Movie Review: 22 Jump Street
PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it, right?
That’s the premise for 22 Jump Street.
The unlikely comedic duo of Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum are back and may be better than ever.
22 Jump Street takes the same premise that made the 2012 21 Jump Street so popular, and does it all over again.
The onscreen bromance between Hill and Tatum is really what sets this movie apart, and makes it so funny to watch.
A lot of the same jokes and gags are back from the first movie, but there are just enough new plot twists and jokes to still make it funny.
In 21 Jump Street officers Morton Schmidt and Greg Jenko went undercover at high school. This time they’re going undercover at college.
Of course during college they both end up going their separate directions, which questions their partnership.
Sound familiar? It should.
If you take one thing away from this review it’s this: If you liked the first one, chances are you’re going to like the second one.
Ice Cube is back as the hilarious duo’s boss and he definitely doesn’t disappoint the second go around.
This movie is rated R for a reason, and 95% of it is Ice Cube’s character.
Just as in the first one, the action is just so-so. If you’re going to see the movie for the explosions, you’re going to be sorely disappointed.
Make sure you stick around for the credits as you never know what type of sequel they’ll think of next.
As I said before, if you liked the first one, you’re going to like this one. That doesn’t mean I’d rush right out to the theater to see it. I’d wait for it to come out to rent, it’s not one of those “gotta see” movies.
Overall I give 22 Jump Street a B-.
Been there, done that, seen the sequel.
