Blu-ray Release: 22 Jump Street

November 18, 2014

22 Jump Street Blu-ray

Today, Sony Pictures is releasing 22 Jump Street on Blu-ray, a very entertaining comedy that smartly references its own sequel status.  Police officers Schmidt (Jonah Hill) and Jenko (Channing Tatum) are going back undercover, and this time Captain Dickson (Ice Cube) is sending them to college, where there is a new drug making the rounds.  But their partnership is tested when Jenko joins the football team, and Schmidt finds his place in the art scene.

The first 21 Jump Street was one of the funniest comedies in recent memory, and if 22 Jump Street isn’t quite as fresh, this sequel makes up for it with a completely unhinged sense of humour.  This is the sort of comedy that goes all out to bring the laughs, but perhaps the biggest reason that the film is so much fun is the bromantic pairing of Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum, who are some of the best at this type of humour.  You can read my full review right here.

The Blu-ray includes 22 deleted and extended scenes, commentary with directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller as well as the two leads, and a bunch of other fun stuff.

22 Jump Street is 112 minutes and rated 14A.
