Fuck Tha Police co-writer Ice Cube & uber-zippy pint-sized comedian Kevin Hart play a cop & a cop-to-be in director Tim Story's bickering buddy action/comedy Ride Along.
Atlanta Police Academy newbie Hart rides along with gruff detective Cube in order to prove that he is worthy of marrying the hard-assed cop's younger sister.  Wacky hijinks ensue and everything falls in place in the end.
Based on the late-night talk show interviews I saw with these guys I loved their comedic chemistry so I figured this flick would be good for a few laughs.  Technically it offers a few mild belly laughs but nothing worth noting.  In fact, it's kind of a major disappointment, especially when you weren't asking for much in the first place.

2 Black Hammers out of 5

I imagine the only solution is to bring Conan in for 3...

I rewatched both Conan segments and its' outtakes after watching the 2nd film.

I'd love it if those 3 did regular segments together...
...even a 1/2 hour show would be ideal.

The 2nd film is quite a bit better and light years funnier.
I'll have it's Nut up in a few days I hope.

Same score. It was weak. It made Rush Hour seem well-written.
