Hart’s clowning here is that rare case where louder is, in fact, funnier.

Ride Along is a strong recommend when Hart is talking, but merely a mediocre attempt at a movie when he’s not.

Hart is much like Murphy: fast-talking, mischievous and irresistible. He's so confident and good-natured that we see how Angela fell for her pint-sized slacker.

Turns out to be something like a comic riff on "Training Day." Leaning more toward Hart's brand of slightly raunchy humor rather than Ice Cube's equally popular family-friendly fare, the PG-13 film exhibits broad appeal.

Hart's exasperated dervish shtick has moments of real live-wire anarchy, including one priceless gag at a firing range. Will it be enough to make Hart a household name? Maybe. But both he and his fans deserve better.

A lazy and listless buddy-cop action-comedy that fades from memory as quickly as its generic title.

Ride Along sabotages itself, although I suppose that doesn’t really matter — there are already plans in the works for Ride Along 2.

At its best, Ride Along is tolerable. At its worst, it borders on insulting.

Time and again, Ride Along comes up with a clichéd setup — and then blows the payoff.

Forget going soft — Ride Along proves Ice Cube's got bigger image problems than kiddie movies and Coors Light commercials.
