Who knew...? 21 Jump Street, I may wanna sign up and be a cop!

21 Jump Street starring Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill, such a funny movie that I highly recommend.  Two former students from the same high school meet up at the local police academy, eventually passing and becoming cops then more than cops. After a drug bust gone bad, they were sent to join a group located at 21 Jump Street supervised by Captain D (Ice Cube).  Jonah and Channing were sent back to High School as students going undercover to catch a drug dealer.

From the onset, they were sucked in, Jonah, playing the role of a cool, down to earth student, Channing, playing the role of a nerd due to an identity switch gone wrong in the principal’s office.  They both embraced their roles and from that moment, the onscreen chemistry shined and the two budding stars took over.  This movie was amazingly funny.  I know what Jonah brings to the table when it comes to comedies but wasn’t sure of Channing’s comedic ability.  Channing did a phenomenal job; he totally understood his role and nailed it. 

By the end of the movie which went by fast, because it was so good, I was glad I had the opportunity to screen this film.  I laughed the entire time!  I give 21 Jump Street 4 stars.

  1. It's always great to see a non comedic actor like Channing Tatum do well in a comedic role. Jonah Hill was great as always.
