The film will probably gain several points on the likability scale for its sheer unexpectedness and modest ambitions.
It jokes about high school but is also a sensitive sociological study of those crucial years.It bridges slapstick and action.
Who else is in fine form.Johnny Depp, who graciously makes a cameo thats hilarious and cheeky and satisfying.

This film is even better if you come in with no spoilers and low expectations, so we will build it up no more.

New York Post
That this loud, profane, drug infused affair has performances of such empathy makes its comedy all the more hilarious.
But its no gross out affair, and its the rare contemporary comedy that doesnt chase cheap laughs.

The Scorecard Review
21 Jump Street is canny enough to know how to laugh with its subject, not at it, which lays a good foundation for its clever script.
The Diva Review
That can be considered a breakthrough in a movie age when originality is measured by how many twists can be made within a straitjacket format.
Jonah Hill is good as well, but it feels like Tatum utterly overshadows him.
