‘Ride Along’ Trailer: Kevin Hart and Ice Cube Go on One Crazy Ride
Yahoo! has debuted the trailer for ‘Ride Along,’ the new comedy from the director and producer of ‘Think Like a Man.’ The film pairs the comedy duo of Kevin Hart and Ice Cube as two mismatched guys — a cop and his sister’s boyfriend — as they go on a crazy 24-hour ride along through the streets of Atlanta. Ice Cube, who also starred in ’21 Jump Street,’ plays the role of the cop — obviously — while Hart is his foil, a big-mouthed rookie desperate to prove his worth.
The official synopsis:
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.
‘Ride Along’ also stars John Leguizamo and Laurence Fishburne, and hits theaters on January 17, 2014.
