Ride Along

Synopsis: For two years, security guard Ben (Kevin Hart) has tried to convince James (Ice Cube), a veteran cop, that he is worthy of James' sister, Angela. When Ben is finally accepted into the police academy, James decides to test his mettle by inviting him along on a shift deliberately designed to scare the trainee. However, events take an unexpected turn when their wild night leads to Atlanta's most-notorious criminal and Ben's rapid-fire mouth proves as dangerous as the bullets whizzing by them.

About 10 minutes passed before everyone had arrived. The date on

the front board reads September 1st. Mr. Broman is at the head of

the classroom and quiets everyone up.

Mr. Broman:

Welcome to Emergency Medical Technician

Basic class. This is my 10th year

teaching this class, and so far it has

been a success. There are 21 of you

guys and girls to start this year. That

number is going to drop, a lot, in the

coming weeks. Some of you won’t be able

to handle the work load. Some of you

won’t be physically handle the demands,

and some of you will have your

priorities in different places. Look at

what is in front of you, on your desk.

We will go through all of that, and

most of it will have to be memorized.

Now then, without further ado, let’s



Kevin and Chloe are in Chloe’s bedroom, not very teenage girl-

like, with their books and equipment from the day spread all

over the floor.


Jesus Christ! This is like 1500 pages

worth of material that we will have to

know for our state boards in May. Mr.

Broman wasn’t kidding at orientation

when he said say goodbye to your social



Now, I do believe that Kevin Starr is

stressed. This is a sight that we may

never see again.


Oh haha you smartass. We have to get

through 165 hours of in class

instruction, and we have 170 days to do

it. Plus we have our ride times that

start in December, and we need to go on

at least 10 calls. Then consider that

we have to pass 10 module tests, and if

we get lower than a 70 on any of them,

we cannot take the state boards. So how

would you like to get to April only to

fail our last module test before our

state boards? I would be pretty pissed

if that happens. So yes all this

material and all these conditions of

the class do stress me out a little.
