Synopsis:
Kevin Hart and Ice Cube lead the lineup in Ride Along, the new film from the director and the producer of the blockbuster comedy Think Like a Man. 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.

Dove Worldview:
Kevin Hart plays Ben, a security guard at a school who longs to become a police officer. When he gets accepted to the police academy, his girlfriend reaches out to her detective brother in hopes that he will be of assistance. Her brother James (Ice Cube) doesn't like Ben much so he offers to take him on a "Ride Along" so he can see what goes into becoming a police officer. James has a few tricks up his sleeve and asks dispatch to give him all of the day's nuisance complaints, hoping that it will turn Ben off but the two wind up in the middle of a very real crime case.

The film is funny at times and has several slapstick moments but it is marred by frequent and foul language at every turn. Due to the extreme content and language we are not able to consider this a family film.
