Jonah Hill, Channing Tatum & Mr. Will-W.
Umm, is anyone as shocked as me that 21 Jump Street is receiving some overwhelmingly positive Reviews? The Action-Comedy sees Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill as Undercover Cops who return to High School to uncover and bring-down a Drug Ring. Children of the '80s will remember the original FOX Series with a little more serious a tone, starring Johnny Depp and Peter Deluise.

Entertainment Weekly's Liz Schwarzbaum says, "It jokes about high school but is also a sensitive sociological study of those crucial years".

Chicago Tribune's Michael Phillips raves, "What was the last stupid Hollywood comedy - good-stupid, not stupid-stupid - to offer actual, audible, verifiable big laughs?".

The Associated Press' David Germain praises, "This is not a property requiring respect and devotion to the source material to satisfy longtime fans, so the filmmakers wisely make a 21 Jump Street all their own.".

Variety's Peter Debruge proclaims, "The Helmers make slick use of their new live-action collaborators. Considering that hardly anyone was asking for a 21 Jump Street reboot, they've put their own playful stamp on it.".

I'm sold.  Let's watch the Red-Band Trailer below:

Sony Pictures releases 21 Jump Street on March 16, 2012.  Will you be seeing 21 Jump Street this weekend?
