This has been on the 'to watch' list for ages, and for some reason I kept putting it off. Perhaps I thought I was too old to enjoy this kind of film anymore (I'm 30) but when there was nothing else to watch I finally gave in and put it in the player; why did I wait so long? It is exceptionally funny with many, many laugh out loud moments. I actually had tears in my eyes more than once and that just doesn't happen often.

The casting is spot on and Jonah Hill in particular manages to nail his character. His delivery and mannerisms are excellent and he's really becoming a favourite in our house.

It's something really quite special, I can't recommend it highly enough. Every once in a blue moon a comedy comes along that is a riot from start to finish and this film achieves this with aplomb.

I gave this film the highest ratings because it made me and my brother laugh so much. In my opinion this is one of the best comedies of 2012. The story is about two amateur american cops, who after nearly making an arrest get sent to 21 Jump Street. This when the action packed comedy filled with rib tickling humour really starts. I'm not going to say anymore about the film as it will ruin your enjoyment. But overall Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill made this my favourite film on release in 2012 because they played their roles so well also the witty humour what was used from start to finish.

In high school, Schmidt was a dork and Jenko was the popular jock.

After graduation, both of them joined the police force and ended up as partners riding bicycles in the city park.

Since they are young and look like high school students, they are assigned to an undercover unit to infiltrate a drug ring that is supplying high school students synthetic drugs....

Yes it's the movie version of that TV show that hardly anyone remembers in England but made Depp a star.

This goes down the Starsky and Hutch route, and goes funny all the way. It works on many levels, and instead of this being a gross out comedy, which it could have clearly gone down, it goes for subtle laughs and action, and relies on the cast chemistry to make it work.

It's Tatums best performance, he shines in this movie and outdoes anyone on the screen. He is easily the funniest thing, which is odd, because Hill is usually very good (here he is slightly annoying).

The story is predictable, as is the special cameo, and this sometimes hinders the flow of the film, but although the plot and narrative can be convoluted, the spin on changing the two leads status at school is a great inclusion to the film, as is the set piece which involves the two expecting things to explode, which sounds silly, but is funny.

So all in all, it's a film that shouldn't be funny, but it is, thanks to some great performances and a fresh feel to it all around.

Worth seeing.

Schmidt (Jonah Hill -Superbad) & Jenko (Channing Tatum -The Vow) are a pair of dumbass new police recruits that went to high school togher. Jenko was the athletic jock, in with the cool kids but his grades sucked. Schmidt was the insecure slim shady wannabe nerd, trying to be with the cool kids. They helped each other out in police graduation, and now they are going back to high school as undercover narcotics cops. The only difference is this etime around, they have no idea how getting in with the kids works, and they're real life experiences are being flipped upside down as they change roles & experience what the other went through, all while trying to infiltrate the dealer & find the suppliers of a new drug called HFS. It's one crazy ride.

Overall i found the film to be very funny & absoloutley crazy with it's humour. The fact that they try to pass themsleves off as brothers adds to it, with Tatum a 6ft+ man mountain of hunk & Hill a squat big titty nerd. This is picked up on in the film as well, to say they arent taking themselves seriously would be an understatement, they look like they are having a blast, and that's exactly how it comes across on the screen. The car chases & shootouts were a nice touch too, counter balancing the comedy in places.

I was very impressed with Tatum's performance, usually he fails to impress me, but in this comedy role he seemed to have found his calling. Jonah Hill was his usual witty self, blasting out those usualy witty remarks, he really had his work cut out to match Tatum me thinks.

The comedy leanings are sublime and will ensure this film has a dedicated fan base. The usual mark for a comedy film to be funny is about 6 or 7 laughs, 21 Jump Street reaches that landmark in the opening 20 minutes of its 109 minute running length. The opening third might be manically funny and it might never reach that zenith again, however that's not a slight, the opening third is just that funny. Any film that makes me cry with laughter ensures it has a place in my heart. That 5 minutes sequence where Hill and Tatum have to take the drugs to prove themselves is the most I have laughed at a new comedy since Black Dynamite.

However funny, 109 minutes might be a bit long for a comedy and the middle third might not flow as easy as the rest of the film, but this is a dark horse of a film that came out of nowhere and won over many. This is an excellent film, directed with a perfect balance of the surreal and the touching by its directors and a dazzling script by Michael Bacall. The comedy might not be to everyone's taste and it might occasionally take the joke too far, but those who enjoy a weirder style of comedy will enjoy the hell out of 21 Jump Street.
