Movie Info

In the action-comedy 21 Jump Street, Schmidt (Jonah Hill) and Jenko (Channing Tatum) are more than ready to leave their adolescent problems behind. Joining the police force and the secret Jump Street unit, they use their youthful appearances to go undercover in a local high school. As they trade in their guns and badges for backpacks, Schmidt and Jenko risk their lives to investigate a violent and dangerous drug ring. But they find that high school is nothing like they left it just a few years

The late-eighties TV series is rebooted with jolts of sentiment, personal discovery, and wild comedy.

The whole crew makes clear its affections for action cinema, trashy television and the YouTube generation alike while having fun at the expense of all three.

"21" makes clear from the beginning it is gobbling up some pop culture refuse in the name of nothing more than making fun of it and having fun with it.

Consistently funny and surprisingly self-aware, 21 Jump Street is far better than expected. In fact, it's the best mainstream comedy in recent years.

A lot smarter and a lot funnier than it has any real right to be.

Chaotic and far-fetched yet funny enough to have audiences rolling in the aisles.

Given the broad drama of the series, their movie should be full of big ideas, and instead settles for redundant gags involving drugs, guns, and high school cliques.

21 Jump Street gets the remake job done with tongue-in-cheek style & plenty of outrageous moments.

September 30, 2012 Full Review Source: ScreenRant

Because of Bacall's skill at writing great comedic material and Lord's and Miller's talent behind the camera, "21 Jump Street" became more than what it originally appeared to be, which is a surprise I'm always grateful for.

September 16, 2012 Full Review Source:

21 Jump Street takes the basic concept of the original series, and uses it to create an action/comedy that is not only palatable to modern audiences, but appealing as well.

Co-written, produced by, and stars Jonah Hill, who took exactly the right attitude towards the movie: He and his costar Channing Tatum embraced the stereotypes, laughed at themselves, and came up with a surprisingly funny film.

21 Jump Street is a smartly stupid buddy comedy that plays with the ridiculousness of its set-up.

...feels more like a guerrilla stunt than a soulless and cynical cash grab. Hooray for Hollywood, I guess.

Slick and funny as hell, 21 Jump Street is one of the best comedies of the year.

A raucous, entertaining, and incredibly funny film that respects the premise of the original series...

For an action comedy, "21 Jump Street" had less action or comedy than I expected. It felt as if I spent too much time waiting for something to happen-either for a joke to fire, or a pistol.

The best thing that can be said for it is that it never coasts on just one type of joke; funny in execution, not just in concept.

June 22, 2012 Full Review Source: Film Experience
Film Experience

A floppy cross of high-school movie and buddy-cop comedy. Overdoses on flaccid penis and vagina 'jokes,' indulges in the ain't-this-cool?!ness of a cop-action flick, and passes out on the cliché-couch of bromance.

The movie is perfectly pleasant, a smidgen too aware of itself but consistently sharp.

April 30, 2012 Full Review Source:

While the film struggles at the start as Tatum and Hill share little chemistry, they improve minute by minute and are one of the shining lights by the end, their journey boasting a surprising emotional pull.

Audience Reviews for 21 Jump Street

21 Jump Street was an unexpected surprise. It's the funniest film of 2012 and amidst all the laughs manages to accurately portray the modern day high school. While the script is smart and the self-referential jokes are welcome, the movie belongs to its stars Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum. They are a great comedy duo. This movie alone made me a fan of Tatum.

More of the same. A 100 min. (approx.) journey that wasn't jumpy enough to enjoy the ride. Besides, the casting disappointed big time.

"21 Jump Street" may seem like a pointless reboot/remake of the classic Johnny Depp television show, and it pretty much is, but the thing that makes this film so great is the fact that it acknowledges that it is unoriginal and comes up with jokes that are actually funny! Something that has been missing from many comedies lately. The subtle points the film makes about being a film are hilarious, the chemistry between Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill is arousing (watch the movie to see what I mean), and the directing is fantastic. The pace of this movie could not have been any better. Also, I welcome with open arms, James Franco's brother Dave, who, in his very first film role is great, even though some of his characters dialogue is a bit over-the-top. This is a film that should have been a disaster, but turned out to be a laugh-out-loud genius comedy. There are also some cameo's and some hidden background elements that pretty much trash the fact that films have too much product placement. Even though some parts go a little too far, and there are a lot, and I mean a lot of dick jokes, "21 Jump Street" is the best comedy of the year so far, and overall probably one of my favourite comedies.
