While at Hamilton high school (2005), Morton Schmidt (Jonah Hill) was an honor roll geek and Greg Jenko (Channing Tatum) was a popular but underachieving jock. Seven years later, they both graduate from the Metropolitan City Police Academy and are partnered with each other. Because of their youthful looks and the fact that they forgot to read a suspect his Miranda rights, they are assigned to go undercover in a high school in order to infiltrate a drug ring and catch the supplier. Schmidt, under the name Brad McQuaid, is "enrolled" in advanced placement (AP) classes; while Jenko, as his brother Doug, is placed in the no-brainer classes. Unfortunately, they get their undercover names mixed up, and Schmidt attends the no-brainer classes while Jenko attends the AP classes.

21 Jump Street is based on the television series 21 Jump Street (1987-1991). The story and screenplay were written by Jonah Hill and American screenwriter Michael Bacall. It is followed by 22 Jump Street (2014).

If anything, the film is a continuation of the series and works as a reboot of the franchise. Captain Hardy states that "21 Jump Street" was a project in the 1980s, the time of the series, and is being revived. Also, several actors reprise their characters.

"Rescue Song" by Mr. Little Jeans. The complete list of songs can be found here with scene descriptions.

Atoms are composed of a nucleus containing positively-charged protons and a shell in which negatively-charged electrons orbit around the nucleus, much like a sun and its planets. When two (or more) atoms bond with each other, they form a molecule. The difference between a covalent bond and an ionic bond is how the two atoms are linked to each other to form the molecule. In an ionic bond, the electron of one atom is transferred to the other atom, effectively making one atom positive (cation) and the other negative (anion), and positives are attracted to negatives, so the atoms "stick" to each other. In covalent bonding, both atoms share the same electron. This sharing of an electron also helps make two atoms stick together.

Mr Walters (Rob Riggle) and Eric (Dave Franco) escape in a limo with Molly (Brie Larson) as a hostage. Domingo (DeRay Davis) and Karl (Randal Reeder) escape in a second limo. Schmidt and Jenko pursue them in a third limo, all three of them weaving through the streets and baging into parked cars. Jenko creates a homemade bomb based on his knowledge of covalent bonds, learned from his AP Chemistry class, flings it into Domingo and Karl's limo, causing it to blow up. They then turn their sights on Mr Walters' limo. Walters exits the car, holding a gun to Molly's head, and vows to shoot her. Jenko fires his gun but finds that it is out of bullets. As Schmidt prepares to fire, Walters shoots at him, but Jenko leaps in front of Schmidt, taking the bullet in the arm. Schmidt fires at Walters, hitting him in the groin. As they stand over the writhing Walters, Schmidt and Jenko read him his Miranda rights, then high-five each other. In the final scene, Schmidt and Jenko walk into the office amid cheers from their colleagues. Captain Dickson (Ice Cube) congratulates them and informs them of their next assignment ...they're to go undercover in college.

Yes. Judy Hoffs (Holly Robinson Peete) gives Greg and Morton their new car. Stock footage of Harry Truman Ioki (Dustin Nguyen) appears on a television set in the hotel room. Tom Hanson (Johnny Depp) and Doug Penhall (Peter DeLuise) appear as DEA agents. Additionally, Greg shares the same last name as Captain Richard Jenko (Frederic Forrest).
