Flimsy, shallow and a bother just to watch

If you’ve seen one movie based on a Nicholas Sparks romance, you’ve seen them all. Like the others, “The Choice” bleeds sap and treacle. And the story, even by Sparks’ standards, is so lame I wanted to punch the movie in the face, so to speak.

‘Ride Along 2” just a carbon copy of the first film

Rapper-turned-actor Ice Cube and stand-up comedian Kevin Hart are a promising comedic duo. It’s just too bad the material falls woefully short of their abilities in the buddy-cop comedy “Ride Along 2.” Director Tim Story’s follow-up to the 2014 original, is more of the same. I shudder to think how awful the movie would be without its two stars.
