Jump! Jump! Jump! Jump! I sound a bit Kris Krossed there or Van Halenish, take your pick. I just wanted to jump in quickly to my review of the hilarious comedy "21 Jump Street". The film is based on the popular 80's TV show. Like the show, the film focuses on a couple of young police officers who go undercover in a high school to investigate crimes, more of the drug dealing affair. Channing Tatum stars as young Officer Jenko, who is the muscular good-looking type but not too bright in the cerebral bulb. Jenko (the J is not silent) was a bully during high school. Jonah Hill co-stars as young Officer Schmidt, who is the vertically challenged officer who is gifted with mental aptitude but lacking in the physical component. Schmidt was one of Jenko's main bully targets in high school. So jump few years later, and what we see is that Jenko & Schmidt reunite now as young officers and even partner up together; but this time around in a more friendly tone, even though they do have their disagreements. Schmidt and Jenko's undercover high school mission is to find the supplier of a dangerous synthetic drug that is being circulated and sold in the school to many students. But due to their inadequacies, Schmidt and Jenko do get in a bit of uproarious situations in trying to complete their mission, which in hence becomes nearly a "Mission Impossible"; had to plug in another movie that was adapted from a popular TV show. Speaking of missions, Directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller have successfully completed the mission that many filmmakers have not been able to succeed in, which is adapting an infamous TV show into a great film. Michael Bacall's screenplay was side-splitting and engaging. Channing Tatum demonstrated that he could bare his stuff also for the comedic genre with his humorous performance as Jenko. And it is "No Schmidt" that Jonah Hill is quite the talent, with yet another strong performance here as Schmidt. Other "21 Jump Street" notable acting performances that were on target included Ice Cube as the fiery Police Captain Dickson, Rob Riggle as the oddball P.E. Coach Mr. Walters , and some guy that had the "21 Jump Street" gig before who should remain nameless so I do not commit the horrific cinematic crime of movie spoiling. "21 Jump Street" is a very funny movie that you should investigate as soon as possible. ***** Excellent
