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.

The mere fact that the filmmakers are aware that they're playing the role of a wholly unoriginal cog in the corporate machine does not really excuse their unoriginality.

Yes, the movie feels every bit the hot mess it pretends to be, but it's also as shrewd and careful a live-action sequel as you're likely to see this year.

The film's end credits feature more unbridled creativity than most films employ in their entireties.

22 Jump Street belongs to Hill and Tatum. Thankfully, their offbeat, odd-couple vibe is still ridiculously entertaining.

Magnificently stupid with flashes of brilliance. "22 Jump Street" is a zany action comedy that fizzles a bit at the end, but generates enough laughter to make it a very worthwhile sequel.

While "22 Jump Street" may not be quite as funny as its predecessor, it still manages to deliver a multitude of laughs over its stretched runtime, all while using pretty much the same premise.

If there's a funnier comedy this year, it'll have to be something quite special.

Provides another showcase for the ever-shlubby Hill and the ever-hunky Tatum

Despite some inevitable lulls, several scenes are as consistently funny as anything we've seen for years. And, like Sandra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy in last year's The Heat, the dialogue between the two leads makes up for the holes in the plot.

Full of inside jokes (hey, we're making a sequel) and fantastic performances, "22 Jump Street" is everything you want in a sequel and more.

Its adhering to formula nearly kills the film for that middle hour while the bromance plot thread is arguably based in latent homophobia.

While this film is dominated by vulgar, slapstick humor, it is not exactly brain dead. There is a certain self-aware, self-mocking quality to it. It also helps that the characters are basically good guys.

It doesn't disguise its intention as a blockbuster summer sequel that's more financially than creatively motivated.

This is a film that is creative enough... to mock its own lack of creativity.

Proving that sometimes the same joke is funnier the second time around, Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum return for a major serving of big, broad, stupid laughs.

All you really need to know is that it's the cleverest sequel to a dumb movie of all time.

The jokes are fresh and more often than not manage to produce some big laughs.

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

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.
