Review: 22 Jump Street

22_jump_street-wideAfter making their way through high school (twice), big changes are in store for officers Schmidt (Jonah Hill) and Jenko (Channing Tatum) when they go deep undercover at a local college. But when Jenko meets a kindred spirit on the football team, and Schmidt infiltrates the bohemian art major scene, they begin to question their partnership. Now they don’t have to just crack the case – they have to figure out if they can have a mature relationship. If these two overgrown adolescents can grow from freshmen into real men, college might be the best thing that ever happened to them.

So far Sony telling us what it is!

22-Jump-Street-5What makes this movie so incredibly watchable is the utter nonsense of the two main characters. Hill and Tatum are making doofus moments much like in the first movie but sequels sometimes sure are better. They both seem to truly have fun together in- and outside of the movie.

And whether it is a college, a party or a football-game for them to get undercover with, it will all result in a massive hysteria due to these two clumsy fools!

What makes it extra special for the folks old enough to remember seeing the Johnny Depp version on TV two decades ago, is the fact that there are a couple of wink/nudge to those original yet less hilarious TV-series.

Verdict: if you wanna have fun with a GOOD comedy, stop looking and get this one asap! And do NOT forget to get the BluRay because the extra footage as well as the extra’s are worth it!

 

Thanks to Sony Pictures for the review copy.

Richard is the driving force behind Comics for Sinners. His love and admiration for female comic book characters is virtually unparalleled, which immediately explains his biggest 'sin': his Hot Mummy fetish. This sketchbook theme is philogynistic in nature and even the source of his WIP comic book series "The Sisterhood".
