Ride Along is a 2014 American action-comedy movie directed by Tim Story, starring Ice Cube, Kevin Hart, and Tika Sumpter. The movie is about a fast-talking security guard named Ben Barber (Kevin Hart) who wants to marry his girlfriend, Angela Payton (Tika Sumpter), but her older brother, James (Ice Cube), is a tough cop who doesn't think Ben is good enough for her.

When James invites Ben on a ride-along to prove himself, Ben sees it as an opportunity to get James' approval and show him he's worthy of Angela's love. However, the duo quickly find themselves in over their heads when they stumble upon a high-profile case involving a dangerous gang leader named Omar (Laurence Fishburne).

As Ben tries to impress James, he unintentionally gets them both into even more trouble. The two must work together to take down Omar and his gang, all while James attempts to teach Ben the ropes of being a police officer.

The movie is filled with action-packed scenes, hilarious moments, and great chemistry between the characters. Kevin Hart delivers his signature brand of comedy, while Ice Cube brings his trademark tough-guy persona to the role of James. Tika Sumpter also shines as Angela, providing a strong love interest for Ben and a supportive sister to James.

The movie's plot is not just about getting James' approval for Ben to marry Angela, but also about the growth of their relationship, from being complete strangers to partners in crime.

The cast also includes John Leguizamo as a low-level crook and Bryan Callen as a hacker who help Ben and James take down Omar.

Ride Along received mixed reviews from critics but was a box office success, grossing over $154 million worldwide. The success of the movie led to a sequel, Ride Along 2, which was released in 2016.

Overall, Ride Along is an entertaining movie that combines action and comedy with a heartwarming storyline about family and relationships. Ice Cube and Kevin Hart's comedic chemistry is the highlight of the movie, and the supporting cast adds to the fun.

Ride Along is a 2014 action movie. It has received mostly poor reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 6.1 and a MetaScore of 41.
