'21 Jump Street' Reviews Are Even Hotter Than Channing Tatum

21 Jump Street

Channing Tatum in a uniform? That's my idea of perfection. And Jonah Hill? He's looking pre-tty damn good with his newly slim physique. I can definitely last two hours in a movie theater with these funny guys leading the way. My fingers are crossed that the movie remake of the 1980's TV series, 21 Jump Street, will be as just as good as these two look.

Directed by Phil Lord and Chris Miller, 21 Jump Street follows Tatum and Hill as undercover cops who go back to high school to investigate a teenage drug ring. What they didn't realize, though, is that pretending to be teenagers isn't as easy as they thought.

I can get on board with this, but what do the critics say? Check out the 21 Jump Street reviews, here:


Michael Rechtshaffen, The Hollywood Reporter:

While on-a-roll Oscar-nominee Hill is in fine form, both comedic and otherwise -- this is the role that prompted him to kick-start that significant weight loss -- it’s Tatum, an introspective actor not thought of as an exuberant funnyman, who rises to the occasion with a loose, mischievous performance that amusingly plays off of Hill’s more earnest introvert.

Lisa Schwarzbaum, Entertainment Weekly:

It bridges slapstick and action. It's quick-witted with its pop references.

A.O Scott, The New York Times:

The real energy in the film comes from Mr. Hill and Mr. Tatum, who simultaneously fulfill and reverse their buddy-movie stereotypes.

Claudia Puig, USA Today:

It's that rare comedy that's funny throughout, with a hilarious story that hinges on the unlikely pairing of Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum.

It seems like the critics are loving it. And based on this trailer, it definitely looks hilarious. Check it out:
