Synopsis


21 Jump Street
The television series that shot Johnny Depp to stardom makes the leap to the big screen in this reboot starring Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum. Schmidt (Hill) and Jenko (Tatum) have the kind of faces that could let them pass for teenagers. Eager to prove themselves as effective policemen, the pair join the Jump Street program and go undercover to investigate a high-school drug ring. Now, the only thing more daunting than the prospect of taking on violent adolescent dope slingers is the possibility of experiencing the torture of their teenage years all over again. Ice Cube, Brie Larson, and Rob Riggle co-star. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

    I remember watching 21 Jump Street as a youngster in the 1980's. I loved it when it was on network television. The premise: a bunch of young looking 20 something detectives pose as high school students as they attempt to curb the criminal activity that is perpetrated by high school students. This show became a career launching pad for many of the principle characters, including the venerable and legendary Johnny Depp. However, the show has become pretty dated, and I doubt that I could watch it with the same enthusiasm now that I'm in my thirties. And when I heard that they were remaking this television show for the big screen, I nearly gagged. But after seeing the movie remake with Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill, I have to say that I am so happy that I went against my instincts and saw this film. It is the funniest movie that I have seen in a long time. I actually laughed out loud while watching this movie, and it has been a long time since I have laughed out loud during any film. The plot of the movie is not difficult to follow. Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill are enemies in high school; with Channing Tatum being the popular high school jock(Jenko), while Jonah Hill is the socially awkward and geeky Eminem look-a-like(Schmidt). A few years after they graduate from high school, they enroll in the police academy. While at the academy, they discover that Schmidt is able to master the academic part of the training and Jenko is able to master the physical aspect of the police training. Jenko and Schmidt soon realize that if they are to make it past their respective exams, they are going to have to help one another. Their decision to cooperate with each other leads to a special friendship, and after graduating from the academy they are able to secure assignments in the same police unit. Jenko and Schmidt prove to be inept as police officers in the bike unit, but they are given a second chance as undercover police officers. Their mission: infiltrate a drug operation in a high school that is run by a smarmy high school senior played by David Franco(James Franco's brother). Here the roles of Jenk and Schmidt are reversed. It is Jenko who is the social outcast while Schmidt is the cool insider. Turns out that in the year 2012 it is okay to be openly gay, carry your backpack using both straps, openly campaign for the preservation of the environment, and do well in school-which are all of the traits that Jenko used to hate about Schmidt. While they are trying to infiltrate the drug operation, Schmidt's popularity causes a rift in their friendship; and as their relationship collapses, so does their work as undercover officers. Eventually their antagonistic supervisor(played by Ice Cube!!!) has to fire them, and all hope seems to be lost for the two former friends. It does not take long for Jenko and Schmidt to become friends again; and with their friendship repaired they are able to prove their worth as officers through their special form of vigilantism. As I've said before, Channing Tatum is really funny in this film. Jonah Hill and Ice Cube also deliver some really good liners as well. Although a remake, the film is original in its execution of the conventional screenplay. I highly recommend this film. And I have to say that if you choose to see this movie, you will be greeted with a really nice surprise near the end.

    What happens when you take an overweight, intelligent, socially awkward “adult” and put him in the same police academy with same emotionally stunted athlete who made his life miserable all through high school? Morton Schmidt (played by Jonah Hill) had dyed-blonde hair and braces in the twelfth grade so, naturally, when he attempted to ask out his high school crush, he choked and was shot down anyway. While this was devastating to him, Greg Jenko (played by Channing Tatum) found it hysterical and made no effort to hide it. The shoe was eventually on the other foot, however, when the principal revealed that Jenko (Tatum) would not be allowed to graduate. Years later, in the police academy, Schmidt (Hill) and Jenko meet again, they decide to help each other overcome their respective shortcomings and, in so doing, graduate. But a screw-up results in their first arrest being invalidated and, as punishment, they’re reassigned to a program that was discontinued in the 80’s and brought back because “the guys upstairs ran out of ideas years ago”. Their new headquarters: 21 Jump Street. Under the direction of their captain (Ice Cube), they’re sent undercover as high school students to find the supplier of a new drug that recently caused the death of a white high school student after he’d posted a video of himself under the influence of said drug and posted it on YouTube. The inside jokes about the basis for this movie being a television program from the 80’s and cameo appearances from two former cast members are hilarious. Also entertaining is the sharp contrast in youth culture between today and ten years ago. Hill is basically playing a role he’s played several times before, ditto for Tatum, and Ice Cube, playing a role that even the cast admits is cliché, is fantastic. If you haven’t already, see this movie.

    I've never been a fan of Channing Tatum for an assorted number of reasons. My principle reason for my disliking Channing Tatum is his lack of acting talent. His deficiencies as an actor were made apparent in every genre of film. Ever since he broke onto the scene with "Step Up",he has delivered his signature one-note performance in every movie in which he has been cast. And it seemed as if he would never get any better. I was ready to give up on him until I read the reviews for "21 Jump Street". Not only was the movie supposed to be well done, but Mr. One Note Channing Tatum was supposed to have turned in one of his best performances as well. Out of a morbid sense of curiosity, I had to see the movie for myself; and after nearly two hours of continuous guffawing, I left the theatre with a new sense of hope. Channing Tatum may have found his niche as a movie actor: he can be a funny man. Channing Tatum is......funny.

    21 Jump Street... It's going to deliver what you are guaranteed and have you laughing out loud! Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum are undercover pals are going to high school and pretty much it becomes an enjoyable, hilarious and unforgettable ride. The film does a give a great tribute to the ever classic "Buddy Cop" genre and does a great job of making fun of itself: Openly poking fun at its cast or plot and giving those subtle jokes to other films of the genre. Just a great film to a lot of laughs and fun out of, plus you get it for a great price and even get a digital copy, so you watch anywhere at anytime.

    This movie often goes on sale for around $5 and it's a great value at that price. Movie-wise, it was much better than I expected and plays as a raunchy comedy. Whatever you may remember about the 21 jump street tv show, just discard that as the only similarity is the notion of undercover cops in high school. Blu-ray wise, the video and audio quality is very good and there are a lot of extra features like 30 min of deleted scenes, audio commentary with the main actors and directors, and a bunch of short features.

    The acting is horrible, the characters' actions make no sense, and the entire plot is nonsensical. This movie does nothing to suspend your disbelief, making it difficult to find the humor in most of the antics that go on. There is almost nothing that happens in this movie that would translate to real world events; however, the movie doesn't do anything to make that clear. It takes its self way too seriously, killing the comedy and having punchlines that are either too obvious, or too off the mark to be funny.

    I wasn't expecting much from this movie; comedic remakes of old TV shows (Chips, Baywatch, Dukes of Hazzard, ad nauseum) tend to be depressingly flat and lame. But I really enjoyed 21 Jump Street, and the unexpected chemistry between Tatum and Hill. Ice Cube and the (SPOILER) cameo are icing on the cake. Fun flick!

    I thought the trailers for 21 Jump Street made it look terrible, but friends and family told me that I had to see it. I was surprised to find that the movie is hilarious. Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill are adorable together, and the writing is over the top and witty. Directors Lord and Miller bring the same creativity to a live action feature that they brought to Cloudy With A Chance of Meatballs. I promise that you will laugh the whole way through!
