As we recently reported, Kevin Hart and Ice Cube have teamed up for a new movie, and by the looks of the first trailer we saw several weeks ago, the film should be hilarious. The movie follows Kevin Hart’s character as he tries to convince Ice Cube’s character that he is good enough to become his sister’s husband. The official synopsis for the film is as follows:
Kevin Hart and Ice Cube lead the lineup in Ride Along, the new film from the director and the producer of the blockbuster comedy Think Like a Man. When a fast-talking guy 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 security guard Ben (Hart) has been trying to show decorated APD detective James (Cube) that he’s more than just a video-game junkie who’s unworthy of James’ 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, James 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 criminal in the city, James 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 Will Packer (Think Like a Man), alongside Ice Cube, Matt Alvarez (Barbershop) and Larry Brezner (Good Morning, Vietnam).
Check out the new trailer below:
The Univesial Pictures film is set to hit theaters on January 17.
Kevin Hart is not funny to me.
Ice Cube is STILL fine. Lol.
I’ll go see this for Ice Cube.
I think I’ll see this. Kevin isn’t all that funny in his movies though.
This is a movie you wait to watch on DVD when you have nothing else to watch and are bored.
They should have gotten Katt Williams instead.
I actually would like to see this, it looks funny
This looks like it could be decent.
Kevin Hart tries too hard. Ugh.
