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
Funny, mindless humor, which is just fine. Very entertaining throughout the almost two hours. Channing Tatum (whom I despise as an actor), even did an admirable job. Jonah Hill played his usual character that he plays in almost every movie except Moneyball. For sure worth watching. I was surprised that even the "critics" gave this movie mostly good reviews.
