Kevin Hart and Ice Cube star in this comedy involving a high school security guard named Ben (Hart), who tries to impress Detective James (Ice Cube) and convince him he is worthy of marrying James’ sister, Angela. The video game junkie and goofy character comes into his own as the unlikely hero during a ‘ride along’ in Detective James’ car.
The humorous Kevin Hart helps move this classic storyline of the underdog-coming-out-on-top along.
The camera work and visual effects are convincing, but that’s all there is – the plot is lazy and dull – this is definitely a DVD-only movie full of mindless entertainment about the guy who gets the girl. (LK)
