In this big-screen version of the 1980s TV show, rookie cops Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum are picked for their youthful looks to return to high-school and infiltrate a drugs ring.

Once there, they find that teenagers of the Obamacare generation are not what they used to be. The gags keep the film rolling along, but let's make no bones about it: Tatum has no discernible comedy chops, so it's as well that Hill has enough for the both of them.
