Film of the day – 22 Jump Street

Jonah Hill, Channing Tatum -22 Jump Street

The Jonah-Channing bromance returns to our screens tonight, with the comedy crime sequel, 22 Jump Street. Following in strong suit from its predecessor, the unsurprisingly named, 21 Jump Street – two cops with a reputation for messing it up big time, Schmidt (Jonah Hill) and Jenko (Channing Tatum), head undercover once again in the hope of catching a notorious drug dealer.

This time the pair find themselves at a local college and, with the intent of ‘fitting in,’ immerse themselves into college life with one joining the football team and the other, the art society. As social rules and trends have changed since their youth, the cops lose sight of the task at hand and, as their friendship is put under strain, the bust is put in jeopardy.

Filled with ridiculously over-the-top shootouts and explosions, the film is surprising just as funny, if not funnier than the first.
