THEY’RE NOT 21 ANYMORE.
Schmidt and Jenko (Jonah Hill, Channing Tatum) are back undercover, this time at a college where they’re looking for a dealer who’s been supplying students with a deadly new drug. The sequel to 21 Jump Street (2012) has such a loose attitude that it’s a wonder the two stars even remember their characters’ names. Tons of inside jokes that culminate in a very funny closing credit sequence where they send up potential future sequels! Hill and Tatum’s male bonding reaches new lovable heights, but the story is boring and it’s all extremely uneven.
