Our favorite actor in the entire world, Channing Tatum, has been teasing his 8 million Facebook fans with some teaser photos for 22 Jump Street, but today we have an actual synopsis for the sequel to the very successful 21 Jump Street (our review). Upon first glance, it’s basically the same exact plot as the first film, except Jenko and Schmidt are in college now. But upon second glance… yeah, it’s still pretty much the same general plot.
After making their way through high school (twice), big changes are in store for officers Schmidt (Jonah Hill) and Jenko (Channing Tatum) when they go deep undercover at a local college. But when Jenko meets a kindred spirit on the football team, and Schmidt infiltrates the bohemian art major scene, they begin to question their partnership. Now they don’t have to just crack the case – they have to figure out if they can have a mature relationship. If these two overgrown adolescents can grow from freshmen into real men, college might be the best thing that ever happened to them.
Nitpicking aside, 21 Jump Street was a pretty hilarious movie, and it earned more than $200 million at the box office, so I’m sure C-Tates and Jonah Hill (J-Heezy) will deliver again. Hell, even the deleted scenes from 21 Jump Street were better than most comedies that were released in 2013.
