High school is nearly upon us once again. God help us. Thankfully, this time we’ll only be going back to high school for two hours or so when we watch the comedy “21 Jump Street”. That is, if you decide to watch the movie, opening everywhere March 16, 2012. If you’re still undecided, here is a nearly 5-minute extended Red Band clip (more like a trailer or sizzle reel, to be perfectly honest with you) for the movie to help you convince you. Or not.
In the action-comedy 21 Jump Street, Schmidt (Jonah Hill) and Jenko (Channing Tatum) are more than ready to leave their adolescent problems behind. Joining the police force and the secret Jump Street unit, they use their youthful appearances to go undercover in a local high school. As they trade in their guns and badges for backpacks, Schmidt and Jenko risk their lives to investigate a violent and dangerous drug ring. But they find that high school is nothing like they left it just a few years earlier and neither expects that they will have to confront the terror and anxiety of being a teenager again and all the issues they thought they had left behind.
Also starring Brie Larson, Dave Franco, Rob Riggle, Ice Cube, Ellie Kemper, Dakota Johnson, Johnny Simmons, and Jake M. Johnson. Directed by Phil Lord and Christopher Miller.
