Movie Reviews

  • what this fast, cheeky, and very funny interpretation of the original premise sacrifices in teachable moments, it makes up for in intelligent giddiness
    Review rate : A- by Lisa Schwarzbaum [Entertainment Weekly ]
  • there are so many reasons this buddy comedy shouldn't work, but it earns an A in practically every subject
    3.5 of 5 by Kelsea Stahler [Hollywood.Com ]
  • the use of profanity makes 21 Jump Street seem more juvenile than adult
    2.5 of 4 by James Berardinelli [ReelViews ]
  • the show's strength was that it was serious about silly premise
    4.5 of 5 by Sara Maria Vizcarrondo [Boxoffice Magazine ]
  • the longer this Abbott and Costello's Lethal Weapon goes on, the more the fun dissipates-until a queasily violent climax
    3 of 5 by Keith Uhlich [Time Out New York ]
  • the irreverent result feels fresher than most '80s-show reboots, effectively flipping the address Johnny Depp made famous
    by Peter Debruge [Variety ]
  • the film is stuffed with lowbrow meta stylings
    3.5 of 5 by Glenn Kenny [MSN Movies ]
  • the fact that this is a remake of an old show is not lost on anyone involved
    3.5 of 5 by Bill Goodykoontz [Arizona Republic ]
  • the drug humor in "21 Jump Street" carries its own distinction, in that it's actually humor
    3 of 4 by Michael Phillips [Chicago Tribune ]
  • thanks to charming leads and a smattering of laughs, this is still worth a punt for fans of light buddy comedies
    3 of 5 by Anna Smith [Time Out ]
  • only mildly amusing, a film that was probably a lot funnier in the writers' room than it is on the screen
    by Marshall Fine [Hollywood & Fine ]
  • like many almost-great comedies, 21 Jump Street is frontloaded with the best go-for-broke gags and lines
    3 of 4 by Jaime N. Christley [Slant Magazine ]
  • keep the comic pace humming along agreeably with the same sort of animated energy they provided for those raining meatballs
    by Michael Rechtshaffen [Hollywood Reporter ]
  • its charms wear thin the longer it goes on and the climax is needlessly violent
    3 of 5 by Henry Fitzherbert [Daily Express ]
  • if you don't like dick jokes, don't go
    by David Poland [Movie City News ]
  • All they do now is recycle shit from the past and expect nobody to notice
    by Melissa Anderson [Village Voice ]
