'21 Jump Street' Review

21 Jump Street (dir/s: Phil Lord & Christopher Miller, 2012) Cert: 15

Here's a list of some recent comedy movies (2011-2012):

The Inbetweeners Movie
The Hangover Part 2
30 Minutes or Less
Bad Teacher
Horrible Bosses 
Bucky Larson: Born to Be a Star
Just Go With It
Our Idiot Brother
Your Highness
Burke & Hare
The Change-Up
Johnny English Reborn
Hall Pass 
Tower Heist
The Sitter
This Means War
Project X
One for the Money

21 Jump Street is 100% funnier than every film on that list.

In fact, it's the best American comedy since Superbad.

  1. Rather than a re-hash of the original, though, this is a re-imagining by Hill, who ... set it in the present with appropriate nods to the original and a whole lot of silliness. Nostalgia has rarely been better served and Tatum hasn't been better. Great jobs by everybody involved which sets the bar pretty high-up this year for comedies. Good review. Check out my review when you can get the chance.
