Two strangers are drawn to a mysterious pharmaceutical trial that will, they’re assured, with no complications or side-effects whatsoever, solve all of their problems, permanently. Things do not go as planned.
This started out super weird and I wasn’t sure what was real or not. The world was not our own, they had tech we don’t, but it wasn’t magical. It was very odd. As the show progressed I no longer had that issue, even though, they were reality hopping. Things were still weird, but I knew what was happening.
I never warmed up to Jonah Hill’s character. He seemed very devoid of emotion and I had a hard time caring about him at all. Emma Stone, on the other hand, I loved. She wasn’t a very likable character, but I got her emotion and I enjoyed watching her.
I hesitate to say the show was entertaining. I don’t think I enjoyed hardly any of it, but it wasn’t bad. It just ended up not being my cup of tea.
After making their way through high school (twice), big changes are in store for officers Schmidt and Jenko when they go deep undercover at a local college.
That movie had no business being 112 minutes. Too long. I was barely holding on by the end. Also the jokes about it being a sequel got old fast. I knew they were coming, every review I read mentioned them, but holy cow.
A pair of underachieving cops are sent back to a local high school to blend in and bring down a synthetic drug ring.
Ok that humping scene was hilarious.
“You’re in too deep man.”
I’ve never understood why people would want to go back to high school. Just don’t get it. My high school years weren’t horrible, it’s not like I’m scarred for life over what happened there, but they weren’t awesome either. I have no desire to go back to that time, I have no regrets, nothing I would want to do over, so that part of the movie didn’t resonate with me.
Overall the movie was pretty funny. Loved the reveal at the end. This movie knew what it was and didn’t try to be anything more.
