FGE - In the first Ride Along movie, there’s a scene in which Kevin Hart’s character visits a firing range and progressively tries out bigger and bigger guns. The problem with this set up? You can see the pay off coming from a mile away. This is a problem that plagues its sequel. Being higher in production value and offering a vibrant new setting in Miami, Ride Along 2 is nowhere near as funny as it needs to be in order to save these brothers-in-law from bland character development and a by the numbers cop story.
