22 Jump Street
Schmidt and Jenko are back on the scene, undercover and looking to bust a dangerous drug ring that has infested a local college campus. But the leap from high school to college means big changes for the partners, including jealousy, new love interests, and sneering roommates. Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill star; Phil Lord and Christopher Miller direct. Read our review here.

As Nick Offerman has teased in 22 Jump Street's trailers, 21 Jump Street was a comedy that many suspected wouldn't work. TV spin-offs are often accused of being lazy cash grabs, but sometimes they spin into something great. Revel in TV-inspired movies done right with this trio that boasts bone-headed public access stars, a goofy but loveable family, and some All-American heroes.

Wayne's World (1992) Mike Meyers and Dana Carvey spun their most popular Saturday Night Live characters into a wild new adventure where Wayne and Garth are offered the chance to take their Milwaukee public access show to the next level. But can they trust the slick TV producer (Rob Lowe)? Tia Carrerre and Laura Flynn Boyle co-star; Penelope Spheeris directs.

The Addams Family (1991) Inspired by the macabre 1960s television show, this family comedy follows the adventures of a clan that is creepy, kooky, mysterious and loads of fun. The Addams family is wealthy and content, but missing a member since Fester went missing years ago. Their crooked accountant plans to exploit this loss to weasel money out of the affluent Gomez Addams. And he thinks he's found the perfect imposter. Anjelica Huston, Raul Julia, Christopher Lloyd and Christina Ricci star; Barry Sonnenfeld directs.

G.I. Joe: Retaliation (2013) 22 Jump Street and this action-packed title have a lot in common. Both are based on popular programs from the 1980s. Both are sequels, and both star Channing Tatum. In this one, Tatum plays a soldier in an elite anti-terrorist force dedicated to defeating the villainous intentions of Cobra. But when the team is framed for treason, their battle goes underground, primed for a major showdown. Dwayne Johnson, Jonathan Pryce, Byung-hun Lee, Bruce Willis and Ray Stevenson co-star; Jon M. Chu directs.
