Channing Tatum is Surprisingly Funny in '21 Jump Street'


Peter Travers assumed that 21 Jump Street would be an egregious piece of crap based on its trailer, but as it turns out, this update of the old Eighties tv show starring Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum turns out to be silly and fun. Tatum, who is typically pretty dull on screen is hilarious in this, and Johnny Depp is sharp in a cameo in which he reprises the character that made him a star.
