I’m not one to see the goofy young adult movies. But in an effort to change, get out of my comfort zone and light the hell up, I went and saw 22 Jump Street. Let me repeat again this is not the kind of movie I watch. Not at all! And I must say I was pleasantly surprised. I had fun, I laughed out loud, yes right along with the teenagers and I felt no shame. I really enjoyed.
I’ve long since been a fan of Jonah Hill even though I haven’t seen his lighter work. But I respect as artist, a young man, and business man. He seems very ground yet fun. So he was the main reason I went to see the film. But I must say I enjoyed Channing Tatum as well. These guys had great chemistry, and they were funny. I love how Jonah has no problem making fun at himself and being the joke. And I love how Channing accepted the “dumb jock” role. These guys have really embraced their casting and have building a good solid career from it.
So if you haven’t seen it, give it a go. You’ll have a good time.
