Yes, there are other characters involved; but the nicest thing I can say about them is that they were forgettable.

There's a slightly wearing tyranny in the film's insatiable, gurning desire to be congratulated on its postmodern 'cleverness' at nearly every stage of its duration.
September 22, 2016
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.

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

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

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

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

I have a hard time believing the movie had a script that included dialogue. The movie has no character development. It's an embarrassment.

I was let down by 22 Jump Street, and it once again proves that sequels are often inferior to their predecessor for a number of reasons.

Just because you know you're a lame retread doesn't mean you're not a lame retread.

22 Jump Street is so embarrassed of its own existence that it lacks the conviction to actually do anything.
June 13, 2014
22 Jump Street has the same writers and directors as the first film. But it's not smart this time as much as it is clever, and that cleverness tips into spottiness and cynical self-congratulation.
June 13, 2014
In TV parlance, this is classic Jump the Shark criteria, and 22 Jump Street leaps and bounds away.
June 13, 2014
A 90 minute gay joke interrupted by 15 minutes of other stuff. The same movie as "21 Jump Street," but not as funny.
June 13, 2014
The only problem is, the doubts the characters jokingly express turn out to be all too valid.
June 13, 2014
An at-best-mediocre comedy with a few more laughs than the limp 2012 film..like so much contemporary comedy, isn't really about anything, except its own meta-ness.
June 13, 2014
...a rather worthless followup that makes the lackluster original look polished and captivating by comparison.
June 13, 2014
At what point is sarcasm just a cheap substitute for wit? Exactly when does joking about how all sequels are just lame, repetitive cash-grabs start to suggest that maybe yours is, too? Actually, in this case, about 40 minutes in.
June 12, 2014
Repetitive, juvenile and asinine. Yet another example of the decay of American comedy.
