This sequel to the hit action comedy 21 Jump Street is better all around: the pacing is more consistent, the sight gags more imaginative, the self-referential jokes sharper.

22 Jump Street is pretty much the exact same movie as 21 Jump Street. It knows it, you know it, and it knows that you know it. And that is why it's brilliant.

Self-referential irony is hardly a new gimmick, having served as the underlying premise for such franchises as Scream and Austin Powers, but rarely has it been indulged with such fervor.

While this film is dominated by vulgar, slapstick humor, it is not exactly brain dead. There is a certain self-aware, self-mocking quality to it. It also helps that the characters are basically good guys.

It doesn't disguise its intention as a blockbuster summer sequel that's more financially than creatively motivated.

Proving that sometimes the same joke is funnier the second time around, Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum return for a major serving of big, broad, stupid laughs.

All you really need to know is that it's the cleverest sequel to a dumb movie of all time.

'22 Jump Street' tries to catch a meta-wave on the shoulders of its stars, Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum.

While much of this is pretty standard stuff, it's all easy to take thanks to the engaging performances from the two leads. The screenplay contains quite a few funny lines, and the direction by Phil Lord and Christopher Miller is crisp and efficient.

Subversively satisfying, if senselessly silly sequel.

In fact, much of the bawdy humor in 22 Jump Street comes from its makers' staunch refusal to take anything about the venture seriously.

In a summer of sequels, the most laughs so far, and by far, come from a raunchy retro repeat that makes plenty of fun of its own recycled folly-and expense.

Begins with a clip of a professor discussing the meaning of yin and yang, and that symbol of apparently opposing but in fact complementary forces becomes a kind of theme.

22 Jump Street is not just a sequel, it is a 112-minute running gag about sequels, including the adaptation of the title.

Perfectly satisfying... betting everything on Hill and Tatum being delightful to watch in their little platonic romcom and winning that bet.

You're here (or should be here) for The Hill & Tatum Show, which worked so well first time around and is just as good this time.

It's the easy chemistry between Tatum - who gets funnier the dumber he acts, and here he's playing a character who can't remember what a library is called - and Hill that makes sure this is never less than entertaining.

It's lightweight instead of high-concept. Silly instead of crass. It's the funniest spoof movie I've seen in a while.

Audience Reviews for 22 Jump Street

It's admirable that the writers of "21 Jump Street" wanted to capitalize on the fun and fervor of the first film, and tried to recreate its magic in this sequel. Unfortunately this self-congratulating send-up to the original eighties television show is too busy trying to show its audience that it's in on the joke, instead of just telling it. Oftentimes this film tells its audience "we know sequels usually suck, but we don't suck, because we'll make ourselves suck" and then it kamikazes itself. Though that level of Meta can be obnoxious, there are some solid comedy moments reminiscent of the original. Hill and Tatum work perfectly together in a blended chemistry that should have been better exploited for their second romp onscreen. While the film was very much like the original in its form of comedy and execution, it would have been better to see that, constantly, throughout the film, instead of scenes of partying and reference to the fact that it was a movie. I know it's a movie, I'm watching it.

Holy hell. Hilarious and three-quarters. This sequel pokes fun at sequels, meet-cutes, homoeroticism, codependent relationships - all at a bracing mile a minute so the formula doesn't seem so formulaic. I found myself referencing quips, events, and characters even weeks later. Jillian Bell is a caustic, deadpan bitch, and Dave Franco is a quivery little prison bitch, both in the best ways possible.

Phil Lord and Chris Miller. It takes two directors to direct a sequel of twos.For an hour and 50 minutes, 22 Jump Street strings a lot of the same along the way; however, through it all, the entertainment value manages to loiter at a high level. The story is also easy to follow.R-rated material lace the humor. Sexual, racist, and consistent cursing, while overdone in this day and age, find a way to generate laughter. The violence is in good quantity, although mild in nature when compared with the strong humor.Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill work well together, creating great chemistry for a leading duo. Ice Cube delivers in some of the funniest pieces of the film. Amber Stevens is easy on the eyes.When all is said and done, 22 Jump Street is an enjoyable sequel, especially with the closing credits.

An outrageously entertaining sequel that knows exactly what it is and how to work with it through every laugh that goes bye. Its funnier and better than the first film. An insanely hilarious and wonderfully entertaining joy-ride from start to finish. It's loaded with big action and even bigger laughs. An explosively goofy and ridiculously enjoyable movie. It's fun to see a sequel that knows its a sequel and that just adds to its brilliance. It's not the most fresh sequel around but it has a great amount of energy that just makes it better. Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill are a dream comedy team, they have the best chemistry and deliver nothing but fun that will just makes the audience love them even more. Hill and Tatum have never been funnier, they are such a gifted comic duo. Ice Cube is incredibly hilarious, he gives his best comic performance ever. The ending delivers even more laughs that is worth staying in your seats for a few extra minutes.
