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.

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.

    I\'m a Kevin Hart fan, but I ended up walking out of this movie about 2/3 of the way in. I didn\'t laugh once. The audience wasn\'t laughing either. It just wasn\'t funny. Hart\'s act is getting old. He needs to get beyond the little man nonsense and into some real comedy.
