Review: Ride Along 2

PLOT: Atlanta cop James Payton and his imminent brother-in-law Ben Barber travel to Miami to bust up a drug ring. Hilarity ensues. REVIEW: RIDE ALONG 2 is such a bummer to sit through. It's hardly even a movie, it's like a commercial for some obnoxious product that it should be ashamed of promoting. I genuinely thought it would be impossible for this sequel to sink...

Cool Videos: Kevin Hart & Ice Cube take Conan O'Brien on another ride along

Even though he may not be a part of one of the major networks anymore, Conan O'Brien still kills it on a regular basis from his home on TBS. He has a great comedic mind, and, as a result, keeps generating quality skits that he can add to her repertoire. A couple of years ago, Conan shared a Lyft with Ice Cube and Kevin Hart to ride around Hollywood and basically poke fun of...

After the Ice Cube - Kevin Hart buddy cop flick RIDE ALONG turned out to be a surprise hit for Universal last year, you knew a sequel was on the way. This January, it's here, and, by the looks of the first trailer for RIDE ALONG 2, it's more of the same. Basically, if you got laughs from the first movie, you'll probably find some here, as Universal isn't reinventing the wheel....

Jeff Bridges was a little underwhelmed after seeing R.I.P.D.

I've only heard a couple of people say good things about R.I.P.D. Those comments are basically praise for Jeff Bridges . I've got no argument there. The film ended up bombing then was swept under the rug by THE CONJURING. Was it worth it? Sure the pay is nice but what made Bridges want to do a project like this? Speaking with GQ the actor said while it was a good time and...

Exclusive 1:1 Interview: Mary-Louise Parker talks R.I.P.D.

Talk about good timing; Mary-Louise Parker is about to see two high-profile films of hers released on the same day: RED 2 and R.I.P.D. Good timing for me, too, since I got to chat with her for both flicks!. (Click HERE to see our conversation about RED 2; Bruce Willis was hanging around also.) In R.I.P.D., Parker plays Proctor, the sardonic, take-no-nonsense captain of the...
