Given that this film is just another in a long line of Hollywoodremakes that don't need to be remade, as well as it coming fromdirectorial duo Chris Miller and Phil Lord whose only previous featureis the questionable Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs, it is safe tosay that I was feeling pretty dubious on entering the cinema. However Iemerged at the end feeling more than pleasantly surprised with whatturned out to be a fun, fresh and hilarious buddy-cop movie thatdoesn't take itself too seriously. Once natural enemies in high school, jock Jenko (Channing Tatum) andnerd Schmidt (Jonah Hill) find themselves together in police academyand decide to form a mutually beneficial relationship in order to passtheir exams. It's the classic exchange, Jenko needs Schmidt's brainsand Schmidt needs help in the physical department. Upon graduating, thepair make a spectacular cock up of their first arrest and consequentlyland themselves in the 21 Jump Street programme. For those who haveheard anything about the TV show will know that the programmespecialises in young looking cops going undercover to unearth youthcrime in high schools and the like. The pair are understandablycritical of their new posts (who wants to go through high school morethan once?) and the film is humorously self-referential making fun ofitself when the operations' leader (Ice Cube) rants that the unit is ajust rehashed plan from the 80â²s because the higher ups couldn't comeup with anything better. Just like Hollywood!For the rest of this review please visit my blog and let me know whatyou think!: http://movielabyrinth.blogspot.com/2012/03/21-jump-street-remake-worth-watch.html

Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill play the dimwit cop duo who are sent back to their high school to pose as students in order to root out a drugs ring.

You'd expect at 21 Jump Street remake to suck, and this film, for all its obviousness in delivery, doesn't.

I didn't like that movie but it has many great jokes, definitely. Ihave never seen old TV series "21 Jump Street" with Johnny Depp and Ican't compare its with the new version unfortunately. In my glance,main disadvantage of that film is vulgar humor that irritates mestrongly. After every really funny joke next appearing three silly andit's regrettable because there are good plot, good actors but it seemsto me some jokes in this film written special for morons. Why? I don'tunderstand. I'm not a prude, I like Kevin Smith, American Pie forexample, but everything should be in moderation and harmoniously. "21Jump Street" is clearly not that case, unfortunately.

The idea to play the concept for laughs is an inspired one, and Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum mine the material for all the crass, R-rated comedy that it's worth.

"21 Jump Street" was probably one of the best movie adaptations I haveever seen. It was wildly funny, well written, definitely raunchy( butnot over the too.) I was going into the movie theaters expecting a veryfunny time. And that's all I got ! And not your average comedy either;just jokes and a silly plot. No, this movie was amazingly funny, thanksto a brilliant cast, good script, and wonderful imagination, on how tomake a 80's television show come to life on the big screen. The lastgreat comedy of this magnitude was none other than "The Hangover".Jonah Hill also seems to prove his immaculate talent and promises thathim in a good duo, has potential for the years best comedy. Anyone whowatches this film, young or old, is guaranteed one of the best times inthe theaters this year! Besides the comedy, this movie has good actionand definitely no juvenile jokes; this movie is the ideal comedy. Andalso, to my surprise, Channing Tatum did a great job in the movie; arole I honestly didn't believe he could deliver, but did. Personallythis movie was one of my favorite movies of 2012 so far

Against all odds, 21 Jump Street is an immensely enjoyable, frequently hilarious film.

Two rookie police officers, who both went to high school together, onepopular and one described as a jerk, graduate and years later wind upat the police academy.The film is just as much about how the two build a relationship anddiscover themselves whether it be in the drama or chemistry class. Themovie tries to show you that during difficult circumstances, one canpersevere.That being said, the film is still a comedy in how these two officersgo undercover to a high school to uncover a drug ring there. Theresults are most surprising, but in today's world anything goes.Ice Cube co-stars as a no nonsense head of their unit. Too much cursingis shown in this film. It does detract somewhat from the story.

A wickedly enjoyable blast of a movie. An excellent and hilariouscomedy thats raunchy, rude and extremely entertaining. A full-out funand explosive action-packed comedy thats over the top with greatcharacter moments and zany antics. It takes the classic 80's series andre-vamps it to be a wildly hysterical spoof. This is the funniest moviei have seen this year so far. One of the most enjoyable buddy comediesin years. Hill and Tatum are a comic dream team, they are just a blastto watch. Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill are outragious together, theyare the most surprising and awesome comedy team in a long time. IceCude is absolutely hilarious, he's never been funnier. Johnny Deppreturns to his TV role in a hilarious cameo that just adds to the fun.This movie is just pure non-stop fun from start to finish. 8/10

I'm going to say this first that I haven't watched the original 21 JumpStreet this is just from my Point of view for people who are justwatching the movie who are interested in.I was looking at the trailer before it came out, seems like a greatplot however it can fail miserably if done terribly. THIS COULD POSSIBLY BE A SPOILER Well the whole movie was done well, Ibelieve this movie is trying to catch up to today's generation with howmuch it has changed from back then. Such as the drugs, clichÃ©s, ,worldproblems, etc. THIS COULD POSSIBLY BE A SPOILER I was laughing most of the time though some jokes were not funny, butoverall it was a fun time watching the movie with my friends. I had to admit that some scenes didn't really stay in my head for solong and is not entirely super memorable compared to the juggernautsfrom years. However, this was a remake and I personally think is one ofthose movies that are better than the ones in the theatre at themoment. If you get the chance to see it, go see it.7.8/10

With its nice combination of raunchy teen comedy and buddy cop bromance, 21 Jump Street successfully creates its own identity with no intention on copying the dynamic of the hit TV show that inspired it.

Pickles and ice cream. Bacon and cupcakes. Chocolate and potato chips. Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill. Some pairings shouldn't work, yet somehow the result is delicious.

Before this movie, I wasn't a fan of Jonah Hill, and especially notChanning Tatum. When I heard this movie was being released, I thoughtthey got Tatum, to attract the female crowd, and Hill to attract theaverage guy. After watching this, I found this was not the case. Thiswas the first time in a while where this new age comedy struck me ashumorous. The thing that appealed to me most, was how it "made fun of"My generation. "the teen crowed". Going back to school, seeing thestereotypical new age kids, was funny for me. The acting on both partswere above average, and both actors complimented each others role. Idon't want to say this was an original storyline, but I couldn't tellthat it was a branch off of another film like an Adam sandler movie isnowadays. I do believe there will be a sequel, as a little cliffhanger, (as seen in many comedies) is put at the end. I would say thatI would gladly go and spend money to see it.

So if you like Jonah Hill and comedies with really great cameoappearances, I think you would definitely like this film.I must admit I expected this to be at the same standard as maybe TheChange-Up or The Hangover Part II which weren't terrible movies, butthey weren't the funniest movies I have seen either. This movie is moreon par with The Hangover (the first installment), Superbad andAnchorman.The chemistry between Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum is brilliant, andit's nice to see Tatum in something other than his standard rom-com or"rom" setting. I was already laughing from the first scene, which isgenerally hard to do and the humour was the correct balance of wit andslapstick. There were actually a lot more clever jokes than I expectedand there were some scenes were I couldn't even control my laughter ina full cinema.All in all, I'm not saying this movie is for everyone but the way Iwould tell you to see it is if you like Jonah Hill's ridiculousdialogue with sometimes unnecessary swears and you have no expectationsof it being anything like the original TV show, I would definitelyrecommend this one! Best comedy film I've seen at the cinema in 2012.

This is not a property requiring respect and devotion to the source material to satisfy longtime fans, so the filmmakers wisely make a "21 Jump Street" all their own.

I really don't get the the Jonah Hill thing, I don't find him/hismovies very funny nor am I into the raunchy teen sex films that seeemall the rage, so I avoided this in the theater. Then, one day, I was ona plane, and since I loved the original series, I decided to watchit......If you think of it as a satire of the original show and remember thatit's probably aimed at 14 yr old boys, yes it's kind of funny.However, since what I really liked about the original show was thatthey took these matters (homophobia, bullying, teen prostitution,drugs) seriously -- turning it into a comedy was rather jarring.Things I was disappointed in: the other 2 main characters, HollyRobinson & Dustin Nguyen's characters were not mentioned at all, Iguess the two other sneering officers shown for about a minute weresupposed to represent them? Ice Cube's role was turned into nothing butgratuitous swearing that added no value to any of his scenes. (werethey trying to say that's all that Cpt Fuller did?)Things I was creeped out at: Jonah Hill's character falling for anunderage HS girl was super creepy. Gratuitous sex scene at party ofsupposedly underage kids being show - ultra creepy. The fact that thesesupposed officers of the law would raided the lockup to then providealochol & drugs to kids. I know they're portrayed as stupid & that theywere just trying to fit in, but it was so unrealistic & stupid it wasjarring.Parts I liked: When they discovered that values at school had changedand dumb jocks were no longer popular and that intelligence andenvironmentalism were valued. The cameo by "Tom" & "Doug" (even thoughit was during a very dumb scene) The inside jokes to keep an old-schoolfan amused (naming a character Jenko, Korean Jesus, etc.)

The television show 21 Jump Street, about cops who go undercover ashigh schoolers, debuted on Fox in 1987Âone year after the networkpremieredÂand ran until 1991, launching the career of Johnny Depp (whocameos here, along with his former cast mate Holly Robinson Peete). Asa sign of the irrefutable progress made since the fearmongering,anti-hedonist Reagan-Bush era, the mixed-bag big-screen 21 Jump Streetmocks that program's lethal earnestness with retrograde raunch, packingin more references to dicks and dick-sucking than 20 Manhuntprofiles...Read the full review here: http://www.villagevoice.com/movies/

It's a rowdy, massively entertaining ride done with wild wit and creative abandon. Now, bring on the sequel!
MaryAnn Johanson 19 April 2013
[F]ueled almost entirely by an appreciation of its own ridiculousness, yet one that balances the absurdity with some smart truths... It's tough to be sensitive about the silly, but directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller... pull it off.
Troy_Campbell 19 April 2013
About 15 minutes into this laugh-fest, Ice Cube's straight-talkingCaptain Dickson explains to young coppers Channing Tatum and Jonah HillÂ two "Justin Beaver lookin' motherf...s" Â that the Jump Street unitis a revived undercover police program from the eighties that has beenresurrected because the men in suits can't think of anything originalanymore. It's an unsubtle dig at Hollywood's fascination with remakingold T.V. shows, but it highlights the movie's tongue-in-cheek intentloud and clear: to take a cherished part of America's televisionhistory and make it bloody hilarious. It succeeds. Not only do the gags(a fantastic blend of self-referential humour, physical comedy andwitty one-liners Â all often vulgar and truly earning its MA15+ rating)come thick and fast, but they hit more often than not, and those thatfall flat are quickly forgotten such is the rapid rate of jokes. Hill(who also co-wrote) and Tatum prove to be a fantastic mismatch too,with the latter especially impressing in his first fully-fledged comedyrole. 21 Jump Street is the funniest flick of 2012 so far.
