Ride Along 2 Summary
As his wedding day approaches, Ben heads to Miami with his soon-to-be brother-in-law James to bring down a drug dealer who's supplying the dealers of Atlanta with product.
What it does do - is allow you to park your brain in neutral for 100 minutes, laugh at some silly jokes... and then walk out of theatre and immediately forget it ever happened. And there's nothing wrong with that. In fact, it's kind of refreshing.
Ride Along 2, which picks up not long after the first film ended, doesn't mess much with the formula, except that everything feels more frayed and tired this time around.
Hart and Cube are too good to settle for hawking leftovers. They deserve better. So do we.
Ride Along 2 - everything one would expect and less - is over-the-top imbecilic.
"Ride Along" was a surprise hit, earning $135 million and becoming Ice Cube and Kevin Hart's biggest starring vehicle. "Ride Along 2" is essentially more of the same, and Hart is its driving force. Ride with it.
