When all is said and done "21 Jump Street" completely bastardizes the original television series from the eighties. The original show was a dramatic and controversial series that took painstaking turns in to very taboo subjects in America and was the...
Whatever you call 21 Jump Street, this potty-mouthed and drug-laced reimagining of the 1980s TV show has one of the highest laughs-per-minute ratios since the Naked Gun films.
The television series 21 Jump Street, like many old shows, is a product of its time. Trying to accomplish a "straight" remake of something so irrevocably tied to the '80s could not be done in 2012; it wouldn't work.
The latest in a seemingly endless slew of painful spoofs based on TV shows, “21 Jump Street” takes an OK premise ‒ two undercover cops get a second shot at making the grade in high school ‒ and milks it for an occasional chuckle before devolving into a...
Reel Film Reviews
Based on the 1980s television show, 21 Jump Street follows two inept cops (Jonah Hill's Schmidt and Channing Tatum's Jenko) as they're sent undercover into a local high school to find and arrest an up-and-coming drug dealer.
If you thought a movie version of 21 Jump Street was a bad idea, you're not alone. The film itself seems to feel that way, and so it makes the very wise decision to take only the basic premise of the 80s TV show on which it is based, then spin it into...
well let me start out by saying i am a christian man and that is probabley why i did not realy enjoy this movie so mutch but however i did enjoy some of it and found it very fun and funny just found some of it to be very dirty as well the story goes...
Most of the big laughs in "21 Jump Street" arrive in the first half, but take a moment to consider that phrase "big laughs." What was the last stupid Hollywood comedy -- good-stupid, not stupid-stupid -- to offer actual, audible, verifiable big laughs?
I am an unapologetic, unabashed and totally gnarly child of the 80s. Yet for some strange reason, I never watched “21 Jump Street” when it was originally aired on the Fox network. I was keenly aware of the series, and even I knew that Johnny Depp was...
A good-natured must-see for fans of broad, silly comedies with a little something under the surface too. Bright, breezy and brilliant.
The Critical Critics
21 Jump Street follows police force partners, the meat-headed Jenko (Channing Tatum) and smarty-pants Schmidt (Jonah Hill). While they expected nonstop thrills, the two are put on the park duty.
The best revenge is success, which is something comic actor turned Oscar nominee Jonah Hill knows all too well. His emergence as scene stealer, unlikely leading man and in-demand Hollywood actor, is a great underdog story. Pairing Hill with Brad Pitt...
21 Jump Street Police Station Channing Tatum and Jonah HillPickles and ice cream. Bacon and cupcakes. Chocolate and potato chips. Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill. Some pairings shouldn’t work, yet somehow the result is delicious – and in 21 Jump Street...
Regular readers (yes, all three of you) will know I am often somewhat harsh in my opinion of Hollywood's predilection for remakes, reboots and rehashes – especially those of the TV variety. Most of the time, the film versions of classic TV shows...
A movie like “21 Jump Street” seems, at first glance, to be begging to be graded on a curve.
The A.V. Club
The film version of 21 Jump Street might as well have ironic quotation marks around its title, since damn near everything else in it does. The proudly goofy take-off on the television show that made Johnny Depp a reluctant teen idol is less...
Fan The Fire
21 Jump Street is far from a classic, if it were an original story we might have still been talking about it in 10 years, but nevertheless it’s well worth a chance, and you’ll be surprised what you get out of it.
It's a good thing 21 Jump Street is funny, because in terms of pure filmmaking, it is a near-embarrassment. Directed by two men whose primary claim to fame is the animated flick Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs, this live-action semi-spoof ...

The movie version of "21 Jump Street" isn't faithful to the tone or spirit of the TV show, which ran from 1987-91 on the fledgling Fox Network. It isn't quite a satire of the show either, despite five or six lines of dialogue suggesting such a thing...
The Late-1980s pop culture relic 21 Jump Street was a primo specimen of a TV police procedural with a catchy hook: A team of fresh-faced cops work undercover as high school kids, reporting back to their tough/earnest boss at the address listed above.
New York Post
So “21 Jump Street,” an adaptation of Johnny Depp’s career-launching ’80s TV show, is a meta-comedy — plus it’s a buddy comedy, a physical comedy, an action comedy and a nonstop raunchy verbal riff like “Superbad.” That ought to be enough comedy for...
The Austin Chronicle
However, for all the personal growth that our two boys in blue are supposed to experience during the course of their mission, you might think that lessons about callous expressions of misogyny and homophobia might fit into the mix. 21 Jump Street is...
21 Jump Street admits from the start, in a nicely timed and very meta joke, that it's really just an attempt to mine the past for nostalgia and ideas-- in this case, adapting a somewhat beloved 80s TV show about undercover cops in high school.
I used to think Channing Tatum was kind of useless. In movie after movie, I'd watch him show up, hit his marks and deliver his lines, but he didn't seem to have a larger purpose besides looking good, just another example of how The Machine needs...
Susan Granger Entertainment Commentaries
Reviving and re-inventing the 1987 action-comedy TV franchise seems to work as Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum play recent, still youthful looking Police Academy graduates who are assigned to infiltrate and expose a high-school drug ring that produces...
Las Vegas Weekly
At the beginning of 21 Jump Street, main characters Schmidt (Jonah Hill) and Jenko (Channing Tatum), a pair of bumbling rookie cops, get reassigned to a unit of undercover officers who infiltrate high schools, with the explanation that it’s “a canceled...
If you loved Superbad and even remotely tolerated the original undercover-cops-in-high-school plot of TV's 21 Jump Street, this could be your new favorite movie. It moves at the speed of trailers, both in terms of story and character...
Before they made 21 Jump Street, the first and only other feature co-directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller made was the surprisingly well-reviewed animated comedy Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs. It's a little surprising that their remake/reboot...
21 Jump Street makes it all seem easy. This is the rare breed of Hollywood studio production that has the brash spirit of an independent picture and the sharp wit of a stand-up comic. The movie’s budget is big, but so are its ideas and smarts.
But somehow, against the odds, 21 Jump Street works on just about every level, largely thanks to a whip-smart script that revels in the ridiculousness of its own premise while at the same time subverting both the High School comedy and buddy cop drama.
The best thing about 21 Jump Street, then, is that directors Chris Miller and Phil Lord and screenwriter Michael Bacall took a crass Hollywood rip off and have actually tried to do something interesting with it.
ABC Radio (Australia)
It was inevitable that someone would want to revamp the teen cop TV series 21 Jump Street for the big screen. Known mainly for being Johnny Depp's break into stardom, the show's 80s urban style and cod-serious "issue of the week" formula won many fans.
In this cinematic reimagining of the 80s TV show 21 Jump Street, Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum star as incompetent and immature police officers banished to an experimental undercover department where they are tasked with infiltrating a high school.
“21 Jump Street” pulls through with such conviction in its absurdity that it becomes better than it really has any right to be. Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum star as bumbling police officers who get reassigned to an undercover unit operating from an...
Judging by the mixed fortuntes of The A-Team, The Dukes Of Hazzard and Miami Vice, playing the ’80s TV remake game is a dangerous one. So what hope for 21 Jump Street, a show remembered for giving Johnny Depp’s career an early boost?
Cut Print Review
In an age where comedies needn’t actually contain any comedy – a loophole commonly referred to as Adam Sandler’s career – 21 Jump Street is breath of fresh nitrous oxide-infused air. No, it’s not an instant classic like Jonah Hill’s...
The artistic bankruptcy of mining old television shows for big-budget movies is so firmly entrenched at this point that one of the best jokes in 21 Jump Street—yes, another movie mined from an old television show—directly references it.
21 Jump Street is a very weird comedy. It’s sort of ‘Michel Gondry makes a high-school movie with Judd Apatow’ weird. That’s a good kind of weird, but it’s weird nevertheless. The story itself is perfectly normal: two very different cops...
AFTER being Oscar-nominated as a best supporting actor for Moneyball and then appearing in something as weak as The Sitter, one wondered where Jonah Hill might see his career heading – serious, or stupid?
Shadows on the Wall
An especially sharp script makes this riotous adaptation of the serious-minded 1980s TV series thoroughly entertaining. And it manages to achieve a balance between the action and spoofery due to sure-handed direction and a cast that...
Eye for Film
21 Jump Street knows you're thinking this too. Its opening title, advertising its production company Original Film, serves as a brazen, ironic rejoinder to our expectations of dreary derivativeness. And the revival of a certain "cancelled undercover...
The title 21 Jump Street probably means very little to most people under 30, particularly in Britain, where the 1980s Johnny Depp-starring cop show, in which patently adult police officers posed as teenagers to solve crime, never caught on in quite the...
Clearly, he’s well past worrying about the association now and pops up in a cameo role towards the end of this amiably silly if overlong and belated movie spin-off.

As far as follow-ups go, few could be less likely than a lewd and sweary buddy cop comedy from the people who brought you animated family adventure Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs.
The Globe And Mail
The earnestly silly TV series, 21 Jump Street, about young undercover detectives, ran from 1987 to 1991, helping the fledgling Fox network reach a youth demographic, whilelaunching Johnny Depp’s career. A quarter century later, the title provides...
Time Out London
One such blunder lands them at 21 Jump Street, the resurrected ’80s programme that places puppy-faced cops undercover in high school. Posing as brothers, Jenko and Schmidt return to the halls. But it turns out times have changed.
