I’m a sucker for buddy cop films. It has been done so many times: Bad Boys, Rush Hour, National Security and 21 Jump Street (among so many others) and I love them all! So I’m pretty stoked to see the trailer for this new film “Ride Along” starring Ice Cube and Kevin Hart.
Check out the synopsis:
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.
And when you add the fact that another one of my favorite funny dudes, John Leguizamo also stars, how can you lose?! “Ride Along” hits theaters on January 17, 2014.
