Donald Trump finally has entered the TV ad wars for the November general election, and he got a familiar face — if not necessarily a familiar name or voice — to narrate it. Bruce McGill, the prolific character actor who co-stars on Rizzoli & Isles but is locked into movie comedy lore as D-Day from Animal House, does the voice-over for the spot titled “Two Americas: Immigration.” The ad begins with verbiage that has been pounded into our collective brains during the past… »
And it’s not just any old episode the actress got to helm. Rather, “For Richer or Poorer” (airing Monday at 9/8c) drops the none-too-tiny bombshell that Dr. Maura Isles once was, for a brief moment, married to rich kid Edward Dunn (played by Life Unexpected‘s Kristofer Polaha).
With this and just three other episodes left in the series’ run, »

While he didn’t name names, a big get would be the original MacGyver himself, Richard Dean Anderson. Then there’s Bruce McGill who played Jack Dalton in 19 episodes of the show. Lenkov mentioned that MacGyver went into production… »

Stars: Ice Cube, Kevin Hart, Ken Jeong, Olivia Munn, Benjamin Bratt, Tika Sumpter, Bruce McGill, Sherri Shepherd, Arturo del Puerto, Carlos Gómez | Written by Phil Hay, Matt Manfredi | Directed by Tim Story
Once again directed by Tim Story, who previously worked with Ice Cube on Barbershop and the first film in this series, Ride Along 2 is yet another Ice Cube starring, stereotypical buddy-comedy and like all good buddy comedies it lives and dies by its cast. Last time the chemistry between Kevin Hart and Ice Cube felt stilted and forced, leaving this reviewer a little cold – will it be any different this time round?
Ride Along 2 picks up the story about a year after our heroes’ last adventure. Not content to work as a beat cop, Ben (Hart), a recent academy graduate, now aspires to be a detective like his soon-to-be brother-in-law. However, James (Cube) still doesn’t »

After four straight weeks of box office domination, Star Wars: The Force Awakens, has finally fallen. The international blockbuster was knocked out of the top spot for the first time since it opened one month ago, with Universal's Ride Along 2 taking first place in its opening weekend with $34 million. The Revenant, in its second week of its national rollout, stayed in second place with $29.5 million, dropping just 25.9 percent, with Star Wars: The Force Awakens slipping to third place with $25.1 million
Star Wars: The Force Awakens got off to an incredible start last month with a record-breaking opening weekend of $247.9 million, and its second weekend record of $149.2 million is just as impressive. It dropped just 39.8% in its second weekend, which is incredible for a movie of this size, and 39.5% in its third weekend, setting another record with $90.2 million. Last weekend, it finally suffered a "normal" drop, dipping 53.1% to win again with $43.1 million, »
Universal Pictures dropped their new comedy/action movie, "Ride Along 2," into theaters today, January 15th, 2016, and all the major,top movie critics have given their opinions on it, and it just didn't seem to resonate well ,at all, with the majority of them, getting just an overall 32 score out of a possible 100 score across 24 reviews at the Metacritic.com site. The film stars: Benjamin Bratt, Bruce McGill, Ice Cube, Ken Jeong, Kevin Hart, Olivia Munn and Tika Sumpter. We've posted comments from a couple of the critics,below. A.O. Scott over at The New York Times, gave it a below average 50 grade, stating: "This franchise is lucky to have Kevin Hart in that role, and his manic comic energy is enough to make the sequel something other than a complete waste of time. But the genre is also stubbornly innovation-proof, and there’s not much new to see here. »

Ride Along 2, 2016
Directed by Tim Story
As his wedding day approaches, Ben heads to Miami with his soon-to-be brother-in-law James to bring down a drug dealer who’s supplying the dealers of Atlanta with product.
It goes without saying that if you don’t find Kevin Hart’s brand of hyper-drive slapstick comedy funny, you will hate Ride Along 2. Here’s the thing though, I actually find Kevin Hart humorous; he has great comedic timing, on-point line delivery, and an infectious presence that highlights craziness. With that said, Ride Along 2 is essentially worthless and devoid of laughs. Most offensively, it gives Kevin Hart surprisingly very little to do.
The key problem is unabashed laziness. Ride Along released two years ago in January and became an anomaly, raking in »

Chicago – Kevin Hart’s license to riff should be revoked. “Ride Along 2” is an aimless, pointless and seemingly endless sequel to the bafflingly successful action comedy from a couple years back. Hart hijacks nearly every scene with his incessant hyperactive schtick.
This turns the entire film into an excuse for Hart to scream, squeal, and test the limits of an audience’s endurance. An entire scene is devoted to the testing the idea of just how annoying he can before someone in the audience snaps and wishes him bodily injury. Meanwhile, Ice Cube just stands around looking down in disgust and wondering whether this movie was really worth the time and trouble.
Hart has found success in essentially two genres, buddy comedies and wedding comedies. So “Ride Along 2” is something of a Frankenstein’s monster mashup between the two. Hart is now one week away from marrying Ice Cube’s sister, »

In its first four weeks at the box office, nothing could come close to Star Wars: The Force Awakens, as it shattered box office records left and right. Disney and LucasFilm's sci-fi adventure has overtaken Avatar as the highest-grossing movie of all time domestically, with a current domestic tally of $812.7 million and a worldwide total of $1.73 billion, which is still nearly $1 billion shy of Avatar's global record of $2.7 billion. As the blockbuster enters its fifth week in theaters, it faces its toughest test against three new releases, Paramount's 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi, Universal's Ride Along 2 and Lionsgate's animated comedy Norm of the North. According to the projections at Pro.BoxOffice.com, Ride Along 2 will be the first movie to dethrone this box office behemoth, with an estimated opening weekend tally of $47 million.

In early 2014, Universal Pictures’ Ride Along became an instant hit, grossing more than $150 million worldwide as audiences fell hard for the unlikely comic pairing of Ice-Cube and Kevin Hart. And while most sequels don’t begin preproduction until well after moviegoers experience the first, Ride Along 2 was a follow up that the filmmakers knew they had to do.
Starring Ice Cube, Kevin Hart, Ken Jeong, Benjamin Bratt, Olivia Munn, Bruce McGill, Tika Sumpter and Sherri Shepherd, the sequel picks up about a year after our heroes’ last adventure. Plans for a quick trip to Miami go awry when their unorthodox policing gets them into a compromising situation that threatens to derail a major case…and Ben and Angela’s upcoming wedding day.
