This R-rated trailer for 21 Jump Street is actually pretty funny

4 years agoby:

Well, it's not the 21 JUMP STREET you grew up on but it's pretty damn funny nonetheless.

CLOUDY WITH A CHANCE OF MEATBALLS is an entertaining little flick but not many purple knew what to think when directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller were hired to work on the comedic remake of the acclaimed drama series 21 JUMP STREET, especially one with a script written by Jonah Hill. He's not exactly a Johnny Depp type, after all, and to hear that he was starring in the film as well it became obvious that they were taking the series in an entirely new direction.

From this just-released trailer 21 JUMP STREET feels more like another Jonah Hill film like SUPERBAD than anything else, which could definitely turn off purists. But still, it's about cops infiltrating a high school. How serious could you get?

Note that this is a three minute long trailer that feels like it gives away the whole film, or at least most of the jokes. Watch at your own risk!

this seems like it might be one of the times where an idea seemed destined to suck and then does the complete opposite

you look like a 40 year old fuckin man

It's funny how people seem to think 21 Jump Street was like the best show for its time, to turn it into a comedy only makes sense..same went for Starsky & Hutch & Charlies Angels..all fun flix...haters gonna hate.

Looks good

Looks pretty funny, but what I really want to know is; why did you have "purple" on the mind? I'm not sure I've ever seen that typo before

i think they did their job here...it looks funny...and the refs to how old they look make the movie work, bc there's no way this would have been pulled off unless the humor referenced some of the awkwardness these 2 guys would be going thru....it's like "never been kissed"...with guns and cops.

Not gonna lie, that looks funny. Never really saw 21 Jump St, so not sure what the connections are (if any) between the show and movie. Either way, looks at least worth a dvd showing..

Apart from the Depp connection, I know nothing about 21 Jump Street. So, coming in to this with no prior knowledge...all I can say is that trailer was very funny (and Tatum had some funny lines and scenes - why the need to always hate on him? Cage gets that treatment too - is it just the cool thing to do?).

IDK...I loved the series when it was on. Watched every week. This seems to be more of a sorta sequel to it. But yet, maybe it'll be good.

What can I say? I never watched 21 Jump Street, but this actually looks pretty funny to me. I like how people keep talking about how old they look.

So most of us on this site agree that Hollywood has about as much creativity anymore as people who sling shit on a canvas and call it art. So Hollywood figures,"Well hell!" lets turn a cheesy 80's teen drama into a silly comedy so we look original. Nice try, but still not buying.

Looks funny. Maybe I shouldn't write off Tatum so quickly. We'll just have to wait and see.

This trailer did nothing for me. It's another Jonah Hill movie. It's pretty much exactly like his other comedic films. Why take a series like 21 Jump Street and just turn it into a clone of other Jonah Hill comedies? This could have been a great parody of the original series. If ever there was a movie to poke fun of the 80's, this was it. Instead, they try to target the same kind of humor that has been done to death. I feel this is a waste of an opportunity to not only do something a bit

Meh, could go either way. I hate Channing Tatum with a passionate fire though, I think he's a terrible actor.

AHHH...

WHAT THE HELL IS THIS?!! All of us who enjoyed the original show which was gritty and fun at times has been slapped in the face with this B.S. Hollywood really knows how to F-UP a good idea and story. I guess you figured out I will not be seeing this crap! Total insult to the show.

Why?

This could have been decent if it weren't trying to cash in on the "21 Jump Street" name. It may have a similar idea, but seriously? Why?

At points it looks like a funnier Observe and Report but at other moments it feels more like an awful attempt at an MTV version of The Other Guys.

The ironic part of your statement is that both Seth Rogen and Jonah Hill lost a lot of weight before filming their movies, so they are not fat anymore (especially Jonah Hill). That being said, I had the exact same thought. It's funny how both comedic actors are given the key to popular television franchises. Oh, and both had to include a party scene.
