I thought this film was only okay, but in the Titan X auditorium the attendance was pathetically low. Cheap laughs, poor transitions, with the ending credits showing Hill and Tatum in medical school as 23 Jump Street, and somewhere close to 40 Jump Street when they're in a retirement home, with even an eventual 41 Jump Street, but all this was mostly tongue-in-cheek.

21 Jump Street was, of course, a TV series between 1987 and 1991, where Johnny Depp was a regular, and Josh Brolin, Christina Applegate, Thomas Hadden Church, Vince Vaughn, Martin Luther King, Ronald Reagan and Brad Pitt (left) made at least one appearance.
