22 Jump Street: Awkwardness, Silly and Mostly Funny

22 Jump Street Review

22 Jump Street
I postponed watching 22 Jump Street because I was somehow disappointed from the concept that was introduced in 21 Jump Street compared to the original TV series of the late 80s and early 90s. Don't get me wrong 21 Jump Street from 2012 was a fun comedy but it was not what the fans of the TV show expected. 22 Jump Street was completely the same as the first film as it was overly mentioned in the film itself. Our two heroes go undercover this time to college in order to bring down the dealer and the supplier of new drug that's called wighfy. In my opinion 22 Jump Street surpassed the original film in comedy, awkwardness and mostly stupidity.

If it was any other movie having those last two elements in their repertuar that movie would fail horribly. But 22 Jump Street didn’t take itself seriously (like you may see from 22 Jump Street Trailer here) actually it was a complete opposite. 22 Jump Street is the most aware of itself that you cannot go farther than that, the post credit scene of the film was priceless when the creators of the film made one of the funniest scenes on the big screen. And that is the reason why 22 Jump Street worked so well. Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill do a great job portraying the silly duo, presenting us with endless comical sequences, men bonding and horrible police work. 
The funniest segment that the film presented was the moment Ice Cube discovered that Hill was screwing his daughter. Ice Cube reaction was epic, Hill did his part and Tatum nailed it at the end in the Police station with the fallout of the event. Although I had my doubts about the film in the beginning, I have to say that 22 Jump Street is a great comedy with silly humor, its surreal, fun and most of all aware of itself. You shouldn't miss it.
