In '21 Jump Street,' Hill and Tatum are two police officers who are fresh out of the academy. Neither of them show a whole lot of promise as cops and, after they botch their first big arrest, they're (quickly) reassigned. The pair pose as brothers, going undercover at a local high school to try and bust a drug ring. As the pair get closer to uncovering the truth, they're forced to confront some old issues from their teen years -- with hilarious results. '21 Jump Street' also stars Ice Cube, Brie Larson, Rob Riggle, Dave Franco (James Franco's younger brother), Ellie Kemper and Nick Offerman, among others. And yes, original '21 Jump Street' TV show cast member Holly Robinson Peete reprises her role as Officer Judy Hoffs!

    Punching Your Genital Area

    Video: YouTube

    Thug: "You guys even real cops? You look like kids on Halloween."
    Jenko: "Hey! You want me to beat your d*ck off?"
    Thug: "You want to beat my d*ck off?"
    Jenko: "I'll beat your d*ck off with both hands, let's go!"
    Thug: "That's weird man."
    Schmidt: "I think what he was trying to say was he's gonna punch you so many times around the genital area that your d*ck is just gonna fall off. Is that clear?"

    Ah, the first big bust for Jenko and Schmidt: A group of biker thugs hanging out in an area park...yay! Jenko's unfortunate choice of words, however, threatens to take things in a whole different direction. Luckily, Schmidt's there to explain.

    Miranda Rights

    Video: YouTube

    Deputy Chief Hardy: "You forgot to read him his Miranda rights. Do you even know the Miranda rights?"
    Jenko: "It obviously goes something like... you have the right to remain... an attorney."
    Deputy Chief Hardy: "Did you just say you have the right to be an attorney?"
    Schmidt: "You do have the right to be an attorney, if you want to..."

    If Deputy Chief Hardy looks familiar, he should: That's Nick Offerman, aka Ron Swanson from NBC's 'Parks and Recreation.' How could this movie NOT be hilarious with Offerman on board?
