Hart takes viewers for a ride

The buddy-cop comedy “Ride Along” has one big thing going for it — or, more accurately, a little thing: comedian Kevin Hart. He plays Ben, a motor-mouthed gamer and high school security guard who wants to marry his girlfriend (Tika Sumpter), but needs to get approval from her prickly brother, James (Ice Cube). The two men got off on the wrong foot, but James, a police officer, tells Ben there’s one way he can prove himself: tag along during a day on the job. Predictably, the day doesn’t unfold as heroically as Ben hopes. The DVD and Blu-ray (Universal, $30-$35) include commentary, a gag reel and a backstage visit with Hart and Ice Cube.
