TRAILER: Jonah Hill & Channing Tatum's "21 Jump Street"

Plot: An undercover police unit consisting of young looking officers infiltrate high schools to control youth crime.
Cast: Jonah Hill, Channing Tatum, Ice Cube, Dave Franco ("Scrubs"), Rob Riggle (Killers), Ellie Kemper (Bridesmaids), Nick Offerman ("Parks and Recreation"), Brie Larson ("United States of Tara"), Johnny Simmons (Jennifer's Body), DeRay Davis (Jumping the Broom), Jake M. Johnson ("New Girl"), Holly Robinson ("Hanging' with Mr. Cooper"), and, yes, Johnny Depp.
Verdict: Yeah this isn't "21 Jump Street," but it is hilarious. Purists will be disappointed. Fans of the moron cops in Superbad, The Other Guys, and Hot Fuzz, however, will be elated. That's what these two are. Idiots with guns. Rookie cops are going to love this. It reflects every single complaint they have about their underwhelming job so far. Also, I'm so happy that Tatum managed to buck the meathead curse and actually be funny unlike his predecessors The Rock and Mark Wahlberg who still have a long way to go. My favorite parts of the trailer (where I burst out laughing in my cubicle smh) were when Jonah asked "What the fuck are those?" referring to a clique, he got stabbed without realizing it, and he tried to jump over a car. For his first writing credit, I think the kid's gonna do just fine.

Release Date: March 16
