    As cop comedies go, Ride Along 2 gets the job done.

  • Kayla S. Samoy

    At best, Ride Along 2 is what you’ve seen in every other comedic cop movie. Nothing outstanding, but mindless fun.

  • Alan Scherstuhl

    Like your smartphone, it's a testament to the theory of interchangeable parts, a perfectly engineered product that, if you're charitable, you might also think of in terms of art....But every time I started to believe that there's some parodic impulse behind the filmmakers' recasting of clichés, Cube's character would punch a suspect in custody or commit some other violation of civil liberties that the film invites us to cheer.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Michael Phillips

    The script by Phil Hay and Matt Manfredi gives you next to nothing for narrative complication and surprise, and a meager amount of verbal jokes.

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • Peter Travers

    It's simply a retread of the first Ride Along, a 2014 box-office hit, and proof positive that a bigger budget doesn’t buy bigger laughs.

    Rolling Stone Full Review
  • A.O. Scott

    This franchise is lucky to have Kevin Hart in that role, and his manic comic energy is enough to make the sequel something other than a complete waste of time. But the genre is also stubbornly innovation-proof, and there’s not much new to see here.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Tom Russo

    You’ll have to be satisfied with a modest assortment of energetically comic moments here, because the story sure isn’t a reason to catch this encore, and neither are who-asked-for-’em cast additions such as Ken Jeong.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Jesse Hassenger

    The implausibilities, cop-movie checkboxes, and mildly wasted talent make Ride Along 2 lazy, but not downright loathsome. If anything, it’s perhaps slightly more amusing and agreeable than the original—a sign of how little that film’s seemingly surefire premise wound up mattering.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Richard Roeper

    Ride Along 2 is the movie equivalent of a cover band. We’ve seen it all before, and often in much better films.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • Kevin P. Sullivan

    Ride Along 2, which moves the action from Atlanta to Miami, plays more like a remake than a sequel.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Randall Colburn

    Hart, the firecracker that he is, has a fitting comedic (and crime-fighting) partner out there somewhere. But it’s not in the Ride Along series.

    Consequence of Sound Full Review
  • Joshua Rothkopf

    Shoddy and exhausted from the start, this painfully unfunny buddy-cop comedy lands with a plop in the January sewer of failed Hollywood castoffs.

    Time Out New York Full Review
  • John Hazelton

    With a script that’s about as inventive as the title, Ride Along 2 does little more than rehash the formula that two years ago teamed Ice Cube and Kevin Hart in an amiable if unambitious action comedy.

    Screen International Full Review
  • Jordan Hoffman

    This laid-back amusement should not be misinterpreted as competent storytelling. Though some of the jokes land, that’s entirely due to the performances; there’s not one example of clever writing in the entire picture.

    The Guardian Full Review
  • Mike Scott

    For better and for worse, it's neither better nor worse than the original "Ride Along." That's because it's essentially the same movie.

    New Orleans Times-Picayune Full Review
  • Frank Scheck

    With a storyline less challenging than that of a typical CBS crime procedural, Ride Along 2 is little more than a repetitive rehash of the original.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Susan Wloszczyna

    One of the loudest laughs arrives when we get to enjoy a scowling James re-imagined as a game character. Points for greater diversity in the cast as well, but, if there is a second sequel in the offing, please allow the women to be more than the sum of their body parts. Full Review
  • Stephanie Merry

    The plot is paint by numbers, which puts pressure on the comedy to deliver. But it doesn’t.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Bilge Ebiri

    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.

    New York Magazine (Vulture) Full Review
  • Marjorie Baumgarten

    Although the plot is pretty bare-bones, it’s propped up by plenty of gratuitous dialogue and imagery that do nothing to further the story.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Alonso Duralde

    The film’s most genuinely funny moment involves A.J.’s ringtones, which should perhaps come as no surprise — the stakes, and the laughs, are so small that Ride Along 2 was apparently designed to be watched on your phone.

    TheWrap Full Review
  • Brad Wheeler

    Hart’s irritating character desperately seeks approval, but his idiocy is too much. The comedian makes Jerry Lewis look like Benedict Cumberbum – and if you think that line is funny, Ride Along 2 is your kind of jam.

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • Roger Moore

    As for this long, boring, violent sequel? Life’s too short.

    Movie Nation Full Review
  • Eric Henderson

    Like any serving of junk food, it seems engineered to give you that initial rush of satisfaction, but leaves you in a dead zone where the only thing you want is more of the same.

    Slant Magazine Full Review
  • Mick LaSalle

    It’s a formula movie, which wouldn’t necessarily be a problem, except that it’s a sort of bad version of itself.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Stephen Whitty

    Pretty as Bratt and Munn are, they're not distracting enough to cover up for the screaming Hart and grating Jeong, who seem to be in a race to see who can play a more annoying character. In the end, it's a tie — they both win.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Justin Chang

    Another tired, witless and potentially lucrative attempt to spin an exhausted buddy-cop template into action-comedy gold.

    Variety Full Review
  • Kyle Smith

    To call Ride Along 2 rubbish is unfair to rubbish, which at some point had a purpose.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Kevin Jagernauth

    The entire film seems cloaked with a general vibe of “good enough.” Embarrassingly cheap CGI effects, poor ADR, and slipshod, jarring editing are the technical failures that compound with the creative ones to indicate a movie that’s not just miscalculated, but seemingly committed to putting together, at its best, a deliverable product and nothing more.
