You like Kevin Hart movies. Kevin Hart is a tornado of hilariousness in this film. He completely dominates the entire movie. There are several other bit actors who have experience in comedies, but none of them get a chance to do anything interesting. Ice Cube plays the same character from the first film, but his character is only really given a small love interest side story. For most of the film he is shaking his head while Kevin Hart flails his arms about in ridiculousness. Olivia Munn gets to be said love interest, but her face could be a block of wood for all of the emotion she shows. The story in this one is a very predictable standard action story that has been done to death, even in comedies. Compared to the first Ride Along this one is funnier and crazier with Kevin Hart acting as the kindling, kerosene, gasoline, wood, and the spark to stoke the fire of this comedy. If you like Kevin Hart this is one of his better comedies. Go see it!
