22 Jump Street

After surviving high school, Jonah Hill (star and co-writer) and Channing Tatum return as detectives Schmidt and Jenko going back undercover - this time to infiltrate a university. Directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller (Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs) are also back.

When Jenko (Tatum) meets a kindred spirit on the football team, and Schmidt (Hill) makes good with the bohemian art major scene, their bromance begins to strain. Now they don't have to just crack the case – they have to figure out if they can have a mature relationship.

We praised the stellar laugh rate of 21 Jump Street a couple of years back, but faced with the quandary of how to follow up that surprisingly side-splitting effort, returning directors Phil Lord and Christopher Miller put pedal to the metal. That this comes hot on the heels of their hectic humour on display in The Lego Movie explains much about the style of comedy on offer, as Lord and Miller continue to mine a similar vein of absurdist gags, boosting the laughs-per-minute ratio of its predecessor.

Bigger and better – 22 Jump Street joins the exclusive list of sequels that out-gun their originals. We’re already knocking at the door of no.23.

Tatum’s performance here is even more puppy-dog lovable than last time, and his scenes with Hill possess a goofy, low-key warmth too often lacking in big-budget comedy.

An exploding piñata of gags, pratfalls, winking asides, throwaway one-liners and self-reflexive waggery.

In all its uncompromising goofiness, 22 Jump Street brings onstream a sugar-rush of entertainment.

For once, cranking out a play-it-safe sequel yields something satisfying.

Rare is the film that understands the pleasures of letting an enraged Ice Cube take out his wrath on an all-you-can-eat buffet.
