/Film’s Germain Lussier called 22 Jump Street (out in theaters this weekend) one of the funniest and best films of the summer. I saw 22 Jump Street this week and found it to be immensely enjoyable. Its knowing references to its bizarre sequel status were amusing, and I loved the gags in the last half of the film, when it felt like directors Chris Miller and Phil Lord felt free to let loose and really play with the film’s reality.
I spoke with Germain about why he loved the film so much and how 22 Jump Street avoids being a repetitive sequel in the vein of Hangover 2. Find our video review after the jump.
