Review: 21 Jump Street (2012)

21 Jump Street is an action/comedy movie based on the tv series of the same name from back in 1987. Two failed cops are sent back to high-school, in an undercover mission, to try to bring down a drug ring.  A far cry from the original series, this was one entertaining movie!
