GRIECO!  Apparently, the 21 Jump Street movie doesn't suck. I don't know that I'd have been interested otherwise in seeing Academy Award nominee Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum in a buddy cop comedy -- regardless of its provenance and whether it's in fact the male version of Never Been Kissed-- but now I'm intrigued.


  1. I'm intrigued by the overall cast--lots of random people I like--Rob Riggle, Ellie Kemper, Nick Offerman.  In other movies releasing this week, I got into a screening of Jeff, Who Lives at Home, and while it has its moments, it's really kind of a mess in which Jason Segel walks around a city stoned noticing "connections, man!" and we are supposed to find this somehow profound.  That said, Susan Sarandon does some nice work, as always.

    I saw it several weeks ago in an advance screening -- if you aren't all on Gofobo, what are you waiting for? -- and I was surprised at how much my husband and I laughed! It was actually pretty good, and there are enough little throwbacks for fans of the show.

    Also, this is the first movie I have ever liked Channing Tatum in. He's pretty much perfect for this role.

    Also, don't read spoilers. Because some of the throwbacks are a lot more fun if you don't know about them.

  3. Seeing it tomorrow, as my date works with Rob Riggle often and has declared that we "have to support [his] friends."  I was really against seeing it, but these reviews make me feel better.
