Action, Comedy
Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum team up as an unlikely comic duo in this twisted reboot of the famous late-’80s TV show that launched the career of Johnny Depp. The two play former high school enemies who develop a friendship after they become cops. After getting into trouble, they are put into the newly reactivated 21 Jump Street program (with an angry, hilarious Ice Cube as their captain), and must go undercover as high school students to infiltrate a drug ring. The two are very funny, and Tatum displays a surprising amount of comedic talent. This will stand as one of the year’s funniest—and nastiest—comedies. It also contains some memorable cameos.
