I don't laugh during movies, which is why I was surprised I had to wipe my eyes from laughing so hard during the entire movie.  Jonah Hill is absolutely fantastic and Channing Tatum seems like he took some serious acting classes.  This is one of those movies where you will be able to watch over and over and quote for life.  I think this has to go into my top 5 funniest movies I've seen next to A Christmas Story and Step Brothers.  This movie is definitely worth the $10 at the box office and the $21.99 when it comes out on DVD.  I'm not a fan of sequels but if they made a second 21 Jump Street with all the same characters I would be first in line for it.  

The only thing I had a problem was with the fact Ron Swanson was not in it more. 

What did you think of this review?

Ok, let’s get some things out of the way. Usually comedies are a low priority for me to see in theaters. Why? Because they are usually more fun to see with a lot of pizza and beer. I am not too fond of Channing Tatum. Why? I dunno, I never cared for the roles he played save for “The Eagle”. Jonah Hill I can do with, after all, I need to see him in a role after he had lost all that weight. I am also not fond of movies that revamps a TV show, I mean they try to sneak this shit up …

For all my readers who are unsure of where this movie came from you may not be able to appreciate Nice Offerman's role. As the police captain for rookie cops Schmidt and Jenko, played by Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum respectively, he tells them the department is reviving a program they used back in the eighties. This is just one of the many nods to both the industry and the source material. It was also one of the many laugh out loud moments of this movie. It is easy to be suspect of a movie …

*** out of ****    "21 Jump Street" is one of those comedies - one of those good, honest, thoroughly funny comedies - that appeals to at least two generations and treats them as its target audience. In this case, it's the adults and the older teens; and the title of the film will most likely mean something to the former and not the latter. In case you didn't know, "21 Jump Street" was a popular crime drama series that ran from 1987 to 1991. It's probably best known for kick-starting …

Star Rating:         21 Jump Street treads on thin ice in an early scene where it’s explained that the police department has revived a specialty division that started in the 1980s, that it’s part of a trend of resurrecting and modernizing old programs due to a lack of original ideas, and that they’re hoping the public won’t notice. Nothing threatens to ruin a movie faster than winking at the audience in a showy display of self-referential humor. …

Back in 1987, the fledgling Fox Network debuted, offering entertainment on Saturday and Sunday evenings aimed at a younger audience. One of the network’s first breakout shows was a police drama with young cops and plenty of action, a show named 21 Jump Street. The show featured a cast of largely unknowns who quickly bolted to overnight notoriety, most notably its star Johnny Depp who, much to his chagrin, became a pinup boy and sex symbol for the show. The show mixed humor, action, and romance. …

         By Joan Alperin Schwartz      What would you do if you had the chance to go back to high school and do it all over again?   Well, two bumbling rookie cops, Schmidt (Jonah Hill) and Jenko (Channing Tatum) get that chance when they're assigned to the long time dormant 21 Jump Street unit led by the perpetually pissed off Captain Dickson (Ice Cube)      Their mission:  Go back to …
