In 21 Jump Street, two unlikely policemen are assigned to infiltrate a high school drug ring. Schmidt, played by Jonah Hill, and Jenko, played by Channing Tatum, go undercover as students to take down the supplier of a new synthetic drug, which has already caused one death at a nearby university. Schmidt and Jenko embark on their undercover operation with the aim to bust the dealer responsible for dealing the potentially-dangerous drug. However, on their first day, they quickly find that high school has changed a lot since they were last students. They are immediately in over their heads with the complicated social hierarchy and the advanced technology the students use. Jenko, who was popular in high school, struggles to fit in with the nerdy kids of today, while Schmidt, who was a social outcast, flourishes as a cool kid.

The film takes a humorous look at the classic high school movie genre, while at the same time parodying the 1980s television series on which the film is based. The film has a mixture of crude humor and action, and also includes satire of both the education system and the police force.

Ice Cube plays the role of Captain Dickson, who is in charge of the undercover operation. He is tough, angry, and constantly yelling at Schmidt and Jenko, but is determined to get results from this case. He is one of the comedic highlights of the film and provides many laughs with his straight-faced delivery of outrageous lines.

As the investigation progresses, Schmidt and Jenko find themselves increasingly at odds with each other, causing their partnership to be strained. Adding to their problems is their growing involvement with a popular student named Molly, played by Brie Larson. Schmidt is attracted to her, while Jenko forms a friendship with her that begins to test their loyalty to the case.

With each new development in the case, Schmidt and Jenko become more determined to solve it and bring down the dealer before any more harm is caused. However, in true comedy fashion, their antics and blunders complicate the investigation and make it increasingly difficult for them to achieve their objectives.

21 Jump Street is a humorous and action-packed comedy that provides a much-needed modern take on the classic television series. It is a great blend of slapstick humor, wit, and satire, making for an enjoyable experience. With great comedic performances from Hill, Tatum, and Ice Cube, this movie is one that is not to be missed.

In conclusion, 21 Jump Street is a must-watch movie for anyone who loves comedy, action, or just a good time at the cinema. It is a hilarious and entertaining film that showcases great performances from its cast and provides a refreshingly modern take on the classic television series.

21 Jump Street is a 2012 action movie. It has received mostly positive reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 7.2 and a MetaScore of 69.
