New to On Demand: Ride Along 2

Ice Cube and Kevin Hart rekindle their comic chemistry in Ride Along 2, the sequel to the 2014 action-comedy Ride Along. While the smart cop/bumbling cop movie formula is all too familiar, the humor in this go-round is still centered around Hart and his shenanigans but is enhanced by an unusually diverse supporting cast that includes The Hangover’s Ken Jeong, The View’s Sherri Shepherd and Magic Mike’s Olivia Munn.

Twenty-five years later, HBO’s Confirmation — starring Scandal’s Kerry Washington … Continue reading
