Interactive 21 Jump Street Trailer Is More Evidence That This Movie Is Hilarious
Based on the comments we've been getting from you guys every time we post about 21 Jump Street, the word still hasn't gotten out that this movie adaptation of the 80s TV is pretty much the opposite of what you'd expect from a terrible 80s remake. Directed by Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs's Philip Lord and Chris Miller, and with a comic performance from Channing Tatum that will seriously blow you away, 21 Jump Street is dirty and hilarious and feels totally original-- as I wrote in my rave review, it's a combination of a surprisingly touching buddy story and wild, aburdist comedy that works really, really well.
Still don't believe me? Take a look at this new, extended and interactive trailer, in which you can choose to pause to answer trivia questions and get a score based on your right answers (I earned a "Park Patrol" badge, which isn't really so hot). The quiz is fun but silly, but the trailer shows a lot of new clips from the movie that should prove how funny it is. Don't worry, it doesn't spoil the best jokes, and if you're still on the fence about the movie hopefully this might convince you.
Even if you're not convinced, I swear it's worth taking a gamble on this, and with almost nothing else opening in wide release, you don't really have a choice. Do yourself the favor of seeing 21 Jump Street, and I promise not to gloat too much when you come back and tell me how great it is.
