The '80s series 21 Jump Street may have been a crime drama, but the big screen version is most definitely a comedy — and a buddy comedy at that. Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum play a pair of former high school rivals who become best buds during their police training. Life in the force isn't as badass as they were expecting, though — until they get called in to revive "an undercover police program from the '80s," in a very obvious nod to the original series. The guys are pulled back into the throes of high school, with a mission to bring down the dealers of the hottest new drug in town.
Hill is as hilarious as ever, and Tatum seems to be his perfect comedic foil — their background as the former high school bully and nerd is a nice touch. The film is also peppered with some of my favourite funny people, like Parks and Recreation's Nick Offerman, Rob Riggle, and Ellie Kemper from The Office. The film hits cinemas next March, but watch the guys party with the best of 'em when you read more.
