that he deserves his future bride, he must survive the most insane 24 hours of his life.
For the past two years, high-school rent-a-cop Ben (Hart) has been trying to show decorated APD detective Kurt (Cube) that he’s more than just a video-game junkie who’s unworthy of Kurt’s sister, Angela (Tika Sumpter). When Ben finally gets accepted into the academy, he thinks he’s earned the seasoned policeman’s respect and asks for his blessing to marry Angela.
Knowing that a ride along will demonstrate if Ben has what it takes to take care of his sister, Kurt invites him on a shift designed to scare the hell out of the trainee. But when the wild night leads them to the most notorious killer in the city, Kurt will find that his new partner’s rapid-fire mouth is just as dangerous as the bullets speeding at it.
John Leguizamo and Laurence Fishburne join the cast of the action-comedy directed by Tim Story. Ride Along is produced by Ice Cube, alongside Matt Alvarez (Barbershop), Will Packer (Think Like a Man) and Larry Brezner (Good Morning, Vietnam).

Another Madea movie? Please make it stop.
He has to keep striking while it’s hot. LOL.
Tyler Perry is going to milk Madea as much as possible huh? LOL.
Kevin is staying busy. I wonder how Mike Epps feels about him doing a movie with Ice Cube. I thought they weren’t cool and didn’t they Twitter beef recently?
I love me some Ice Cube. I might have to catch that movie.
I might see Kevin’s movie.
Another Madea movie…sigh…
You can’t be mad at Tyler for giving people what they want. All his Madea movies do well.
