Before there was technology and the intelligence we now know, cops had to act like students (AKA narcs) in school. They would pick younger-looking officers and dress them up in highschool gear, give them a name, a story, and an identity. That’s where 21 Jump Street jumps in. When Johah Hill and Channing Tatum were kids, they were always going to be life-long friends. Even if they didn’t know it yet. The two of them are now police officers and not great ones. So they are assigned to 21 Jump Street to find out where the infestation of narcotics have entered the scene. Let the story continue as you watch it.
