21 Jump Street Reviews
February 27, 2014
Surprisingly good action-comedy with some refreshing cast chemistry, plot twists, and satire.

In any other world one would have thought 21 Jump Street would have been a big mistake, but against all odds this Chris Miller and Phil Lord film, the same filmmakers who worked their wonders on what should have been another bizzare film Lego Movie, 21 Jump Street ended up being a lot of fun and unconventional action comedy featuring Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum. The pop culture references are great, and the addition of the breaking the 4th wall commentary regarding certain elements (commenting which explosions should have worked certain ways, the inclusion of the Johnny Depp cameo) make this film a fun ride and fresh as opposed to a lot of remakes of recent ilk. A lot of fun and a good change of pace.

Jonal and Channing just did an amazing job.

A refreshingly funny comedy which does an excellent job skewering action movie cliches. Only negative I really saw was an over-reliance on gay humor, which got old after a while.

A very funny movie. Although it has a few stale moments, this film does its original justice, and mostly hits the right chords. Definitely one of my favorite comedies.

Fun action comedy from beginning to end.
Tatum and Hill have great chemistry and the other cast members do a good job as well.

The film is not as cleverly written as the 1987 TV series' episodes nor does the script and plot have as much as power as the actors' energy in strong reactions yet it provides entertaining scenes through humor and satire of what is popular with high school students.

This movie has some very funny moments, excellent self-referential humor as well, solid performances from Hill and Tatum and it is an overall fun experience, but it is also very flawed owing to a standard story that, even though they make fun of that, itself becomes cliched in the end and it loses its steam in the third act also thanks to the increasing absence of jokes. But regardless of that, it is a fun film that should be enjoyed rather than taken seriously.

This was a silly, fun movie. I wouldn't have believed it if I hadn't watched this, but Tatum and Hill made a great comedic pair.

21 Jump Street is a raucous and verbally raunchy Comedy/Action hybrid that embraces its uncanny ability to source from older material and craft an end product that's barely recognizable by either 1980s or even 2011 standards. The movie isn't really new, it's more courageous, willing to do what it wants, on its own terms and in its own time, "play it safe" be damned. This is a movie that goes all-out, unabashedly releasing the proverbial hounds and allowing them to run loose and all over modern convention and cinema-think. But just because it's vulgar doesn't mean it's good. It's how naturally it all flows from the characters and the story that makes it work, and thank the clever script, incredible direction, and first-rate lead performances for making it happen. 21 Jump Street isn't your father's "21 Jump Street," and it's not even your older brother's lazy TV remake. This is a wonderfully unique little experience that's fun, funny, and one of the year's can't-miss movies.

Considerably funnier than it probably should be or you probably expected it to be. Probably about 20mins too long but I'm happy to forgive it when it's prepared to laugh at itself this much.

The perfect comedy for high-schoolers who find humor in drugs and swearing and for those who are smarter than that because they see how it is all satirizing how dumb they are.

Chasing Tatum is funny and Jonah hill gets the girl

Very surprised. I had low expectations. I didn't expect it to be so funny from watching the trailers, even though I knew Jonah Hill would be good. the tripping out scene was just too funny. James Franco's brother was spot on as the hipster high school drug dealer.

Pleasantly surprised...and I agree that Jonah Hill TOTALLY looks like a cherub.
