A.O. Scott from The New York Times, gave it a less than mediocre 50 score, saying: “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.”

Tom Russo over at the Boston Globe, gave it a 50 grade. He said: “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.”

Richard Roeper at the Chicago Sun-Times, gave it a 50 score. He said: “Ride Along 2 is the movie equivalent of a cover band. We’ve seen it all before, and often in much better films.”
