Critical Mass: Is '22 Jump Street' tickle or torture?

The first 21 Jump Street reboot movie didn’t just safely navigate the traps and pot holes of cheesy TV adaptations — it made the exercise a breezy art. Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum’s odd-couple pairing as two narc cops going undercover at a high school snuck up on critics — a luxury they don’t have at their disposal in the sequel.

But that doesn’t seem to be stopping director Phil Lord and Christopher Miller (The LEGO Movie) from doubling down on the same comic sensibility. The only thing that’s changed for 22 Jump Street is the setting — college — and the cool-character role reversal — Tatum’s Jenko is now “in,’ while Hill’s Schmidt is “out.” But the “sequel-itis” of Hollywood sequels is now one of the directors’ biggest gags.

The film reportedly is tracking well, and Sony is hoping for a $50 million opening weekend — which is Ted territory. EW’s critic Chris Nashawaty labored under the layers of meta-humor, but at least the stars have the same magic. “Hill and Tatum continue to have such great chemistry,” he writes. “Hill’s neurotic-motormouth act and Tatum’s lovable-lunkhead shtick still shoot giddy sparks.”

'22 Jump Street' NSFW trailer: Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum try something new -- VIDEO

Fans of 21 Jump Street already know the Channing Tatum/Jonah Hill sequel is likely going to be pretty outrageous.

But now viewers have got some more specifics, and they’re pretty raunchy. In the international red-band trailer for the comedy, Hill and Tatum reunite at college, where fitting in as undercover cops yields two very different campus experiences.

“I always joke with Jonah about how serious an actor he is now that he’s been nominated [for an Oscar] twice, and how I’m always trying to do big action movies,” Tatum previously told EW about the film. “So he takes his character super-serious when he’s undercover, and I’m always doing unnecessary action. There’s even a dig at White House Down.

You’ll have to check out the film for the remark about Tatum’s Roland Emmerich project, but below, you can watch Tatum throw a pink dildo at Hill. If the previous sentence didn’t warn you, this trailer is extremely NSFW: READ FULL STORY

Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum are in couples counseling.

Their characters went through a lot in 21 Jump Street – and now that they’re back for a sequel, it’s no surprise the two might need a little help learning to communicate again. Such is the deal when you’re sent back to college to bust a drug ring.

In this newest red band trailer for 22 Jump Street, we see Hill and Tatum re-learn the ins and outs of college life (“hilarious shirt that signals we drink alcohol”) as well as SPRING BREAK. (Is it too much to hope that James Franco’s Alien might make an appearance? Probably.)
