After making their way through high school (twice), big changes are in store for officers Schmidt (Jonah Hill) and Jenko (Channing Tatum) when they go deep undercover at a local college. But when Jenko meets a kindred spirit on the football team, and Schmidt infiltrates the bohemian art major scene, they begin to question their partnership. Now they don't have to just crack the case - they have to figure out if they can have a mature relationship. If these two overgrown adolescents can grow from freshmen into real men, college might be the best thing that ever happened to them.~ Jeremy Wheeler, Rovi

22 Jump Street is pretty much 21 Jump Street with a bigger budget. Something the movie literally tells you within 10 minutes of watching it. Its self aware humor peppers the film as it plays up the bromance that’s part of every cop flicks. All the while it’s skewering bloated sequel while being one at the same time. That’s not to say it isn’t funny because it is but it could have used a tad bit of trimming. Thankfully, Hill and Tatum continue their fantastic chemistry from the first, each playing up their parts to perfection. Christopher Miller and Phil Lord, yes the same guys that made The Lego Movie, keep the action rolling at a steady pace with just a smattering of dead spots. The third act might feel a tad bit tacked on but as a whole it’s a really fun film. Be sure to stick around for the credits as they posit what countless sequels would look like, something Ice Cube might know a little something about..
