There is a frantic highway chase, a high-voltage gunfight and the obligatory chaotic party; those elements plus the pimple squeezing fun of high school clashes make 21 Jump Street the movie we had to have when the TV series should have been enough
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.
Frenetic and loud can be funny on its own. But it requires either the finesse to be smart about playing stupid or sheer, balls-out craziness. Disappointingly, this has a hard time choosing between destinations and takes too long to find its way.
