Back in January 2014, a quirky little comedy called Ride Along, starring Ice Cube (22 Jump Street, Barbershop: The Next Cut ) and Kevin Hart (Get Hard, Central Intelligence ), came out of nowhere and quickly became box-office gold. The story was simple — a hardened Atlanta detective James Payton (Cube), is not too happy wi... Read More
