Critic Review - McClatchy-Tribune News Service

They know it's a joke. But like high school itself, 21 Jump Street hits the wall about halfway in and even prom night can't save it.

You've literally been waiting all week to see this movie just so you can say this cliche review/comment. Don't take your personal experience of high school out on the movie champ...

I agree. This movie was hilarious. A shame you had your personal blinders on.

There should be, at minimum "transfer comment to youtube trailer button".

Thanks, Roger, for a candid review. I suspected from who wrote it that it would be just another predigested POS.

This dude's a total tool. Did you wear that stuck up ass outfit to see the movie as well? 21 Jump Street is the funniest movie in the past 10 years. The entire cast was perfect together.

What does it take to make this guy happy? Would a better haircut help?

That's an unfortunate review because the movie had me cracking up. I went into it thinking it would be lacking humor. I was really surprised.
Although I can't remember half the jokes, nothing to really stand out, but I do remember laughing all the way through so the movie did make me feel good. I recommend watching it with a group of friends if your in for one night of forgettable laughs.

As a critic, aren't you supposed to review from an unbiased point of view? Clearly, you wouldn't know a good movie if it kicked you in the face.

I rented this piece of crap last night on the recommendations of RottenTomatoes' critics and cretin ratings.
This will be the last time I do that!!!!
Finally realizing the low mental comprehension of the majority of the people that take this site seriously.
This film is geared to IDIOTS and I guess it found it's viewership at RottenTomatoes.
Pathetic!

The only thing I can surmise from reading your review is that you didn't get any action after tenth grade, including prom night.
