22 Jump Street is a self-aware sequel and it’s opening passages referencing ‘the same again’ are an effective break down of the 4th wall to assure the audience this won’t be another comedy sequel. A rare comedy sequel in that it is arguably even funnier than 21 Jump Street. Clocking in at just over the regular comedy running time it’s a hilarious middle finger to the formulaic nature of sequels and the standardisation of films.
The great escapism
Verdict – 8/10
