Reviews
By miles the best comedy of the year
From start to finish, I had a massive grin whilst watching this film. I have to say, I can't have been more impressed. Never for a second was I bored, and I burst out laughing at every joke, and I have to say, there's not many films I can say that about.

Sure, for more mature audiences the dick jokes and sight of teens partying might put them off the fun, but teens themselves will be impossibly thrilled. It's cleverly written and brilliantly stylised, and never lets up, not for a second.

Tatum and Hill work brilliantly together, and Johnny Depp's cameo (which I was not expecting and was pleasantly surprised by) was a real treat. And even the comedic car chases and shoot-outs had me on the edge of my seat, as well as laughing my ass off.

Another good point is the soundtrack: it's exciting and has a kind of retro 1980's feel, though it isn't too retro for modern audiences.

Overall, 21 Jump Street is perfect for teen or fun-loving audiences, but people looking for something serious won't be so thrilled. I enjoyed it so much.

Overall: 9.6/10

See it if you liked: Kick-Ass (2010), Hot Fuzz (2007), Superbad (2007), Scott Pilgrim vs the World (2010)

disgusting unfunny filth
I'll make this short and sweet as I'm not even sure IMDb will allow me to post a review of what may be seen as a minority opinion.

Aside from being overall a waste of time and not funny, what really disgusted me is there are a ton of crude gay oral sex references in this film. Literally, it's as if the writers were paid on a 100% commission to insert as many explicit and implicit gay oral jokes or innuendo into the film as possible. The film projects the image that virtually most of the characters in the film harbor gay urges. I've noticed this self deprecating punch line is being inserted into quite a bit of comedies.

Spoilers: The scene towards the end where the one character has his privates shot off and then has to pick it up with his mouth because he is handcuffed is revolting, disgusting, not funny and should have never made it past the censors. In an earlier scene a character makes a crack about forcing another to wear a snorkel mask and that they will then defecate into it. This is not funny, it's disgusting and sophomoric at best.

In closing, Hollywood please stop with the disgusting bathroom humor and the relentless gay agenda. Also, knock it off with the fake reviews on here, there's no way this piece of garbage is a 7.6, me personally i would give it zero stars if i could,but i would bet without the fake reviews this would rate a 4.0 Same with that sleep inducing garbage from last year: "Drive".

Fun In High School
The TV series of 21 Jump Street is always remembered as one of Johnny Depp's early performances. The concept is a bit interesting. At first glance, this movie looks like it's just another mediocre raucous comedy, but it turns out to be a clever one. It's quite a surprise. It stays loyal to its roots except it added some raunchiness and slapstick humor to the story. It's a new kind of 21 Jump Street that is much more fun.

I'm not saying it's better than the TV series though. Both are pretty interesting but this one is definitely aiming as a comedy. The film is just crazy stuff with crazy characters living in an absurd setting. The original premise remains but with some buddy comedy elements, and raunchy and slapstick humor. Surprisingly, it works better to the plot. The humor is clever and quite hilarious. These jokes are greatly executed by the stars. Jonah Hill is always a brilliant comedian. Channing Tatum finally plays a none bland character. His chemistry with Hill shines to the film. While the others, Ice Cube hams it up a little but he can provide some laughs. Rob Riggle is just being Rob Riggle. Dave Franco's role here kind of reminds me of his role in Fright Night but he's pretty good with it.

The direction is snappy and stylish. The action is fun but I don't think anybody cares about that. The main point of this film is High School and the relationship between Schmidt and Jenko. It shows how the new high school turned their lives upside down. They can't stop playing with their antics on their mission. There is a drama between them. Most of it played as a joke but the heart is always there.

All turns out to be pretty well in this film even with all the changes and the absurdity. It's smart, sweet, hilarious, and fun. The fans of the TV series may still get a surprise while they miss the none mad Captain Jenko and the charms of the show. This film is too crazy and absurd but in a clever way. I haven't enjoyed a comedy like this in a while. 21 Jump Street is undeniably fun and it's probably one of the best comedies of the year.

Quality film in terms of action, story and especially comedy.
So I just came back from watching "21 Jump Street" and was seriously impressed with not only how funny It was, (For the most part) but also how smart it was, in terms of understanding what young people are like today and how they put a spin on certain scenarios.

I'm assuming you already know the story as this review will most likely not be the first you read, so I will just skip to what I thought. Let me get one thing clear, skinny Jonah Hill is just as funny as fat Jonah Hill. Weight is not relevant to comedy unless it relies mostly on slapstick humour, which this film only has touches of. There were so many moments to pick from where I laughed, but by far the funniest scene Is Channing Tatum and Hill on drugs.

I was Impressed with how surprisingly good everyone acted in this, as generally a film packed with comedy has less focus on good acting. Obviously it's far from Oscar worthy, but I felt myself getting really involved In the film, unlike a comedy such as step brothers, which I saw more as a scenario for making joke after joke.

There are only a couple of minor things I have to say about this. The first being that the comedy falls a bit flatter during the final act. Don't get me wrong, I still laughed in places, but the pumping out of good jokes was much more consistent in the first half of the film. Nevertheless, still a hilarious film. The second thing was a few predictable clichés that I saw coming, but I can let that slide because most films these days have them.

Overall the best comedy I've seen so far this year. I certainly recommend it to anyone who Is a fan of the original "21 Jump Street", a fan of Jonah Hill and just generally a fan of good comedies.

Very Comedy, I See It.
I didn't want to rent it because I'm not a huge fan of Channing Tatum. But, I rented it anyway and this movie is hilarious. I laughed hard, like, very hard. There were no boring moments, and it was an easy plot to follow. I even liked Channing Tatum in this movie a lot. This movie was such a surprise to be honest. They took all the stereotypical setups for jokes, and completely turned them around. Very funny flick.

Another good scene is when they have the play and Channing and Jonah have that fight. I just wouldn't recommend younger kids to watch. It can be very inappropriate and they wouldn't understand what the movie is about. Other then that this movie is a must see!!

Violence and profanity isn't funny
The target audience for this one seems to be high school boys. The well deserved R rating presents a challenge to get them into the theater.

While comedy is subjective, and there are some laughs, the repeated foul language and shooting people isn't funny.

Jonah Hill won't get an award nomination for this performance. He puts on the same braces that Ben Stiller wore in "Something About Mary" a far better comedy. The overall average acting is exposed in a two minute cameo by one of the best actors of our time.

The end credit sequence is a total assault on the senses. No need to rush out to see this. It will be just as bad on DVD or cable shortly.

Touche...
Precursor: I just moved back into town two days ago and had made plans to see one of my old friends tonight. I did not want to see this movie, and wouldn't have under any other circumstances but my friend really wanted to and the tickets were free so I went.

Review itself: This is of no disrespect to Jonah Hill, his fashion of humor or his fans at all, but I, personally have grown tired of what seems to now be a plethora of wanna be Hangover and Superbad's. (The success of Project X seriously worries me...). Anyways, having that mind set approaching tonight and considering the fact I didn't laugh once during the 21 JS trailer, green or red band... I really wasn't expecting all that much out of the experience aside from leaving the house and catching up with a buddy.

But damn.

I honestly thought this movie was great. Yes, there were parts I wasn't fond of... a bit of the dialogue seemed to me to be vulgar strictly for the sake of being vulgar... there was the usual expected Jonah Hill trademarked myriad of penis jokes and one extremely unnecessary shock gag but the majority of the movie was, to me, surprisingly satirical/smart/relevant in today's society, self-aware, and situationally hilarious. Even the dumbest and most profane of this movie's jokes and clichés seemed to know that they were such and were given the proper comedic build up/context to at least warrant a chuckle. This movie had some surprisingly clever dialogue throughout and some of the best supporting characters I've seen in recent comedies (Ice Cube, The Principal, etc..) What really stood out to me though was the editing. 21 Jump Street features some of the most awkwardly humorous camera shot transitions, scene changes and music integration. Despite it's faults, I found this to be a damn hard movie to hate, and would recommend it to anyone looking for a fun weekend movie.

All in all... genuine, clever, vulgar yet respectable comedy with some heart.

IMO a very good career move for both Hill and Tatum.

Stoked for the sequel.

Hilarious movie that makes fun of everything, including itself
Going into this film, I was a bit skeptic. I'm not a fan of most American 'modern' comedies and I dislike high school comedies in general, so I expected to dislike this one to. But fortunately I was pleasantly surprised!

The movie kicks of with both Schmidt (Jonah Hill) and Jenko (Channing Tatum) in high school, were Schmidt is being the big loser and Jenko the super popular kid. Fast forward 7 years and we both find them training to be a cop. Since Jenko has the mussel but lacks the brains, he teams up with Schmidt who scores A's on the theory but lacks the physical strength. They both made it to be police officers but when they screw over their first arrest, because Jenko couldn't remember the rights he has to read to the guy he arrests :D, they are send to 21 Jump Street for a 'special mission'. Here we meet Captain Dickson (Ice Cube) who assigns them to be undercover cops in a high school, to act like high school students and find out were these new lethal drugs are coming from. Hilarity starts when they have their roles reversed and Jenko is stuck with the nerds and Schmidt is suddenly a very popular guy. Will the two still remember to actually act as cops and solve the drug dealer problem or just relive their high school years?

The funniest thing about 21 Jump Street is that both Jenko and Schmidt don't look like teenagers at all which causes all kind of weird situations. It's hilarious when they try to blend in but fail utterly because it isn't 2005 anymore. I like how they mix typical high school humor with police movie clichés and make fun of both genres.

I liked both Hill and Tatum in this one, there was good chemistry between the characters and they really looked like partners. The supporting cast also did a good job, especially Rob Riggle as the crazy Mr. Walters. I'm having the opinion that Ice Cube cannot act, but he was descent in this movie. And it was hard to screw up the part he had, just swear a lot should be easy for a guy like him, right? (He is also referenced in the soundtrack in the form of a N.W.A. track)

The only problems I had with this movie is that I didn't like the parts were there is to much high school stuff going on and in the final act the movie get's slightly more serious. But the action scenes are great, especially the car chase with Jonah Hill dressed as Peter Pan.. :P I also could do with less dick jokes but hey, it's still an American comedy.. ;)

So do check this one out if you could use a laugh and love to see some action as well.

Gets Old Fast (spoilers)
This movie seems to be confused as to whether it was supposed to be an action movie or a comedy and fails to achieve either. It isn't really very funny at all and it drags too much to be exciting. It has other problems as well.

The jokes try to hard to be hip and end up being just plays on stereotypes. For example, in a misguided attempt to look cool one of the characters punches a guy for being nerdy. The victim mistakenly believes he was punched because he is black and gay which makes the cop look uncool. In another example, throughout the movie the head of the jump street program acts like a stereotypical bad tempered black cop, even calling himself that. It is vaguely amusing the first time, but the next umpteen times it gets a little lame as do the frequent jokes about the guys not looking like teenagers. The visual and verbal humor are like this through the whole movie.

The movie portrays alcohol and drug use as a funny joke. It shows scenes of the cops high on the supposedly deadly drug they are supposed to be in high school stopping. It shows them buying booze for an underage party and it's supposed to be funny because they have to use false IDs. It shows them stealing marijuana from the evidence lockup to share with the kids. I know it's a comedy not a message movie, but this is just not funny. To top it off, they don't even get reprimanded for any of the illegal things they do from giving drugs to minor to engaging in a high speed chase on a freeway, to reckless discharge of firearms, to taking further police actions when technically fired.

The action is boring. The interminably long scenes of bicycle, car, and limousine chases do not even begin to liven up this bomb. They are not interesting.

The juvenile behavior the two leads exhibit ruins any dramatic elements of the movie. They don't act like two adults pretending to be kids, they act more like two kids pretending to be cops.

I used to watch the 21 Jump Street series and it was a serious drama about serious issues like homosexual bullying, drugs, suicide, and peer pressure. It may have been a little soap operish at times, but it was dramatic and interesting. I think it deserved more respect than this.
