Red Band Trailer: 21 Jump Street

Official plot synopsis from Slashfilm:

In the action-comedy 21 Jump Street, Schmidt (Skinny Jonah Hill) and Jenko (Channing Tatum) are more than ready to leave their adolescent problems behind. Joining the police force and the secret Jump Street unit, they use their youthful appearances to go undercover in a local high school. As they trade in their guns and badges for backpacks, Schmidt and Jenko risk their lives to investigate a violent and dangerous drug ring. But they find that high school is nothing like they left it just a few years earlier – and neither expects that they will have to confront the terror and anxiety of being a teenager again and all the issues they thought they had left behind.

This has the faint whiff of Starsky & Hutch. That’s not a good thing. It also makes me wonder how the show ever got on the air in the first place with such a ridiculous premise. Out March 16, 2012.
