Three buddies wake up from a bachelor party in Las Vegas, with no memory of the previous night and the bachelor missing. They make their way around the city in order to find their friend before his wedding.
After making their way through high school (twice), big changes are in store for officers Schmidt (Jonah Hill) and Jenko (Channing Tatum) when they go deep undercover at a local college. But when Jenko meets a kindred spirit on the football team, and Schmidt infiltrates the bohemian art major scene, they begin to question their partnership. Now they don't have to just crack the case - they have to figure out if they can have a mature relationship. If these two overgrown adolescents can grow from freshmen into real men, college might be the best thing that ever happened to them. Written by

When Schmidt and Jenko are spying on the frat boys with the cameras they just installed, the frat boys are debating whether or not to recruit Schmidt and have his Facebook page up in the screen behind them. On his Facebook page we can see activity that reads he "liked" Molly Tracey's photo. Molly is is Schmidt's love interest in 21 Jump Street (2012). See more »

Gentlemen, you're not gonna sit here
[places pistol down on desk]
& pretend there's not a big-ass elephant in the room.
What the fuck is going on?
[turns picture frame on desk around, revealing a photo of Maya]
*This* is what the fuck is going on!
[looks at the picture confused, looks at Schmidt, then back at the picture as he realizes]
OH SHIT! Oh Shit!
[laughs hysterically at Schmidt]
Oh shit! No! That is not happening right now!

It's pretty easy to review this one. If you liked the first one, you're in for a treat. It holds up to the expectations and plays cleverly with 'being aware' of making basically the same movie again. The good thing about this flick is, that it doesn't take itself too seriously while at the same time delivering a good and fast paced story with quite some surprises and good action. I basically laughed from the first minute up to the (awesome!) end credits! If you like that type of comedy, this one is for you, as it delivers on point and, without a doubt, is the funniest flick this year so far! Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum have a great chemistry and you can see and feel, how they enjoyed doing this movie. Like the first one, 22 Jump Street does a great job observing the different aspects of college life, students and teachers (or professors for that matter). Everyone who's been to college can relate to those stereotypes (e.g. the pseudo intellectuals, the sport jocks, the art students etc.) and directors Phil Lord and Christopher Miller ("The Lego Movie") do a great job spoofing those clichés while at same time debunk the downsides and shallowness of those groups or college life in general.
Verdict: Go see it, if you liked the first one. I can't say if it's better, but it certainly holds up. And I liked the first one pretty much. So there you go...
