My Thoughts:
Next I felt like something fun and silly... so thought what better then an old '80s comedy?  This movie I got in a cheap boxset... Too Cool For School Collection. It is one I never seen before... and one I really wasn't expecting much of anything from. And basically what I got is a movie that had a few chuckle... a bit of T&A... and just some silly and fun times. Just something you can sit back and watch... not having to think much about.

My Rating:
Out of a Possible 5

22 Jump Street, a review by Dragonfire


22 Jump Street

I ended up seeing 22 Jump Street a week ago.  I never really wanted to see it, but I got talked into going by a friend.  I should have stuck by my initial instincts. 

I saw 21 Jump Street on one of the Encore channels a few months ago.  I wasn't impressed.  The best part was when Johnny Depp turned up, but that quickly got ruined too.  This movie is mainly more of the same, with Jenko and Schmidt sent undercover at a local college after they screw up a drug bust.  Never mind that they are older than all the other students - they did at least acknowledge that they were too old to pass for high school students.  Jenko manages to become friends with a few football players who are in a fraternity.  Schmidt is left out of that, but he manages to hook up with a girl that is out of his league.  Jenko and Schmidt can't agree on things, and that does cause issues with their investigation. 

Some of what happens is funny, but more often than not, the jokes don't work.  Things are way overdone.  I lost count of the number of times jokes are made about movie sequels or some kind of gay joke is done. The first few times, those things are funny, but they don't know when to stop.  Those jokes keep being used over and over and over, until long after the humor is gone.  Most of the humor is crude in some way, and that also gets old.  Too much of the movie just isn't funny.  The characters are flat and not that interesting.  I don't really like Jonah Hill.  He didn't annoy me as much in this movie, but nothing about his performance in it changed my opinion of him.

I know that 22 Jump Street made a lot of money and got a ton of good reviews.  I don't see it.  For me, the movie was a huge, unfunny mess.  Since the movie was successful, I won't be surprised if they go and make another one.

2 out of 5 stars

I did post a longer review on my movie blog.

Tom's TV Finales marathon, a review by Tom


     Die Camper: Staffel 7-9 (2003/Germany)
IMDb | Wikipedia

AL!VE, Turbine Medien (Germany)
Length:858 min.
Video:Full Frame 1.33:1
Audio:German: Dolby Digital 2.0 Stereo
Subtitles:





Die Camper
Season 9.13 Winterzauber

I only ever saw the first season of this series and stopped watching it in the beginning of the second season when the whole cast was replaced which really bothered me. I bought this DVD set with all nine seasons, because it is the only way to get the first season on DVD. And as the set cost me only as much as usually a single season sells, it was a good deal.
I decided to watch the final episode for this marathon even though I didn't watch the rest. This is a series, where you can watch any episode and not having missed anything. And as I doubt I will watch all the nine seasons any time soon.
The final episode is just an average episode. Not hinting in any way that this is the end of the series. It is nice enough to watch, but nothing special.
