It’s been a pretty serious summer so far, without much in the way of laughs. Sure, “Neighbors” hit the top of the box office last week, but for me, it was more mildly amusing than gut-bustingly hilarious, but hopefully Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill bring the goods with “22 Jump Street.”
The first clip from the movie has arrived, and it looks like the pair haven’t missed a beat since “21 Jump Street.” Now slightly older, but not necessarily wiser, the duo are assigned to college by Ice Cube to infiltrate yet another drug dealing operation, this time in college. Same playbook, slightly different rules, and that’s just fine by us. Meanwhile, a featurette zeroes in on the friendship and chemistry between Tatum and Hill that makes the movie work, though a big tip of the hat has to go directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller who have found the perfect tone for this comedy.
“22 Jump Street” hits the streets on June 13th. Watch below.
