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.

21 Jump Street gets the remake job done with tongue-in-cheek style & plenty of outrageous moments.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5

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.

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.
Full Review | Original Score: 8.5/10
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.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4

21 Jump Street is a smartly stupid buddy comedy that plays with the ridiculousness of its set-up.
Full Review | Original Score: B
July 5, 2012
...feels more like a guerrilla stunt than a soulless and cynical cash grab. Hooray for Hollywood, I guess.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4

Slick and funny as hell, 21 Jump Street is one of the best comedies of the year.
Full Review | Original Score: 8/10
June 25, 2012
A raucous, entertaining, and incredibly funny film that respects the premise of the original series...
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/4
June 22, 2012
The best thing that can be said for it is that it never coasts on just one type of joke; funny in execution, not just in concept.

The movie is perfectly pleasant, a smidgen too aware of itself but consistently sharp.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
April 30, 2012
While the film struggles at the start as Tatum and Hill share little chemistry, they improve minute by minute and are one of the shining lights by the end, their journey boasting a surprising emotional pull.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5

Feels like it's doing something new with the teen genre, while still acknowledging its debt to the classics that came before it.
April 29, 2012
t's less fun when the guns come out in the final act, but there's a moment late in the game that redeems the movie's predictable beats, before the whole thing dissolves into entropy and disorder.
Full Review | Original Score: 86/100

21 Jump Street is nothing like the original series. Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum have a great chemistry and the strong beginning and ending do a pretty good job disguising the flabby middle. It's crass, self effacing, 'meta', stupidity and it works.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5
April 21, 2012
Clever, profane and action-packed, '21 Jump Street' fairly leaps onto the big screen as one of the most enjoyable movies of the (still-admittedly young) year.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/4
