Overview

After making their way through high school (twice), big changes are in store for officers Schmidt and Jenko 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.

**From a review written in 2014:** I’m sure if I really thought about it, I could easily fault _22 Jump Street_, second in the recent reboot of the 1987 TV series. But I don’t want to think about it, ‘cause I had a good time and that’s how I choose to remember it. To Hell with what so-called “professional” critics are saying, _22 Jump Street_ is not dumb. It’s actually pretty bloody smart. It’s not particularly deep. Or thought-provoking. Or fresh. Or original. Or mature. Or cultured. Or subtle… But it is smart! And funny. Which for a comedy is more important than anything else. _22 Jump Street_ is very aware of itself, and that can be a tough line to walk, but I think it just managed to get right, brining in some serious meta-humour rather than coming across as arrogant or lazy. Just. I’m not particularly big on comedies, and American comedies are certainly pretty low even on that list. But I have been known to come across the odd pleasant surprise. _21 Jump Street_ was one of them (especially considering I assumed it would be akin to the original series, which was a straight laced procedural crime drama…) and now 22 Jump Street is another I can add to that list. _75%_ _-Gimly_
