New Ride Along Trailer Hits The Streets
Kevin Hart gets more than he bargained for

What happens when you cast Kevin Hart as a loud-mouthed school security guard together with hard-nosed cop Ice Cube? Well, the new action comedy Ride Along hopes it equals laughs. We’ve already had one trailer for the movie and now here comes the second.

Hart is Ben, a man more used to dealing with schoolyard squabbles than major crime. He also happens to be head over heels in love with Angela (Tika Sumpter), and intends to marry her, but there’s just one small problem: her big brother James (Cube).

Singularly unimpressed with the “Smurf” his sister has chosen to spend his life with, James decides that the only way Ben can prove himself worthy, now that he's joined the police academy, is to come on a ride-along. After the necessary preparation montage, the pair hits the streets.

Our worries that this one seems overly generic aren’t dispelled by the new promo: even with Hart’s live-wire delivery and Cube’s typically tough-guy stuff, we still feel like we’ve seen every joke before. The whole film will, like Ben, have to prove itself when it hits screens. That’s set for January 17 in the US, but there’s no sign of a UK date yet.
