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.

The late-eighties TV series is rebooted with jolts of sentiment, personal discovery, and wild comedy.

It has a tone all its own: drunk enough to lower the inhibitions; not so drunk that it becomes unintelligible.

The only thing you need to know about this cinematic remake of the 1980's television favorite 21 Jump Street is that it's funny.
March 16, 2012
The whole crew makes clear its affections for action cinema, trashy television and the YouTube generation alike while having fun at the expense of all three.
March 16, 2012
A raucous, raunchy comedy.
March 16, 2012
The twist that makes this somewhat ragged comedy work as well as it does is that the two cops revert to the level of high-school immaturity as they blend in with the genuine teens around them.

This bracing new take on 21 Jump Street has a playful spark all its own. It's a blast.
March 16, 2012
A try-anything, fitfully amusing muddle that wears its mocking cynicism a bit too proudly.
March 16, 2012
"21" makes clear from the beginning it is gobbling up some pop culture refuse in the name of nothing more than making fun of it and having fun with it.

This is the funniest movie I've seen in more than a year.

"21 Jump Street" might be yet another product of Hollywood's recycling program, but it deserves to be noticed.

I didn't think we needed a '21 Jump Street,' but it's actually kind of funny.
March 15, 2012
Tatum, best known for syrupy romances and action movies, turns out to have crackerjack comic timing and Brie Larson and Dave Franco are standouts.
March 15, 2012
Miller and Lord clearly understand the push-and-pull and hyper-competitiveness that make guy friendships both complex and stupid.
March 15, 2012
It's that rare comedy that's funny throughout, with a hilarious story that hinges on the unlikely pairing of Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum.
March 15, 2012
The basic premise -- that these two are supposed to be high school age and siblings -- is funny, but the joke, as is true of many others in this movie, is replayed way too often.
March 15, 2012
21 Jump Street makes a virtue of low expectations, like an underachieving high school burnout coasting on his modest reserves of charm.
March 15, 2012
This cheerfully chaotic, gleefully vulgar action-comedy retread of the old television series has box-office success written all over it, and where's the harm? It's irresistibly funny until it isn't.

In its outrageous way, 21 Jump Street has real laughs.
