21 Reasons to Watch 21 Jump Street


For those of you who are too young to remember, 21 Jump Street was a television show in the 80s. It was mostly my mother and my aunt who watched it; children love their cartoons, and are not interested in anything adults like.

Anyway, this here is the movie version. Hollywood showed us that making movie versions of old TV shows is quite lucrative, and since they've basically cleared the 70s with Charlie's Angels and Starsky and Hutch, they now move on to the 80s.

Anyway, here are 21 reasons to watch this. Thank heavens the street address wasn't in triple digits. If it were called 101 Jump Street, I'd have to write 101 reasons to watch this.

1. Channing Tatum's first attempt at comedy

I mean, look at him.

2. A lean, mean, Jonah Hill


3. Excellent comedy, with lots of laugh-out-loud moments

Yes, that's them fingering each other's mouths.

4. That cute blonde girl who played Molly (Brie Larson)

Sometimes, she looks like a pretty girl version of
Joseph Gordon-Levitt.

5. That hot blonde girl who played the slutty Jump Street cop Fugazy (Dakota Johnson)

Blondes are always bitches.

6. Ice Cube's trademark potty mouth

His rap career is basically dead.

7. James Franco's kid brother Dave

"I look like my brother. But I'm uglier."

8. The weirdest Jesus image ever

I think because it's a Korean Jesus.

9. Cameos from the original 21 Jump Street cast

Tom Hanson (Johnny Depp) and Doug Penhall (Peter DeLuise).

10. Johnny Depp in a role that isn't a weird, eccentric oddball

Damn you and your good looks, Depp.

11. Jonah Hill (co-)wrote the story

No caption necessary.

12. Jonah Hill carrying a tune

He can leave the dancing to Channing Tatum, though.

13. Jonah Hill dressed like Eminem

"I'm the real Slim Shady."

14. Jonah Hill in a Peter Pan costume

And Brie Larson as Wendy.

15. Channing Tatum in a potassium nitrate costume

...reading a potassium nitrate poem.

16. The main villain Mr. Walters getting his dick shot off

That's not a finger, folks.

17. Learning the Miranda rights

For those too lazy to read Miranda v. Arizona.

18. That awesome new hallucinogenic street drug

Known in the streets as HFS: Holy Fuckin' Shit.

19. The chemistry between Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum

Channing Tatum loves to do a lot of humping in this movie.

20. The John Woo homage

Seriously. White doves.

21. The possibility of a sequel

"You two sons of bitches are goin' to college!"

All in all, good movie. More writing gigs for Jonah Hill, and more comedy roles for Channing Tatum, please.

21 Jump Street. USA. 2012.

Rating: Seven and a half out of ten.


I had this in the PC already but just didn't have that much interest in watching it yet. After reading this post, I'd already pop the corns and ready that couch!
