The Plot: Two rookie police officers are shipped off to the undercover “Jump Street” division where they are forced to back to high school in an attempt to stop violent drug ring.

The Final Word: Based on the Johnny Depp headlined TV series, the movie couldn’t have come out at a better time for lead actor Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill. With Tatum coming off the highly-successful “The Vow” and Hill coming off his Oscar nomination for “Moneyball,” both are firmly in the public’s eye. This will also be the first of two straight weeks where one tentpole have the entire opening weekend to themselves.
