Review: 21 Jump Street

A pair of underachieving cops are sent back to a local high school to blend in and bring down a synthetic drug ring. In high school, Schmidt (Jonah Hill) was a dork and Jenko (Channing Tatum) was the popular jock. After graduation, both of them joined the police force and ended up as partners riding bicycles in the city park. Since they are young and look like high school students, they are assigned to an undercover unit to infiltrate a drug ring that is supplying high school students synthetic drugs.

Its been a while since I have seen a movie thats this funny, and these two guys pulled it off. 21 Jump Street has nothing to do with the original show from the 90s with Johnny Depp. The only major similarity is that they are young looking cops who infiltrate a high-school and it ends about there, but Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum make for a very interesting comedic duo, which even surprised me with their combination. There are moments that my popcorn went flying because I was laughing so hard, almost choked on some popcorn too, they were ridiculous in this movie and I loved it. Even you haven’t seen it then you should, its worth it but some scenes are gonna get censored because of some of the crazy things they do so watch it at home if you can.

21 Jump Street – The Movie! Trailer

Based on the non-comedy television show that launched Johnny Depp, the comedy film stars Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum as a mismatched pair of cops who join an undercover division that infiltrates a high school to crack down on a new drug. No word on whether Huggy Bear makes an appearance.

If anyone remembers this show, it was serious and it is what brought Johnny Depp to the top of the list and he was cool then just as cool as he is now. Now they are making a movie of it, and its just the concept of some guys who look too young to be cops and get thrown into a highschool to find out whats going and manage to do a few hilarious things on the way. Looks interesting, I for one am for sure going to watch it.

Get Him To The Greek – Trailer

Get-Him-to-the-Greek

Aaron Green (Hill) gets things done. The ambitious 24—year—old has been given a career—making assignment. His mission: Fly to London and escort a rock god to L.A.’s world famous Greek Theatre for the first—stop on a huge comeback tour. His record mogul boss, Sergio Roma (Sean Combs), gives him one warning: “The artist is the worst person on Earth. Turn your back on him at your own peril.”

British rocker Aldous Snow (Brand) is a brilliant musician, but due to a bad break up and nose—diving career, has fallen off the wagon and is now a drunken disaster. Weary of “yes men” and scared he’s entered the “greatest hits” moment in his career, Snow’s in the midst of a nihilistic downward spiral. When he learns his true love, model/pop star Jackie Q (Rose Byrne), is in Los Angeles, Aldous makes it his quest to win her back…right before kick—starting his world domination. As the countdown to the concert begins, one innocent young man must navigate a minefield of London drug smuggles, New York City brawls and Vegas lap dances to deliver his charge safe and, sort of, sound… all while trying to remain faithful to his med student girlfriend (Elisabeth Moss). He may have to coax, lie to, enable and party with Aldous, but Aaron will get him to the Greek.

An spin off from Forgetting Sarah Marshall, an Intern for a large music label came up with a company saving idea, to bring this huge rock star to the states but it doesn’t go as smoothly as expected. Jonah Hill (The Intern) and Russel Brand (The Rock Star) make for a very odd but fantastic pair, they are hilarious in the trailer and I’m assuming this is going to be a hell of a movie. Lots of comedy throughout the movie better then its predecessor, just check out the trailer for a few laughs.
