Sure, one might argue, those were movies built around Hart's signature brand. But do audiences really want to see the dude act? Apparently so: "Ride Along" is on track to have the biggest opening weekend of the month by far, according to those who have seen pre-release audience surveys. In the movie, Hart plays a pesky aspiring police officer seeking the approval of his girlfriend's brother — a no-nonsense veteran cop played by Ice Cube. It's the first of two new films he has out this winter following his turn in "Grudge Match" with Sylvester Stallone and Robert De Niro. The second, a Valentine's Day release, is a remake of the 1986 Rob Lowe-Demi Moore romantic comedy "About Last Night," which co-stars Joy Bryant, Michael Ealy and Regina Hall.
