Bill C’s Review – 4 out of 5
22 Jump Street is the sequel to 21 Jump Street starring Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum graduating from cops going undercover as high school students to cops going undercover as college students.
The sequel is almost as funny as the first. The movie doesn’t take itself seriously so they feel free to make fun of everything from the absurdity of them pretending to be college students to film sequels to their own film persona. Some of the humor doesn’t quite hit the mark, but a lot does.
The film has a bunch of cameos cameos and you should stick around during the closing credits. If you liked the first one, you’ll definitely like this. But it’s not necessary to have seen the original to enjoy this above-average comedy.
Bill I’s Review – 3.5 out of 5
I really enjoyed this, even better than 21 Jump Street from what I can recall. It’s over the top and nuts in some scenes with not much down time between the laughs. Bill mentioned the closing credits….they are as funny as anything, and at the very end there’s a 3 second funny bit. Ice Cube has a real good scene where he goes ballistic. Channing Tatum is so good, and of course Jonah Hill never disappoints. Perfect summer fun film!
