Since they are young and look like high school students, they are assigned to an undercover unit to infiltrate a drug ring that is supplying high school students synthetic drugs. Written by

I was SO looking forward to this 'modern' version of 21 Jump Street! How bitterly disappointed was I? I feel sorry for the people who have never seen the original Jump Street series with Johnny Depp. This movie isn't ANYTHING like the original and I think it's a disgrace they even got the rights to do this. In the original, the Jump Street detectives are just there because of their youthful looks, not because they were incompetent morons! The overall theme was of drama, although there was the obvious comic moments shared between the cast. The original also raised important social/political issues of the time (AIDS, homosexuality, child abuse, bullying ,gang violence, abortion, sexual violence) and tried to deal sensitively with the stigma of these issues and 'educate' the masses, whose ignorant, racist, sexist (and whatever 'ist' is left) attitudes held our society back. In a way the show tried to 'right' some of the 'wrongs' our self-centered society had created, it didn't glorify it. I love comedy as much as anyone, but this rubbish just mocked the original show and only serves to justify the current B-S lives people wallow in! And I'm sure this hasn't addressed any of the racist/sexist issues we STILL experienced. Boy, haven't we evolved???
