I should start by saying I never watched the original TV show, but this is fantastic film stands alone.
Jenko (Channing Tatum) and Schmidt (Jonah Hill) work for undercover police department, Jump Street. Their assignment? To infiltrate a high school and bring down a drug ring.
Although this may at first glance appear to be full of obvious humour, it also does an excellent job of playing off these expectations. This is not your average teen comedy with a drug bust thrown in.
Directed by Christopher Miller and Phil Lord, the team behind The Lego Movie, it is just brilliant.
