21 Jump Street

21 Jump Street ★★★★

A self aware film that pokes fun at its flaws while being more funny and original than it had any right being. The film surprised me in a big way.
The best parts of the film are in its satirization of action movies and teen films, but does recycle a lot of what makes it good throughout the film.
Hill and Tatum make for a great team and Ice Cube and Offerman do well in their short onscreen time. The cameos in the film are a great nod to the source material and a fun addition.
My Take: A fun film that knows what it is and hits its mark and exceeds. Great performance from the leading duo.
