Tim Story’s anticipated Ride Along 2 cruises into theaters this Friday. The sequel picks up where Ride Along left off, with Ben Barber (Kevin Hart) graduating from the police academy and putting together last-minute wedding details with his fiancée Angela Payton (Tika Sumpter), while James Payton (Ice Cube) struggles to cope with his soon-to-be brother-in-law’s existence. Days before tying the knot, Ben and James are assigned to a case in Miami and tasked with the hefty responsibility of bringing down a powerful drug lord named Antonio Pope (Benjamin Bratt).
I had the opportunity to trek down to Miami last week for the world premiere and to sit with the cast and crew to talk about their new buddy comedy. In the first segment of our Ride Along interviews, I asked two crucial questions when it comes to riding in the whip: 1. What’s the first song they play when handed the aux cord? and 2. What’s their worst experience as a passenger?
I have to say, I’m surprised by some of their song selections, but to each their own. As far as their passenger woes are concerned, family and the ever-polarizing Uber were the main culprits of obscene driving practices.
