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.
