22 Jump Street movie scene

The boys and their guns are back in 22 Jump Street.

Jonah Hill (Moneyball) and Channing Tatum (Haywire) return to idiotic action in the comedy action flick 22 Jump Street, a sequel to you-know-what from 2012…

After making their way through high school (twice), big changes are in store for officers Schmidt (Hill) and Jenko (Tatum) when they go deep undercover at a local college. But when Jenko meets a kindred spirit on the football team, and Schmidt infiltrates the bohemian art major scene, they begin to question their partnership.  Now they don’t have to just crack the case – they have to figure out if they can have a mature relationship. If these two overgrown adolescents can grow from freshman to real men, college might be the best thing that ever happened to them.

Directed by Phil Lord and Christopher Miller (21 Jump Street), the $314 million worldwide box office hit also stars Ice Cube (Boyz N the Hood), Peter Stormare (Pain & Gain) and Nick Offerman (In A World…).
