21 JUMP STREET
STARRING: Jonah Hill, Channing Tatum, Brie Larson, Dave Franco, Rob Riggle, Ice Cube, DeRay Davis and Holly Robinson Peete
DIRECTORS: Phil Lord and Chris Miller
SYNOPSIS: Youthful looking cops go undercover at a high school in order to bust a synthetic drug ring.
RUNNING TIME: 109 Mins
THE GOOD: Rude and crude, this one is going to make you laugh and then laugh some more. Even, if you are too young to remember the TV show (1987-1991) that gave us movie star Johnny Depp.
Dynamic duo Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum have an undeniable chemistry; in front of and behind the camera. Their version is right on target.
Finally, a movie that knows its audience and knows how to entertain!
THE BAD: The last quarter of the film doesn’t measure up… but, since the rest is so good, you won’t care.
THE UGLY: No cameos from Dustin Nguyen, Peter DeLuise, Richard Greico or Steven Williams… Where is the love?
MY SCORE: ****
(4 OUT OF 5 STARS)
