For the past two years, fast-talking, high school security guard Ben Barber has been trying to prove himself to his future brother-in-law Atlanta police detective James Payton that he is more than a video game junkie, worthy of dating and marrying James’ baby sister Angela. When Ben finally gets accepted into the police academy, James invites him on a ride-along to terrify him and also to see if he has what it takes to be the husband that Angela deserves. On a 24-hour patrol through the mean streets of Atlanta, they soon find themselves on a real case. If James’ new rookie partner’s rapid-fire mouth and the speeding bullets do not send them both to the morgue, James may finally have a chance to catch the most notorious criminal in Atlanta.

DVD and Blu-ray special features include a gag reel, feature commentary with director Tim Story and two featurettes, “It Was A Good Day: On the Set of Ride Along” and “Atlanta - The Character.” Exclusive to Blu-ray are deleted scenes, an alternate ending, an alternate take and four more featurettes: “Kev & Cube’s Wild Ride,” “An Explosive Ride,” “You Gonna Learn Today” and “Anatomy of the Big Blast.”
