Movies like 22 Jump Street are meta genre parody comedies starring Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum as college students in disguise. Both actors are in their 30s, but they play characters who are actually much younger than they actually are. This is a fun twist and makes the film more entertaining.
Action-comedy The Spy Who Dumped Me
The Spy Who Dumped Me is an action comedy directed by Susanna Fogel and co-written by David Iserson. Starring Mila Kunis, Justin Theroux, Sam Heughan, Kate McKinnon, and Hasan Minhaj, the film was released in 2018 to mixed reviews.
The action-comedy has high body count, but it avoids the typical cliches of the action genre. The main characters are too much fun to be scared. They’re two innocent people caught up in a geopolitical game. As the two learn to survive their dangerous assignment, they discover that they’re pretty good at spying.
Laugh-out-loud buddy cop film Pineapple Express
The sequel to 22 Jump Street is not a reboot or sequel, but it takes its concept and direction a step further. It moves from bromance comedy to buddy cop comedy. While it loses a few laugh-out-loud moments, the raunchy humor fills in the rest.
The buddy cop genre has been around for ages, but few films are consistently as funny as “Pineapple Express.” For starters, there’s Michael Cimino’s 1974 classic, “Thunderbolt and Lightfoot.” Cimino is a prolific filmmaker, known for epics like “The Deer Hunter” and “Heaven’s Gate,” which stars Clint Eastwood as Thunderbolt and Jeff Bridges as Lightfoot.
Pineapple Express is another laugh-out-loud buddy cop movie, but this time, the protagonists are stoners. James Franco and Seth Rogen play stoner characters, and Danny McBride and Craig Robinson provide supporting roles. David Gordon Green’s style is eclectic and his action sequences have a surprising edge.
If you enjoy teen comedy flicks, you might enjoy Superbad. It’s a 2007 comedy centered around three high school seniors who are eager to have fun and party. One of them, Seth, has a crush on Emma Stone, and the others are just like him – eager to have a good time. When Jules’ birthday party approaches and Jules invites all three of them, they offer to buy some alcohol. The problem is that none of them are legally allowed to drink alcohol, and Fogell has to solve this by acquiring an ID with a fake name (McLovin).
Superbad is still considered one of the greatest teen comedies of all time. Its cast includes Jonah Hill, Seth Rogen, and others who give great performances. It is a classic teen comedy and one of the most influential movies of the 2000s. It is also considered one of the best high school movies of all time.
Another teen comedy movie that is similar to Superbad is “Good Boys.” It follows three pre-teen boys, who are attending a party and encountering mishaps on their way there. They must also fix a drone that has crashed in the park. While the plot lines differ from “Superbad”, they share similar themes.
Although it lacks the original movie’s groundbreaking comedic themes, it maintains the humor and atmosphere of the first film. It also features a cast of two great leading men who work well together. It is also an excellent comedy that takes advantage of the original movie’s success. It captures the same spirit of humor, while offering more exciting and enjoyable moments.
The sequel to Superbad was released in August 2014, and is an incredibly popular R-rated comedy. It received high critical praise and was a smash box office hit. Its sequel, 22 Jump Street, has since become the second highest grossing R-rated comedy of all time. If you’re not in Australia, you can rent 22 Jump Street on Apple iTunes or Fetch.
“21 Jump Street” has also cemented Hill’s reputation as a movie star. It’s a clever comedy that stars Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum. The characters pretend to be high school students while being FBI agents. The movie is extremely intelligent, and is a must-watch for fans of comedy.
While the movie may not be perfect, it’s still worth seeing if you enjoy the genre. The film is a great romp about high school life and the struggles it causes. The wacky plotline is reminiscent of the classic “Superbad” series. This movie will make you laugh and cry at the same time, so don’t miss out on it.
