Movie Info

In the action-comedy 21 Jump Street, Schmidt (Jonah Hill) and Jenko (Channing Tatum) are more than ready to leave their adolescent problems behind. Joining the police force and the secret Jump Street unit, they use their youthful appearances to go undercover in a local high school. As they trade in their guns and badges for backpacks, Schmidt and Jenko risk their lives to investigate a violent and dangerous drug ring. But they find that high school is nothing like they left it just a few years

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

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.

"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.

A lot smarter and a lot funnier than it has any real right to be.

Chaotic and far-fetched yet funny enough to have audiences rolling in the aisles.

Given the broad drama of the series, their movie should be full of big ideas, and instead settles for redundant gags involving drugs, guns, and high school cliques.

21 Jump Street gets the remake job done with tongue-in-cheek style & plenty of outrageous moments.

September 30, 2012 Full Review Source: ScreenRant

Because of Bacall's skill at writing great comedic material and Lord's and Miller's talent behind the camera, "21 Jump Street" became more than what it originally appeared to be, which is a surprise I'm always grateful for.

September 16, 2012 Full Review Source:

21 Jump Street takes the basic concept of the original series, and uses it to create an action/comedy that is not only palatable to modern audiences, but appealing as well.

September 15, 2012 Full Review Source: We Got This Covered

Co-written, produced by, and stars Jonah Hill, who took exactly the right attitude towards the movie: He and his costar Channing Tatum embraced the stereotypes, laughed at themselves, and came up with a surprisingly funny film.

21 Jump Street is a smartly stupid buddy comedy that plays with the ridiculousness of its set-up.

Interchangeable with dozens of other "dude" comedies that have come before it.

...feels more like a guerrilla stunt than a soulless and cynical cash grab. Hooray for Hollywood, I guess.

Slick and funny as hell, 21 Jump Street is one of the best comedies of the year.

A raucous, entertaining, and incredibly funny film that respects the premise of the original series...

For an action comedy, "21 Jump Street" had less action or comedy than I expected. It felt as if I spent too much time waiting for something to happen-either for a joke to fire, or a pistol.

The best thing that can be said for it is that it never coasts on just one type of joke; funny in execution, not just in concept.

June 22, 2012 Full Review Source: Film Experience
Film Experience

A floppy cross of high-school movie and buddy-cop comedy. Overdoses on flaccid penis and vagina 'jokes,' indulges in the ain't-this-cool?!ness of a cop-action flick, and passes out on the cliché-couch of bromance.

The movie is perfectly pleasant, a smidgen too aware of itself but consistently sharp.

April 30, 2012 Full Review Source:

While the film struggles at the start as Tatum and Hill share little chemistry, they improve minute by minute and are one of the shining lights by the end, their journey boasting a surprising emotional pull.

Feels like it's doing something new with the teen genre, while still acknowledging its debt to the classics that came before it.

I laughed so hard so many times in this movie. Some scenes are ridiculously stupid and others are surprisingly really smart. In addition, Hill and Tatum have a great chemistry that makes their exchanges especially entertaining. 21 Jump Street makes up for flaws in its story by being highly enjoyable and absolutely hysterical.

This movie was absolutely hilarious, and to its credit, wove in a real sense of humour about the ridiculousness of its mere existence; it had me from the moment that the police chief explained away the placement of the two delinquent cop heroes in the high school enforcement project with a comment about how the people who run this stuff lack creativity and are always resurrecting some lame program from the past and trying to pass it off as new (while Hill and Tatum listen, completely straight-faced). It's a buddy-cop, reluctant partner, action-comedy that's jammed with wise cracks, slapstick and mistaken identity, not to mention plenty more winks at the camera - and on top of it all, it tells a decent story about popularity, achievement and friendship. One of those rare comedies I know I could watch a hundred times, and among the most sadly overlooked films of 2012.
