movie: 21 Jump Street

The movie this weekend was 21 Jump Street.


Description from IMDB: “In high school, Schmidt (Jonah Hill) was a dork and Jenko (Channing Tatum) was the popular jock. After graduation, both of them joined the police force and ended up as partners riding bicycles in the city park. Since they are young and look like high school students, they are assigned to an undercover unit to infiltrate a drug ring that is supplying high school students synthetic drugs. Written by Douglas Young (the-movie-guy)”

I think saying they look like high school students is a stretch. I did like that when they were sent back to high school, their roles were reversed. The jock is forced into the nerdy crowd, and the geekier guy gets in with the more popular kids.

I found this movie quite entertaining. From the general awkwardness of the inept undercover cops to the various effects of the drug they’re trying to find, there is much hilarity. I can’t think of any part of the movie that I didn’t like. I would love to see a sequel.

21 Jump Street gets an A.
