Sonic the Hedgehog might not be top-tier family entertainment but even as someone who doesn’t quite have the same sort of nostalgia, I still found it to be a lot of fun, mostly to an almost old-school performance from Jim Carrey.
Ride Along 2 is no better or worse than the original. You’ve pretty much got the same type of jokes and the performances from its core cast isn’t anything special, though presumably they at least had a good time while filming. The action is rather ho-hum and although I don’t mind Kevin Hart, even he seemed to be going through the motions.
Ride Along had the potential to be a good action-comedy and despite good on-screen chemistry between its two leads, it gets bogged down with a clichéd screenplay and ho-hum direction.
