Critic Consensus: “Ride Along 2 presents a cop-comedy sequel whose well-matched stars can’t break the law of diminishing returns — or lock up a script that unabashedly steals from the original”

Directed by: Trevor Wall

Plot: A polar bear heads to New York City to try and save his glacier home from being turned into luxury condos.
