22 Jump Street is the funniest movie I’ve seen in a long time. The theater erupted in laughter throughout. The laughs are consistent, frequent and rarely does any one scene end without at least a chuckle. Its funny, its also dumb, and immature, but rarely tasteless or gross. If you’re an intellectual movie snob, or just to grown up to laugh at grownups acting childish, then you won’t enjoy it, but those are the only two reasons I can think of you won’t like it. The acting is as good as it needs to be, same with the story, effects, etc. I will say that Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill could not be more perfectly cast. They rotate who plays the straight man, and play a perfect mismatched pair. The odd couple meets Abbott and Costello. Edge of Tomorrow and X-Men are more suited to the ‘gotta see it in a theater’ action movie role, but 22 Jump Street is the best movie I’ve seen this summer. They do cuss, not as much as an R rated comedy like Hangover or Neighbors, but more than a little. Don’t take your middle schoolers.
