Pretty good - but it was just kind of predictable.. also, Channing Tatum was super annoying and corny. I loved Jonah Hill though - he was hilarious!

Rumbustious, hilarious, effervescent are the words to articulate my thoughts about this jolly good, light-hearted flick. It's one of those movies which I believed wouldn't be passable until I watched it and turned out to be phenomenal subsequently making an indelible mark on my outlook. I was also very intrigued by the apocryphal fact that more than forty screenplays have already been written for the 'Jump Street' franchise. The story revolves around two inept police officers who are sent back to a high school in order to unobtrusively blend in to ensnare and bring down a narcotic ring. Wondrous and side-splitting performances of Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill make the movie irrefutably transfixing. Also, a beauteous performance rendered by Brie Larson. Needless to say, 21 Jump Street is one of the best comedies ever made. Albeit, it does have some indifferent moments; although the identity of the villain was unknown till the end, the fact that there was a spoiler is inevitable. I'm looking forward to watching the sequel which I believe will transcend the prequel.

Sorry, was I supposed to laugh? This is yet another film (starring the unfunny Jonah Hill, no less) that just assumes and expects you to find one lame gag, scene, line, character, plot event/turn funny because it's silly, ridiculous and just thinks itself funny, when it isn't. And having Ice Cube doesn't help either, as literally anyone else could've played that role instead, and infinitely better no doubt. Why is that talentless 'musician' come actor even here? Presumably only to make the other lame actors/actresses appear better. Besides the mildy odd funny gag/scene, there's very little to recommend this film. It speaks volumes when the best part of the film is literally seeing an unexpected brief cameo by the usual charismatic Johnny Deep, who steals the show for a couple of brief minutes from the rest of the insipid, uninspired and can't act for toffee cast. If you want a good buddy cop action movie, watch 'Hot Fuzz', not this tripe. 1/5*

This movie gets funnier to me every time that I see it! It is one of the best buddy cop movies of the last decade. If you have not seen it yet, you should really give it a shot because it is hilarious!

An actual comedy in a time where American comedies are mostly shit, 21 Jump Street is proof that American comedy can be really funny if done right.

21 Jump Street is a fantastic comedy. Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill are histarical and have amazing chemistry together. Ice Cube, Brie Larson, and Dave Franco are all also really funny side characters. 21 Jump Street is so self aware and doesn't take itself seriously. It is a great satire. Way better than your average run in the mill comedy. Lord and Miller did a great job directing 21 Jump Street and can't wait to see their next movie.

Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum have great chemistry in this funny adaptation that is only an adaptation by name.

When it was originally announced ,I thought this was just going to be a phoned in attempt to cash in on some 80's nostalgia. Though it was a cash grab, Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill provided plenty of laughs in this raunchy comedy. It's a great blend of nostalgia, action and comedy, with a great cameo from Johnny Depp. Better than expected.

Hilarious but a bit draggy in the middle.

Very funny movie, very enjoyable.

All in all, 21 Jump Street is a totally hysterical buddy-com, brilliantly starred by Hill and Tatum, that some people would enjoy.

Now I didn't watch the Johnny Depp show that it was based on, but from what I understand, this movie is pretty different (despite an awesome, epic, cameo from Depp himself in the climax). This is a entertaining, fun, and funny movie overall, the reason I give it 4 stars instead of 3 1/2 is that its a smart satire altogether of action movies, raunchy comedies, 80's nostalgia, and teens movies all together.

21 Jump Street is one of the funniest comedies made in recent years and features a hilariously crafted story and characters whose chemistry you actually believe.

Gets points for making me laugh, but the plot is unfocused and not very compelling, so the jokes don't really have anything to hang themselves on. Most of the time it feels like a bunch of sketches stitched together into a movie, particularly in the messy first act. The action feels really forced, too; I was wondering before watching how they were gonna make modern action scenes not seem out of place in a high school setting and the answer is they weren't even gonna try. The fight at the party; the baffling (on so many levels) car chase that seems to be entirely an excuse to make a lame joke about movie explosions; the climactic shoot-out: all terrible. It also has that feeling of being heavily cut down (the characters of Kemper and the two Johnsons give the impression of being much larger on the page than in the cutting room) while also being too long and outstaying its welcome in the last act. It is funny at times (loved the interactions between Tatum and the nerds), but it's so messy and poorly paced that I found myself annoyed with it more often than not.
