Jenko (Channing Tatum) and Schmidt (Jonah Hill) have graduated from high school and are heading off to college to find the drug dealer selling a new drug.
At college, Jenko joins the football team, joins a fraternity, and hangs with a new bro (the Quarterback of the team). Broken hearted at losing his best friend, Schmidt finds a beautiful coed and they hook-up. Back at 22 Jump Street, Schmidt brags about this hot hook-up to EVERYONE, and this hilariously backfires on him later.
Back at MC State, they follow leads to try to find the drug dealer until they solve the case during Spring Break in Mexico. (Director to himself: “How do we introduce hot people in bathing suits? Got it! Let’s go on Spring Break!”)
“22 Jump Street” is a simple plot with extremely funny twists that are laugh-out-loud hilarious. Tatum and Hill are PERFECT together and are both very funny. Tatum dances, and Hill does not expose himself, thankfully. The previews of future Jump Streets was hilarious. All with the same basic plot just different kinds of schools.
Not for kids. R-rated. Lots of f-words.
Stay all the way to the end…we were the only ones who did, and were rewarded with a funny short clip. Rock Chalk! (those who know will know what I mean). 🙂
