Release Date: March 16, 2012
Director: Phil Lord & Chris Miller (Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs)Cast: Jonah Hill, Channing Tatum, Ice Cube, Ellie Kemper, Dave Franco, Rob Riggle and Johnny Depp (cameo)
Category: Movie reboot of the 1980s TV show.
Our take: Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum are two of the most divisive young stars currently working in Hollywood; people tend to either love or hate them, respectively. That's going to be the biggest obstacle for the 21 Jump Street movie - more so than the odd choice of having Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs directors Phil Lord & Chris Miller calling the shots. And, while the 21 Jump Street trailer was funny enough, this reboot is pretty much Jump Street in name and premise only. Beyond that, it's just your average buddy-cop action/comedy.
