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!

    Not So Slim Shady

    Jenko: "Not So Slim Shady, what's up? I haven't seen you since high school..."

    Ah, high school: Chances are, Jenko's memories of those days are much more pleasant than nerdy Schmidt, who tried really hard to rock the Eminem/Slim Shady look back in the day.

    Schmidt: "When did I get stabbed?! That's awesome!"

    Schmidt and Jenko break another rule: the one about giving alcohol to minors. At a wild party, Schmidt gets stabbed - and, in his effed up state, he thinks it's hilarious! Yep, these two fit in perfectly well as idiotic high school students.

    Chests and Tests

    Ms. Griggs (to Jenko): "Let me check out your chest -- Let me check out your test."

    One of the big rules Captain Dickson lays out for Jenko and Schmidt: Don't sleep with students OR teachers. Teacher Ms. Griggs (the hilarious Ellie Kemper) might make it hard for Jenko to stick to the rules...

    Mr. Waters: "You have exceptional muscle tone, young man. When did you go through puberty? Like at seven or something?"

    Mr. Waters is right to question Jenko's "exceptional muscle tone" - the guy looks like he's 30 years old, at least. And it's Channing Tatum, who's abs rival those of Taylor Lautner. Or anyone.
