Title: 21 Jump Street
Director: Phil Lord, Chris Miller
Run time: 1hr 39
The first time I saw this trailer, I turned my nose up and thought it looked a bit stupid. I don’t know of the original, only what Mr C has told me about Johnny Depp and the like. However, I heard an interview with someone, I forget who, and they said they really liked it. So I watched the trailer again and decided to give it a chance.
00:36 – I didn’t know that lion still roared at the beginning of movies.
03:40 – “Not so slim shady.”
04:35 – I need a gun as an alarm for Mr C!
06:17 – I love that they have flashing red and blue lights on their bikes! No siren though.
07:33 – It does have a siren!
10:36 – Recycling stuff and hoping no one notices. The man is not just talking about police work here.
14:13 – “Cherub-looking” is a new way to describe it.
16:26 – His school had a juggling society? Wow!
19:27 – “I remember. Do you know why? Because I’ve told it to a therapist 8,000 times!”
21:08 – They do always cut away on TV before they finish the rights!
26:24 – Oh god, I hated drama.
28:25 – “You never won’t know what you can’t achieve before you don’t achieve it.”
29:41 – I also hated science. Weird.
36:42 – Flux capacitor mention!
38:10 – Never let someone near a cymbal if they’ve taken something!
43:17 – “I think I know the cause. Glee. F*** you, Glee.” Apologies for the stars here, but this is the best line ever.
53:26 – Shuffling!
1:03:26 – Literally choking!
1:06:22 – His Peter Pan costume looks like Robin Hood. All green and tights.
1:10:14 – Dual controls in a car chase is genius.
1:11:50 – Skinny jeans = tights.
1:21:36 – All the big stuff happens at prom.
1:27:09 – They’ve chased or been chased by them twice, they must recognise them!
1:28:52 – Friendship bracelets!
1:31:43 – I think the people upstairs at the prom might have heard that.
1:37:43 – They saved all the budget from the previous explosions for that one.
1:40:17 – They can’t high five either.
1:44:05 – These are some weird ending credits.
Massively better than I’d thought it would be, and I laughed a lot more than expected. There was far too much swearing, and the occasional low-humour moment, but I could pass them up for the better things. Scenes where it didn’t take itself too seriously, like the genius setup, and the fabulous twist at the end. The duo worked well together, and it sometimes boggled my mind that Jonah Hill is the same Jonah Hill as in Moneyball. Apparently there’s a sequel in the works. I’ll check that one out, too.
