Storyline

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. Written by Douglas Young (the-movie-guy)

Trivia

At one point, Dave Franco's character says that he does not trust Channing Tatum's character because he looks like he is forty years old. In reality, Tatum is only five years older than Franco. See more »

Goofs

When Jenko is playing with chemicals with his friends blowing stuff up he gets a bit of the chemicals on his hands. When the guys run away from the bomb, Jenko can be seen touching one of the boys arms. Covered in acid, this would clearly cause a reaction. See more »

Finds a nice ground between entertaining and hysterical
23 February 2012 | by See all my reviews

On the surface, this movie looks like it would be somewhat mediocre. But it's actually pretty damn good. When you're not laughing your pants off (and believe me, you will be), you'll have no problem being just plain entertained by it's ability to just have fun. It does a great job of not only avoiding giant cliché's, but making fun of them in the process. Jonah Hill will have you laughing, and Channing Tatum actually did a good job in this movie.......not surprising seeing that the role called for him to be a douche bag. Which once again, is something to chuckle about. Towards the end, the movie does tend to drag on, but has no problem pulling you right back into it's fun. As far as comedies go, this is a pretty good way to start off 2012
