4.0 out of 5 stars They're going in WAY too deep, 10 July 2012
By 
This review is from: 21 Jump Street (DVD + UV Copy) [2012] (DVD)
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. Ice Cube (Boyz N The Hood) as Captain Dickson, was brilliant as the sterotypical black Captain, loud mouthed & quick with the quips, the best performance outside the lead pair. The teachers were pretty hilarious too, with Rob Riggle (The Other Guys) as the cocky, inmature gym teacher. Ellie Kemper (The Office) as the Chemistry teacher who has the hots for Tatum. The kids were cool too, Brie Larson (United States of Tara) & Dave Franco (Fright Night) although they didnt have as many good lines as the rest. Watch out for a certain Hollwood A lister's cameo near the end ;-)

In conclusion, 21 Jump Street is a good action comedy. The humour is rude & it's crude, so stay away if your easily offended. Reccomended.
