#22JumpStreet(English) Rating: * * Asinine bumbling-tricks, The sensibility in this redux-masquerading-as-sequel is too radically American to seem as funny to the rest of the world. Slap-shtick, physical and verbal comedy without the timing or the fluidity to make it enjoyable! #ChanningTatum #JonahHill # # #SonyPictures #AnjaliMalhotra
English Film review
Tedious Americanisms on redux!
Film: 22 Jump Street
Cast: Channing Tatum, Jonah Hill
Director: Phil Lord, Christopher Miller
Rating: * *
’22 jump Street’ with a title incremented by one from that of the prequel, intended as a spoof of the popular TV series, has little on offer other than a repetitive overload of the same old unfunny spoofs.
The movie picks up where its predecessor,21 Jump Street (a spoof-adaptation of the TV series of the same name), left off. Undercover mismatched buddy cops Schmidt (Jonah Hill) and Jenko (Channing Tatum) are sent to the new headquarters of Captain Dickson (Ice Cube) at 22 Jump Street. And it’s a sort of cathedral converted into an HQ for the undercover cops. Last time round they ended up in school, so this time they have been promoted to do their undercover assignment in college. They have to bust a drug dealer responsible for a young collegian’s death. As expected, while on campus, they begin to lose focus on their goal when Schmidt(Jonah Hill) hooks up with an attractive co-ed (Amber Stevens) and Jenko(Channing Tatum) finds his new lease playing football alongside his new best friend, Zook (Wyatt Russell).
It’s a boring plotline with nowhere to go but downhill. There’s nothing interesting happening other than standard fare Americanized dysfunctions. There’s nothing clever here and the spoofs are so devoid of humor that one would have been forgiven for thinking this was a wake. And it is , for the demise of this all-too-tedious schlock passing off as humorous entertainment! Hope there isn’t another one following close on this one’s heels!
