Ride Along is not a film made with a higher purpose. It made me chuckle a few times and was perfectly harmless. It’s aim was to be mildly entertaining, a nice distraction for a couple of hours, and it succeeded.
Hart and Cube take on their usual roles with gusto and make for a decent pairing. It’s all summed up by the fact that I remember finding it enjoyable enough but in years to come I’ll be able to tell you little about it.
I’m not damning it with feint praise. Most films are average, and Ride Along is too.
