21 Jump Street was originally an action-drama series from the '80s with Johnny Depp who broke through with this series. The series is now seen as an action comedy of a high level, with the great jokes and hilarious situations.
Little disappointed in this film. It had it's moments but I didn't find it consistently funny - it's almost as if audiences have been so starved for a good comedy they jumped at the first decent one to come along in awhile.
I actually found this one to be pretty funny. I enjoyed it much more than I thought I would. That being said, it wasn't entirely great, but still well worth the watch I thought and carried plenty of laughs. I will say, though, that this really has nothing on Ted in terms of "comedy of the year" potential. I'd highly recommend that one.
If anything, this movie sold me on liking Channing Tatum...and that's an acheivement in and of itself.
I'll never be a fan of Tatum really, but I don't hate on him like so many do. I can understand why this role would sell someone on not hating Tatum anymore. He does show he has some comedic and acting chops of sorts here. However, what you see from him here is something I already noticed back in his cameo role in The Dilemma.
I don't know, I hated that guy until 21 Jump Street. And well I wouldn't say I love him, I think he's a capable actor.
