21 Jump Street ★★★★

Based on the popular TV show of the same name, 21 Jump Street is one of the most consistently entertaining comedies the year has to offer so far. Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum are a perfect duo and dish out nearly non-stop laughs with a surprisingly heartfelt touch. Ice Cube and Rob Riggle are scene-stealers with their delightfully vulgar comedic styles. Michael Bacall's script embraces the classic teen comedy cliches and provides a cleverly satiric view of this generation's stereotypes. The directing team of Phil Lord and Chris Miller puts a fresh spin on the formula with plenty of action and violence.
