21 Jump Street Trailer

I enjoyed the TV show as a kid, but it has been so long that I don’t remember much. After watching this video, I know for certain that the only thing borrowed from the tv show is the title, as the early 80’s show was a serious drama, and this is all comedy. So the big question is: why bother? Why name this movie after a popular TV show if you are going to deviate so far from it that they are incomparable? It’s stupid and it irritates me. Are you saying that we would only be interested in this movie because of its ties to the TV show? If I were Johnny Depp or Richard Grieco (oh I went there!), I would be pissed.

Anyhoo, the movie does look funny, even if I am openly irritated by its name…
