8. 21 Jump Street | The Highway Chase
Unlike the original television program, Phil Lord and Chris Millerís 21 Jump Street was more interested in being a comedy than a straight-up action flick. But when it got down to business and let Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum be cops, the co-directors came up with some inspired action bits involving prom-night limousines, penthouse shootouts, and our selection Ö a lengthy highway chase that moved our heroes to multiple cars along a congested freeway. The running gag about potential explosions never got old, and Tatum flirting with a beautiful driver as he jacked her car was both in character and amusing. Lord and Miller brought energy and creativity to what could have been a tired retread, and thatís why Jump Street landed at No. 8.
