Looking for 10 movies like Ride Along/Ride Along 2? Well you have come to the right place. Even though Ride Along 2 isn’t out yet, it isn’t far away from being released as it is only a few months away. Anyway, it shouldn’t be massively different to Ride Along, so these films will still be relevant. Without further ado, here is the movies.
21 & 22 Jump Street
These films follow two cops, who both have opposing strengths and weaknesses. They aren’t the best cops in the world, and have many mishaps, but they get the job done. Their first film sees them going undercover in a high school to try and find the supplier of a new drug plaguing the streets. Their second film, see them going undercover in college, where they are trying to find a big supplier again.
They may sound the same, but the films are completely different. I would even say that the second is slightly better than the first, but they are both a couple of my favourite films. These are great comedy action movies.

Starring: Channing Tatum, Jonah Hill and Ice Cube.
