Jeremy of The Daily Rotation wrote, "22 Jump Street is that rare sequel that manages to build on everything from the previous surprise hit, 21 Jump Street and then become an even better film. 22 Jump Street is not only the best movie of 2014 so far, but it’s also the first comedy sequel to succeed in being better than the original film, which was an achievement of its own at the time of its initial release. 22 Jump Street is absolutely hilarious, while also being more clever than before and a generally interesting film about growing relationships and struggles that come with them. Directors Phil Lord and Christopher Miller have outdone themselves yet again, creating a film that’s hyper, insane and downright impressive. These guys are legends."
