'21 Jump Street' Red-Band Trailer: Ice Cube Says 'Twittersphere' Between Sandwich Bites

November 2, 2011


Lending some credibility to the '80s television show remake movie genre--a genre that should neither be a genre nor associated with credibility--the R-rated trailer for 21 Jump Street has appeared on Facebook, and it looks like it could be alright in spite of its shared heritage with The A-Team (2010). Credit for that feat should likely be spread between directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller--who previously somehow adapted Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs into a pretty great film--and co-writers Jonah Hill and Michael Bacall, the latter of which also wrote the just-posted-about Project X. Bacall's strange aptitude at writing high school party scenes in both X and 21 Jump Street should probably be investigated by Chris Hansen and crew, but in the meantime, let's just watch Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill go undercover as unconvincing high schoolers in this trailer. Careful if you're at work, because their mouths speak filth.

May this set the new bar for movies in which Channing Tatum dances with high schoolers.
