“22 Jump Street”: A Mini Movie Review

22 Jump Street

“After 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.” -Sony Pictures Entertainment

22JumpStreet

Sweet, sweet summertime. A time for watermelons, picnics, and bromantic comedies. Audiences across America who have been waiting for the next installment of Jonah / Channing fun after enjoying “21 Jump Street” will find that “22 Jump Street”, which opened in theaters nationwide yesterday, fits the bill. Molding into the same format as the first in the series of two (seriously why mess with a good thing, right?!), “22 Jump Street” plays up on the fact that it’s a completely unnecessary film which is exactly what makes it so great. It’s ridiculous but it’s so much fun and it works.

The jokes and thought put into the small details within the film make the movie something special. I imagine that it was a lot of fun being on set with the cast and crew of the film and their obvious enjoyment in creating the movie really came through on the big screen. For that reason, on my movie review scale from one to ten where one is the worst, five is the best, and ten is the worst again, I give “22 Jump Street” a 5.934831290 with an emoticon based sub-ranking of “Is that a duck face or a smile?!”

    I looks like a funny movies fro the preview but I have become slightly disappointed with comedy lately because it often seems they put the best moment in the trailer and then things kinda just fall flat. I will probably wait for this one until it a redbox or netflix view.

    I’m excited to see this! I love the special bromance that Jonah Hill & Channing Tatum have going on. They are hilarious together!
