26/03/2012 by Richard BrodyThe late-eighties TV series is rebooted with jolts of sentiment, personal discovery, and wild comedy.
16/03/2012 by William GossThe whole crew makes clear its affections for action cinema, trashy television and the YouTube generation alike while having fun at the expense of all three.
16/03/2012 by Stephen WhittyA raucous, raunchy comedy.
16/03/2012 by Peter TraversThis bracing new take on 21 Jump Street has a playful spark all its own. It's a blast.
Globe and Mail
16/03/2012 by Liam LaceyA try-anything, fitfully amusing muddle that wears its mocking cynicism a bit too proudly.
16/03/2012 by Tom Long"21" makes clear from the beginning it is gobbling up some pop culture refuse in the name of nothing more than making fun of it and having fun with it.
New York Post
16/03/2012 by Kyle SmithThis is the funniest movie I've seen in more than a year.
16/03/2012 by Ann Hornaday"21 Jump Street" might be yet another product of Hollywood's recycling program, but it deserves to be noticed.
15/03/2012 by Richard RoeperI didn't think we needed a '21 Jump Street,' but it's actually kind of funny.
Los Angeles Times
15/03/2012 by Betsy SharkeyMiller and Lord clearly understand the push-and-pull and hyper-competitiveness that make guy friendships both complex and stupid.
15/03/2012 by Claudia PuigIt's that rare comedy that's funny throughout, with a hilarious story that hinges on the unlikely pairing of Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum.
Christian Science Monitor
15/03/2012 by Peter RainerThe basic premise -- that these two are supposed to be high school age and siblings -- is funny, but the joke, as is true of many others in this movie, is replayed way too often.
15/03/2012 by Dana Stevens21 Jump Street makes a virtue of low expectations, like an underachieving high school burnout coasting on his modest reserves of charm.
Wall Street Journal
15/03/2012 by Joe MorgensternThis cheerfully chaotic, gleefully vulgar action-comedy retread of the old television series has box-office success written all over it, and where's the harm? It's irresistibly funny until it isn't.
15/03/2012 by Andrew LapinIt was inevitable that one of Hollywood's many recent reboots would eventually attain sentience. Hence the arrival of 21 Jump Street, a film that not only knows it's a remake, but knows how absurd it has to be to succeed as a remake.

15/03/2012 by Colin Covert"21 Jump Street" thrilled me to itsy-bitsy elated pieces.
15/03/2012 by Wesley MorrisNeither man has had a better foil. They are literally and figuratively trying to bring something out of each other, and they do.
San Francisco Chronicle
15/03/2012 by Peter HartlaubThis film is even better if you come in with no spoilers and low expectations, so we will build it up no more.
15/03/2012 by Carrie RickeyThis potty-mouthed and drug-laced reimagining of the 1980s TV show has one of the highest laughs-per-minute ratios since the Naked Gun films.
15/03/2012 by Peter HowellTatum and Hill steamroller any misgivings right from the start. They take a comedy connection that seemed doomed to fail - pairing Tatum's hunky command with Hill's nerdy neediness - and make it look like the most natural thing in the world.
