Synopsis: In the action-comedy 21 Jump Street, Schmidt (Jonah Hill) and Jenko (Channing Tatum) are more than ready to leave their adolescent problems behind. Joining the police force and the secret Jump Street unit, they use their youthful appearances to go undercover in a local high school. As they trade in their guns and badges for backpacks, Schmidt and Jenko risk their lives to investigate a violent and dangerous drug ring. But they find that high school is nothing like they left it just a few years earlier - and neither expects that they will have to confront the terror and anxiety of being a teenager again and all the issues they thought they had left behind. -- (C) Sony Pictures

Critic Reviews

  • Richard Brody, New Yorker
    The late-eighties TV series is rebooted with jolts of sentiment, personal discovery, and wild comedy.
  • William Goss, Film.com
    The whole crew makes clear its affections for action cinema, trashy television and the YouTube generation alike while having fun at the expense of all three.
  • Stephen Whitty, Newark Star-Ledger
    A raucous, raunchy comedy.
  • Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
    This bracing new take on 21 Jump Street has a playful spark all its own. It's a blast.
  • Liam Lacey, Globe and Mail
    A try-anything, fitfully amusing muddle that wears its mocking cynicism a bit too proudly.
  • Tom Long, Detroit News
    "21" makes clear from the beginning it is gobbling up some pop culture refuse in the name of nothing more than making fun of it and having fun with it.
  • Kyle Smith, New York Post
    This is the funniest movie I've seen in more than a year.
  • Ann Hornaday, Washington Post
    "21 Jump Street" might be yet another product of Hollywood's recycling program, but it deserves to be noticed.
  • Richard Roeper, Richard Roeper.com
    I didn't think we needed a '21 Jump Street,' but it's actually kind of funny.
  • Betsy Sharkey, Los Angeles Times
    Miller and Lord clearly understand the push-and-pull and hyper-competitiveness that make guy friendships both complex and stupid.
