  • Kevin Carr @ Fat Guys at the Movies
    • Excerpt: While far from perfect and falling into the expected predictable and trite storyline we’ve seen before in dozens of other buddy cop movies, “Ride Along 2” certainly works as a broad comedy.
  • Matt Donato @ We Got This Covered
    • Excerpt: Ride Along 2 may be a little bit funnier, but its formulaic buddy-cop plot doesn’t stretch to be a bigger, more ambitious sequel in any sense.
  • Susan Granger @
    • Excerpt: Recycled buddy-cop comedy, filled with silly slapstick…
  • Courtney Howard @
    • Excerpt: It makes make little to no attempt to deepen character dynamics or further the franchise in the ways it should be grown. That said, it still winds up being slightly better than the original.
  • Charlie Juhl @ Citizen Charlie
    • Excerpt: One year to the weekend that Ride Along muscled its way onto screens assigning itself superlatives for odd couple charisma and action comedy audacity, Ride Along 2 thuds onto screens showing off for all who mistakenly pay to enter the theater its front-runner status for worst film of the year. The talent in front of and behind the camera remains the same and produces a mirror image of last year’s calamity doubling our agony as we not only dredge up awful memories of the first film, but soak in the nonsense from the new episode.
  • Dan Lybarger @
    • Excerpt: Hart’s shtick has a sell-by date. His constant jabbering gets more irritating as the film progresses.
  • Brent McKnight @ The Last Thing I See
    • Excerpt: You’ll get the most out of Ride Along 2 if you’re a die hard Kevin Hart fan or an Ice Cube completist, but there isn’t much that will be remembered walking out of the theater, and this is probably one best left for home video or stumbling across late one night on cable.
  • Stefan Pape @ HeyUGuys
  • Frank Swietek @ One Guys Opinion
    • Excerpt: Just more of the same, which means it’s not very much…what was mediocre in the first go-around is no better in the second.
