"The only thing getting blown tonight is their cover."
In the action-comedy 21 JUMP STREET, Schmidt (Jonah Hill) and Jenko (Channing Tatum) were enemies in high school who became unlikely friends in Police Academy. While they may not be the best cops on the beat, they have a chance to turn it around when they join the police department's secret Jump Street unit, run by Captain Dickson (Ice Cube).
Trading in their guns and badges for backpacks, they use their youthful appearances to go undercover. However, teenagers today are nothing like they were just a few years ago, and Schmidt and Jenko discover that everything they think they know about being a teenager, from sex to drugs to rock and roll, is all wrong.
Even more importantly, they both find they are still dealing with all of the adolescent problems they didn't address in their own teen years - and both will have to confront the terror and anxiety of being a teenager again and all the issues they thought they had left behind.
The film is directed by Phil Lord and Christopher Miller. The screenplay is by Michael Bacall. Story by Michael Bacall & Jonah Hill. Based on the Television Series created by Patrick Hasburgh & Stephen J Cannell. Produced by Neal H Moritz and Stephen J Cannell.
