At least three comedy subgenres collide self-consciously in "21 Jump Street," and we can't look away. Or stop laughing.

I know you didn't write the script for this so-called "revival" of 21 Jump Street but I think you should go back and watch it again and wait for the demonstration of ignorance when Ice Cube says "What, are you autistic?".... What a slap in the face to the huge autism community and parents like myself who are raising children with autism spectrum disorders----all the awareness we have worked so hard to create about autism for more than a decade---a disability which now affects 1 in 110 individuals! "Rain Man" without the math skills? Such a stereotypical and ignorant presumption of what autism is really about...please readers...don't go and see this movie----- This is just as bad as using the "R" word!

sarahconley1 When will society ever rid itself of its penchant for cruelty? Probably never, so we are destined to always suffer hateful, hurtful and demeaning comments from "society." I don't plan on seeing it either.

This movie was really, really bad. What is wrong with the reviewer? No one was laughing in the theatre where we went to see this based on this article. I was embarrassed for anyone who was involved in creating this thing. What a sorry effort. Don't waste your time or money on this thing. I didn't want to be seen leaving the theatre as I was really humiliated to have spent 2 hours of my life watching this crap.

Interesting comments -- The original '21 Jumpstreet' wasn't a comedy, it was a drama with occasional humorous moments. It was a really great show with many fine actors. This movie will be just a dim shadow of that, thumbs down.
