115- 21 Jump Street [7.5]

A pair of underachieving cops are sent back to a local high school to blend in and bring down a synthetic drug ring.

Once again, Jonah Hill continues to surprise me. From Get Him to the Greek to Moneyball and now 21 Jump Street, Hill is turning in one stellar performance after another. Credit also goes to Channing Tatum (who was thoroughly impressive years earlier in A Guide to Recognizing Your Saints, who carries both the humorous and emotional scenes with ease. 21 Jump Street is frequently laugh out loud funny and though the third act gets a bit chaotic, it was certainly much better than I had anticipated.
