After making their way through high school (twice), big changes are in store for officers Schmidt (Jonah Hill) and Jenko (Channing Tatum) when they go deep undercover at a local college. But when Jenko meets a kindred spirit on the football team, and Schmidt infiltrates the bohemian art major scene, they begin to question their partnership. Now they don't have to just crack the case - they have to figure out if they can have a mature relationship. If these two overgrown adolescents can grow from freshmen into real men, college might be the best thing that ever happened to them. (c) Sony

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"This sequel to the hit action comedy 21 Jump Street is better all around: the pacing is more consistent, the sight gags more imaginative, the self-referential jokes sharper."
‑ Ben Sachs, Chicago Reader
"Self-referential irony is hardly a new gimmick, having served as the underlying premise for such franchises as Scream and Austin Powers, but rarely has it been indulged with such fervor."
‑ Christopher Orr, The Atlantic
"Magnificently stupid with flashes of brilliance. "22 Jump Street" is a zany action comedy that fizzles a bit at the end, but generates enough laughter to make it a very worthwhile sequel."
‑ Paul Chambers, Movie Chambers
"Provides another showcase for the ever-shlubby Hill and the ever-hunky Tatum"
‑ Robert Denerstein, Movie Habit
"Its adhering to formula nearly kills the film for that middle hour while the bromance plot thread is arguably based in latent homophobia."
‑ Scott Mendelson, Forbes
"22 Jump Street is hardly fresh, but the picture has enough energy to get by."
‑ David Denby, New Yorker
"Phil Lord and Christopher Miller's second-best film of the year (behind The Lego Movie)."
‑ James Berardinelli, ReelViews
"While "22 Jump Street" may not be quite as funny as its predecessor, it still manages to deliver a multitude of laughs over its stretched runtime, all while using pretty much the same premise."
‑ Jeff Beck, Examiner.com
"Despite some inevitable lulls, several scenes are as consistently funny as anything we've seen for years. And, like Sandra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy in last year's The Heat, the dialogue between the two leads makes up for the holes in the plot."
‑ Graham Young, Birmingham Mail
"While this film is dominated by vulgar, slapstick humor, it is not exactly brain dead. There is a certain self-aware, self-mocking quality to it. It also helps that the characters are basically good guys."
‑ Robert Roten, Laramie Movie Scope
"22 Jump Street is pretty much the exact same movie as 21 Jump Street. It knows it, you know it, and it knows that you know it. And that is why it's brilliant."
‑ Christy Lemire, ChristyLemire.com
"Filmmakers Phil Lord and Chris Miller (who are themselves impressive partners at this point) know enough not to mess with a successful formula."
‑ Bob Mondello, NPR
"If there's a funnier comedy this year, it'll have to be something quite special."
‑ Martin Roberts, Fan The Fire
"Full of inside jokes (hey, we're making a sequel) and fantastic performances, "22 Jump Street" is everything you want in a sequel and more."
‑ Michael A. Smith, MediaMikes
"It doesn't disguise its intention as a blockbuster summer sequel that's more financially than creatively motivated."
‑ Todd Jorgenson, Cinemalogue.com
