Ride Along 2 movie quotes bring the popular buddy cop movie back for a second edition. The action comedy was written by Phil Hay and Matt Manfredi. Tim Story directed the sequel to the 2014 hit. Ride Along 2 opened in theaters on January 15, 2016.

In Ride Along 2, Angela (Tika Simpter) has accepted Ben's (Kevin Hart) proposal and the two are set to get married the next Saturday. Since the original film, Ben has also completed the police academy and taken a job as a real, live Atlanta Police officer alongside Angela's brother, James (Ice Cube).

While James still isn't sold on Ben, he does give him a chance to earn his detective stripes by joining a team heading to Miami to investigate a drug boss, Antonio Pope (Benjamin Bratt). As one might expect, the veteran detective and rookie cop, added with the wannabe brother in law vibe, make for some mighty good laughs.

Olivia Munn, Ken Jeong, Glen Powell, Sherri Shepherd and Bruce McGill costar in the film, which opened alongside others such as The Revenant, 13 Hours The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi, Norm of the North, and The Hateful Eight.

    Ben: A good detective knows how to blend in with the locals.
    James: Oh yeah, you blending all right.

    Ben thinks that by dressing as what James describes as a marshmallow, he can better blend in with the locals in Miami. The fact that James is calling him out on what he is wearing suggests otherwise.
