This movie was putrid. I'm not sure it could be any more unfunny. The fact that it was even supposed to be funny baffles me. If I could have given it less than 1 star on Netflix, I would have.

Just bad, so very bad.

I was a teenager during the days that 21 JS was a t.v. series, and I always believed this show was important because it covered a lot of issues that teenagers had to face and that their parents refused to address; violence, death, rape, preganancy, narcotics, broken families, or D: ALL OF THE ABOVE. The fact that 21 JS was then converted into a completely unfunny movie with two leads who have the same amount of charisma and chemistry as two pet rocks just insults the great thing that 21 JS was back-in-the-day. I will say of this retro-resurrection the same thing that I decree for all others: if it came from the 80's, and possibly the 90's, it's better just to leave it there...

And that's all I have to say about that.

Nailed it! Though the new film was sorta funny... I would have liked it more if it had not been called 21 Jump Street.

Is this change in brand a metaphor for how the youth of today views serious problems? Anybody see Juno? We have comedies about teenage pregnancy... We sure didn't have that 20 years ago.
