In high school, Schmidt (Jonah Hill) was a dork and Jenko (Channing Tatum) was the popular jock. After graduation, both of them joined the police force and ended up as partners riding bicycles in the city park. 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.

massively overrated, average at best.
3 July 2014 | by (manchester) – See all my reviews

This is the kind of film that you watch, it ends, and that's it. didn't particularly enjoy it or hate it. was mildly amusing at best but I was exactly in stitches watching this film. It was full of typical American clichés and nothing new was bought to the film. I definitely wont be going out of my way to watch 22 jump street.

The story line itself was just really predictable and the film is catered for very young kids and teenagers. The film also drags a bit, it so predictable and you know whats going to happen you're kind of sitting there for the last half an hour just waiting for the inevitable, which in my opinion was boring.

If you want a police comedy then watch hot fuzz. 100 times better.
