Funnier, cleverer, wittier, and snarkier than the first film. It is nonstop self-deprecation that doles out well-deserved smacks to about 817 Hollywood things that desperately deserve it. I’m “biast” (pro): loved the first film…
I’m “biast” (con): …but wasn’t expecting to love the sequel
I have seen the source material (and I love it)
(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)
I am like Charlie Brown contemplating before me Lucy with the football, and wondering once again if I will let myself be suckered in… again.
And I did.
See, I loved the late 80-early 90s TV show 21 Jump Street. And I hate Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill with the power of a thousand dying brown dwarf stars (so, you know, not that much, but still).

Last month I attended the annual CinemaCon expo in Las Vegas, and during the Sony presentation I got to watch an exclusive new trailer for Phil Lord and Chris Miller's 22 Jump Street. I did my best to recap all of the best moments in the footage in the write-up I put together after the screening, but when it comes to comedy sometimes you just have to see it for yourself. Fortunately, the studio has released a brand new trailer for the upcoming sequel that features many of the best moments I saw in Vegas. Directed by Phil Lord and Chris Miller, 22 Jump Street picks up right after the events of the first movie and finds partners Schmidt (Jonah Hill) and Jenko (Channing Tatum) stepping up their detective game and heading off to do an undercover mission at the local college (which is bizarrely called Metropolitan City State).
