After making their way through high school (twice), big changes are in store for officers Schmidt (Jonah Hill) and Jenko (Channing Tatum) when they go deep undercover at a local college. But when Jenko meets a kindred spirit on the football team, and Schmidt infiltrates the bohemian art major scene, they begin to question their partnership. Now they don't have to just crack the case - they have to figure out if they can have a mature relationship.

During the parents weekend luncheon, Mrs. Dickson (Queen Latifah) mentions that she's "straight outta Compton," paying homage to the 1988 album that put Ice Cube (Captain Dickson) and his hip hop group N.W.A on the map. See more »
Just after the library scene where Jenko drops down one landing at a time and then jumps over the railing, his shoes are flat-soled, instead of the cleats he should be wearing with his football uniform. See more »
'22' is infinite notches better than '21'. A sequel that's not just a rehash of the original.
22 Jump Street, continues with the story of police officers, Schmidt(Jonah Hill) & Jenko(Channing Tatum). After the events of the first film, and a major screw-up by the two buddy cops, Deputy Chief Hardy(Nick Offerman), sends Schmidt & Jenko back to the Jump Street division. They've now moved across the street. Hence, the name. Here, Captain Dickson(Ice Cube) orders the two partners to infiltrate a local college drug ring. This synthetic drug is even more lethal & addictive than the previous drug. The drug is called WhyPhy. Now, it is up to Schmidt & Jenko to infiltrate the dealer, find the supplier & stop the manufacturing of WhyPhy.
22 Jump Street is hysterical! There are a number of scenes in the movie that will leave the viewer in splits. Although it's an adult comedy, the jokes are not entirely crude & sexual, which is refreshing. There are many sequences that pay tribute to 21 Jump Street(2012). However, it's not a carbon copy of the 2012 smash hit. The action sequences have been choreographed beautifully & look extremely believable. The highlight of the movie, is the bromance between Jonah Hill & Channing Tatum. Hill & Tatum share a natural chemistry that oozes all over the screen. The fact that they're friends in real life also helps, I guess. I would like to tip my hat to directors Phil Lord & Christopher Miller. The directing duo can effortlessly switch from an animated movie about figurines & blocks to an action comedy. Hats off to Lord & Miller for pulling that off. Jonah Hill is spectacular as Schmidt. Hill's character oozes confidence and seems to be in control of what's happening, this time around. Channing Tatum is outstanding as Jenko. Tatum's character has matured, and this aspect has been portrayed by Tatum, effortlessly. Peter Stormare is good as The Ghost. Wyatt Russell is impressive as Zook. Amber Stevens is awesome as Maya. Jillian Bell is effective as Mercedes. Nick Offerman is sarcastically funny as Deputy Chief Hardy. Ice Cube is hysterical & unforgettable as Captain Dickson. Stick around for the opening credits to watch Hollywood being ripped apart in a comical fashion. Preferably watch '21' before you go to see this movie. 22 Jump Street is a must watch. Watch it with that one best friend who'll never let you down, no matter what.
