Jeremy of The Daily Rotation wrote, "21 Jump Street is the latest comedy inspired by past material. It’s a film that sounds like it doesn’t need to be made, yet it somehow works wonders. Channing Tatum finally delivers that performance we’ve all been waiting for and Jonah Hill helps make the film even better with his usual humor. It’s a mixture of all of the right elements to make a near-perfect film. Something that’s rare, especially in its genre. Directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller transition well into the R-rated comedy, bringing their crazy antics from their previous film, Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs, and making it work extremely well."
