Watch: Hit The Streets With 4 Clips From 'Ride Along' Starring Kevin Hart & Ice Cube

The Playlist By Ben Brock | The Playlist January 7, 2014 at 11:02AM

As we look back on 2013's winners and losers, one to remember is Kevin Hart, whose stand-up-flick-with-a-bit-of-fiction-mixed-in “Kevin Hart: Let Me Explain” was a critical hit that became the 4th most successful stand-up film ever (he also starred in “Grudge Match," but never mind). Hart is kicking off 2014, meanwhile, with “Ride Along,” a cop comedy about a high-school security guard (Hart) being taken on a ride along by his prospective brother-in-law, who is an actual cop, played by everyone's favorite not-actual cop, Ice Cube. Cube's aim, of course, is to see if Hart is a good enough guy to marry his sister (Tika Sumpter), but the ride along turns out to be more testing than he really intends.

“Ride Along” is directed by Tim Story, whose unpredictable back catalog includes recent hit “Think Like A Man” and both of the last decade's highly questionable “Fantastic Four” movies. It's out on January 17th, which is pretty soon, but if you need to prep we've got you covered with some clips from the film. Check it out. [Flicks And Bits]
