21 JUMP STREET
This is one of those films that generally surprised me. Going in, I didn’t have high expectations. After all, Jonah Hill’s last comedy was The Sitter, but man did this movie bring the laughs. Channing Tatum is turning into the new incarnation of Mark Wahlberg, an actor known for his mostly serious movies who’s straight out awesome at comedy (but unlike Marky Mark, Channing’s actually a decent dramatic actor). There’s a ton of fun cameos in this pic, the gags are hilarious, and the movie delivers on multiple levels. Jonah Hill has shown that he can actually write a good film and I’m hoping he does more writing in the future.
Definitely a guilty pleasure film, it’s one of Jonah Hill’s best and a sequel is definitely on its way. The trailer undersells what’s likely going to be one of 2012’s best comedies.
