The beginning of the film was great. I loved the text overlays and transitions. The editor’s really took their time to make the introduction of the cast and crew impressive. The film was shot very pro and was damn funny. Ice cube and Keven heart were a good one two punch of comedy. Ice Cube played a good hot heated rule breaking police officer and and Kevin Hart was just what you would expect…. Hella funny. I give Ride Along (2014) a solid 3.75 stars.
