Okaaaay. It worked before, now let's milk it. At least this time our heroes are in college... With a team of writers (a total of SEVEN), co-directors Christopher Miller and Phil Lord, who have collaborated before on ("The Lego Movie," "21 Jump Street," and "Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs"), are visiting familiar territory: Our characters work undercover in an educational environment sullied by drug sales to youngsters. Problem is, our two heroes aren't sure if they can make the leap to adulthood and a mature friendship, even with a certified couple's counselor!
This R-rated outing starts with a brief recap of the previous movie, much like the TV show always included a recap of the previous episode. The audience really laughed at this inside joke. It has a LOT of profanity, physical humor, anatomical jokes, visits from "21 Jump Street" characters, and some goofy vehicular mayhem. We saw gunfights and fisticuffs, but the only blood I remember was from a shoulder wound on one of our heroes.
The screening audience was ready to enjoy this one, and they did!
To me, the tongue-in-cheek imagining of future sequels (grad school, flight school, dental school, beauty school, driver's ed, ad infinitum) during the final credits scroll, was almost funnier than the movie itself.
