Brand New '21 Jump Street' Trailer Reminds Us that the Movie Still HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH THE TV SHOW

By Dustin Rowles | Trailers | December 20, 2011 | Comments ()


Sorry about the ALL CAPS there, folks, but it cannot be stressed enough: Jonah Hill's 21 Jump Street movie has about as much to do with the original show as Drew Barrymore's Never Been Kissed does, which is to say: It transplants adults into a high school setting, but that's about it. And given the general disdain for big-screen adaptations of television shows that are not "Mission Impossible" and the little value in the "21 Jump Street" brand name, it's baffling to me why they even bothered. Just call it: Charming Potato and Skinny Jonah Revisit Superbad ... with Guns?

Here's the new trailer, and guess what? Nick Offerman still has to deliver a line so bar beneath him Ron Swanson actually put down the bacon.

And here's a new poster to choke on, you insufferable ingrates. Note the tagline, and then picture Jonah Hill getting a hummer. Merry Christmas!
