22 Jump Street; directed by Phil Lord and Christopher Miller, written by Michael Bacall and Oren Uziel among others, starring Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill.
This film is hilarious from start to finish, albeit with some blips of mild guffawing and perhaps some subtle looks of amusement, but with that aside, a solid comedic performance is very much welcomed in a time where many have tried but few are successful.
The right balance of frivolity and seriousness has created a sterling movie, worth watching till the ending credits.
On its debut 21 Jump Street depicted a pair of underachieving cops undercover at a local high school, in the attempt to bring down a drug ring. 22 Jump Street is varly similar, but instead of going undercover at a high school, Schmidt and Jenko take on a local college; facing an even bigger challenge than before.
Falling into the action/comedy/crime genre, it is welcoming to know that all aspects are fulfilled; there is plenty of action, comedy and indeed crime to keep you content.
