It’s been two years since they graduated high school for the second time, and to say the careers of Metro City officers Schmidt (Jonah Hill) and Jenko (Channing Tatum) have blossomed after the unexpected success of their last case, would be a lie.
There was a silver-lining however – the ‘Jump Street’ program was such a success that it’s budget has been drastically increased, meaning these two are going back undercover. Once again under the prying eye of Captain Dickson (Ice Cube) and having had to relocate across the road to 22 Jump Street, Schmidt and Jenko are heading to college to bust a drug-ring.
But after Jenko infiltrates the Football team and unexpectedly strikes up a ‘bromance’ with star Quarterback Zook, he and Schmidt’s partnership undergoes it’s biggest test to-date, as they struggle to remain focused on the case while battling all the trials and tribulations that come with being a college freshman.
22 Jump Street brings all the qualities that made the first outing of this 80′s remake a box-office hit, and yet it manages to bring something extra special in the comedy factor, with some genuine laugh-out-loud moments that make this an instant hit.
