Despite all the coy formula-flipping and compulsive jokes, what wins us over is the odd-couple chemistry of the two leads.

To my surprise it turned out to be the big hulking anatomical joke-spewing genuine bromance-building raunchcom that could.

A surprisingly strong film with a solid balance of humor and heart, actually making us feel for and identify with the characters rather than just go through the usual paces of an R-rated comedy.

It knows it is rather silly fluff, so it revels in its own raunchy silliness -- creating a comedy that delivers plenty of laughs.
December 19, 2018
A surprisingly sharp film that mixes several genres together - and then subverts them all.

Sure, references to "Glee" and Robert Downey Jr.'s drug years may not hold up quite as well in 20 years, but in an era of disposable pop culture, "21 Jump Street" is anything but, likely to be namechecked for a lot longer.

All in all, this is not the atrocity it could have been and offers plenty of laughs to followers of the original and the uninitiated.

... 21 Jump Street is consistently funny throughout, with a few really huge laughs peppered in the script.

Not that the original series was high-brow/must-see television, but I figured any remake of it in the 21st century would at least be far more ambitious than this tired bit of recycling.

Fast, funny and smarter than its dunce-cap demeanor lets on.
June 23, 2013
A lot smarter and a lot funnier than it has any real right to be.
March 4, 2013
Chaotic and far-fetched yet funny enough to have audiences rolling in the aisles.
January 8, 2013
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.
January 8, 2013
The supporting characters add depth to the comedic pairing of Tatum and Hill.
January 8, 2013
Remake or no, this movie is hysterical.
September 30, 2012
21 Jump Street gets the remake job done with tongue-in-cheek style & plenty of outrageous moments.
September 16, 2012
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 15, 2012
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.
September 4, 2012
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.
August 17, 2012
21 Jump Street is a smartly stupid buddy comedy that plays with the ridiculousness of its set-up.
