RIDE ALONG 2 REVIEWED
“Ride Along 2” is a buddy cop movie based on cliche. Kevin Hart continues to be loud and shrinks with each passing quip. Ice Cube continues to try and reclaim the dignity he lost making family films for 5-10 years. The supporting cast is an uneven mix designed to hit all of the key demos. That being said, I still enjoy seeing Bruce McGill in these movies. You’ve come a long way, D-Day.
Olivia Munn is surprisingly not distracting as the lead supporting character. Her brand of humor has always rubbed me the wrong way, but she dials it back to offer a counterpoint to Hart and Cube. Still, it’s a movie about fast cars, loud jokes and trying to remain youthful in the face that the average cast member’s age is between 35 and 40. Doesn’t it seem a little sad when you put it in perspective? I ask, as the younger crowd starts to tune out.
It’s not to say that there haven’t been 800 of these movies in the last 30 years. What matters is that did it connect? Did the humor, action and attempts at domestic highly coordinated stunts pay off? The answer is kinda. If you can live with that, then this is well worth a purchase or rental.
