Ride Along 2 is a buddy-cop action comedy starring Atlanta detective James Payton (Ice Cube) and new academy graduate Ben Barber (Kevin Hart). Ben is engaged to James’ sister Angela (Tika Sumpter). Detective James doesn’t think Ben is qualified to be a detective. Lieutenant Brooks assigned James to go to Miami to follow up a lead on a dangerous drug ring. Since Ben is clashing with the wedding planner, Angela asked James to take Ben along with him on the Miami case. James only agreed to take Ben to Miami, because he wanted to prove that Ben isn’t cut out to be a detective. In Atlanta, James and Ben located the crime lords’ hacker, AJ (Ken Jeong) who stole the show when he hilariously played both sides of the law. Overall, I found the film entertaining with most of the comedy coming from Kevin Hart and Ken Jeong’s characters.
