Buckle Up for The Year’s #1 Comedy Starring

Ice Cube and Kevin Hart











Universal City, California, February 18, 2014 – In the biggest original-comedy opening since Ted, a seasoned police detective takes his fast-talking brother-in-law-to-be on the ride of a lifetime. Ride Along will be available on Blu-ray™ Combo Pack, including Blu-ray, DVD and Digital HD with UltraViolet and On Demand on April 15, 2014, from Universal Studios Home Entertainment.  This film will also be available on Digital HD two weeks early on April 1, 2014.  An all-new comedy from director Tim Story (Think Like a Man, Fantastic Four, Barbershop), Ride Along stars actor and recording artist Ice Cube (Barber Shop21 Jump Street) and actor and comedian Kevin Hart (Think Like a Man, Kevin Hart: Let Me Explain) in a film that Scott Bowles of USA Today calls “downright hilarious!”

The film also features hysterical performances from Tika Sumpter (Tyler Perry’s A Madea Christmas, “The Have and Have Nots”), John Leguizamo (Kick-Ass 2The Lincoln Lawyer), Bryan Callen (The Hangover, Warrior), Bruce McGill (Lincoln, Collateral), and Laurence Fishburne (Man of SteelThe Matrix). Hailed as “absolutely the funniest comedy in years” by Mark S. Allen, CBS-TV, the Ride Along Blu-ray™  Combo Pack and iTunes Extra feature an exclusive, never-before-seen alternate ending and both the Digital HD and VOD releases will include an outrageous gag reel. 

Both the Blu-ray Combo Pack and DVD include feature commentary by the director, plus a behind-the-scenes documentary chronicling the making of the film and a gag reel. The Blu-ray Combo Pack also contains an alternate take, an alternate ending and behind-the-scenes footage and interviews with the stars and filmmakers.

        [*]Feature Commentary With Director Tim Story




        For the past two years, high school security guard Ben (Kevin Hart) has been trying to show decorated detective James (Ice Cube) that he’s more than just a video game junkie who’s unworthy of James’ sister. When Ben finally gets accepted into the police academy, James invites him on a ride-along designed to scare the hell out of him and ultimately demonstrate if Ben has what it takes to take care of his sister.  But when the wild night leads them to the most notorious criminal in the city, James will find that his new partner’s rapid-fire mouth is just as dangerous as the bullets speeding at it. Also starring John Leguizamo and Laurence Fishburne, Ride Along is an action-packed comedy with big thrills and even bigger laughs.
