SYNOPSIS: A pair of underachieving cops are sent back to a local high school to blend in and bring down a synthetic drug ring. – via IMDB
Going in blind, I had no idea what was coming. Needless to say, I absolutely loved how this all came together.
These two had hopes and dreams for after the academy… and definitely a different vision of reality than what they got.
The fact that these two are cops and didn’t even read the Miranda Rights. Watching a few movies will make you an expert on the lines!
Schmidt’s epic prayer closer…
How in touch Dickson was with Korean Jesus’s needs and time schedule.
I don’t even need to say anything, they were pretty dead on.
Jenko’s view of an epic prom was pretty funny.
And that dream was realised.
The worst way to start the school year was a thing of beauty for me.
Kids thinking they’re all cool being dealers and stuff… I mean seriously?!
Definitely not on drugs… never occurred to me…
The absolutely desperation to get the drugs out of their system, and the nasty stuff they were prepared to do to purge themselves of it.
I absolutely loved Jenko’s shift in what chemistry and science meant to him and what it turned out to be.
How amazingly in tune you can get with stuff you don’t know when you’re tripping.
How ridiculously geeky and cute Jenko was by the end of it all after clicking the whole smart thing.
Eric was so emotionally weird sometimes.
The absolutely epic and ridiculous fight between Schmidt and Jenko.
Raiding an evidence locker really must make for a hell of a party!
Schmidt was such a twit, but I won’t deny that him being the latest “badass” and Jenko being the loser that needed protecting was hilarious.
I cannot believe that I had never though to see this until Cara told me that it was certainly worth the watch. I had never seen Channing Tatum in a comedic role (and I do enjoy him as an actor), so watching his clip with Jimmy Fallon a while ago had me giggling quite a bit, so I figured I would check this one out. I was entertained for the entire duration of the movie. It never pretends to be something it isn’t, and even makes fun of it. Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill are also just excellent together, truly working off of each other, complementing the other’s work from the get go. That bromance is just awesome, no two ways about it. There is so much ridiculous crammed into one movie, yet it all managed to work. It made me laugh, which I did not expect, just due to how ludicrous it was, embracing what it was, and putting it out there. It was definitely a breath of fresh air. I am not usually a fan of comedies because I find most of them to be really daft, but this one had fun with all that was going on, and wasn’t necessarily just stupid humour throughout. I loved the whole commentary that was delivered on how much has changed in schools about what and who is cool and what isn’t. The times are truly changing, and Jenko had a lot of difficulty accepting this. Schmidt, on the other hand, realised that he was definitely born too soon. The storyline is predictable, what with them being opposites, then the best of friends, and then being torn apart by popularity, no matter that they are adults. Never mind that, though, it never has a moment where any of this is considered boring, and the implementation is just spot on. Definitely a fan of this!
