What to know

critics consensus

Boasting even more of the bromantic chemistry between its stars -- and even more of the goofy, good-natured humor that made its predecessor so much fun -- 22 Jump Street is the rare sequel that improves upon the original. Read critic reviews

  • If this sequel is guilty of anything it is of flaunting total excess in the name of comedy.

  • Phil Lord and Christopher Miller, have clearly seen their share of crappy unnecessary sequels, and want to assure us that 22 Jump Street will follow proudly in that tradition.

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

    June 26, 2014 | Full Review…
  • 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.

    June 25, 2014 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…
  • 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.

    June 19, 2014 | Full Review…
  • 22 Jump Street goes further than any other mainstream Hollywood comedy in normalising the emotional transactions between men.

    More laffs as these two Hope and Crosby their way through college and spring break. Big laffs, especially the fight with the lady drug dealer.

    Great. Not quite as good as the first film, but this is still definitely worth seeing. This is one hell of a funny movie.

    22 Jump Street definitely the kind of movie you'd normally hate. Let's face it, the original was decent, but it was not begging for a second outing. Lightning so rarely strikes twice in the same spot, yet somehow, this money-grabbing sequel hits all the right buttons to make it more than just an okay follow up to the original; it's actually pretty damn close to surpassing it. Crucially, it's Tatum and Hill that make this function correctly; they are each other's perfect foil for the obvious bromance and self-referential sequel gags. Being in on the joke more than makes up for the lack of originality here, but their easy going chemistry and comedic timing help make such an unnecessary sequel almost feel necessary. Considering its length, the fact that the jokes stick more often than not is the film's saving grace, buying the audience plenty of good will. Let's hope they can rest on their laurels.

    Satirical and fun, 22 Jump Street keeps the laughs coming. Schmidt and Jenko find themselves being sent undercover once again, this time to find the supplier of a new drug that's sweeping the local college campus. Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum deliver strong performances, and seem to have better chemistry than they had in the original. Additionally, the comedy is especially well-written, with lots of clever, self-referential humor about sequels. However, some the jokes are unnecessary crude and raunchy. And, the plot used a lot of cliches that add a generic quality to the film. Still, 22 Jump Street improves upon the original and delivers a smart and entertaining action/comedy.
