21 Jump Street has officially triumphed and in the process, given us some stellar movie quotes. The film stars Jonah Hill as Schmidt and Channing Tatum as Jenko and shot to the top of the box office in its first week of release, earning over $35 million. The 1980s undercover detective show that made Johnny Depp famous jumped to the big screen as an R-rated comedy. And what comedies do better than any genre of film... give us unforgettable lines.
The movie also features Rob Riggle as a teacher, Mr. Walters, Ellie Kemper as another educator Ms. Griggs (one who finds it hard to resist Tatum’s good looks), Ice Cube as Captain Dickson and Nick Offerman as Deputy Chief Harvey. In honor of the film’s box office victory, we present our very best 21 Jump Street quotes.
