Ride Along 2 is the second instalment of the action comedy which stars comedian Kevin Hart and rapper Ice Cube.
The pair have teamed up again for this sequel to 2014's Ride Along, which is out in cinemas on Friday January 22.
But is it as funny as the first film? Here is everything you need to know about Ride Along 2 (12A).
What is it about?
Ride Along 2 opens with videogame addict Ben Barber (Kevin Hart) fresh out of the Police Academy and keen to prove himself on the mean streets of Atlanta.
His impetuosity has dire consequences for his soon-to-be brother-in-law, Detective James Payton (Ice Cube), during an undercover sting.
Consequently, Lieutenant Brooks (Bruce McGill) dispatches Payton to Miami to trace a suspect and Ben begs to tag along to make amends for his costly blunder.
However, the rookie is in the midst of planning his wedding to Payton's sister Angela (Tika Sumpter), and there are sharp differences of opinion between the groom and the feisty wedding planner (Sherri Shepherd).
In order to eliminate the friction, Angela implores her brother to take her fiance to Miami for a few days.
During the subsequent investigation, the two men work closely with ballsy local detective Maya Cruz (Olivia Munn), whose no-nonsense approach to policing piques Payton's romantic interests.
Who is in it?
Get Hard's Kevin Hart plays Ben Barber, Boyz n the Hood's Ice Cube plays James Payton, Iron Man 2's Olivia Munn plays Maya and Law & Order's Benjamin Bratt plays Antonio Pope.
Other stars include Ride Along's Tika Sumpter, Law Abiding Citizen's Bruce McGill, Less than Perfect's Sherri Shepherd and professional baseballer Carlos Gomez.
Is it worth a watch?
This dim-witted cops and robbers caper lazily recycles the set-up of the original film and transplants the chaotic gun fights and male posturing to Miami.
Action set pieces lack pizzazz, including a centrepiece car chase, which is visualised as a videogame a la Grand Theft Auto in Ben's head and consequently lacks pulse-quickening thrills.
Ride Along 2, directed by Tim Story, sees the mismatched double act of Ice Cube and Hart fail to convince us that they could suffer an hour together without drawing weapons, let alone work effectively to bring down a major crime cartel.
Story directs at a lacklustre pace, which suggests he signed on with the returning cast purely for a pay cheque, while parallel romantic subplots beggar belief.
