Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum’s mismatched cop buddies are back for a sequel and it’s everything you would expect.
This time round, they are undercover at college to find the source of a lethal new drug.
Once again the self-referential, self-mocking gags fly thicker and faster than the bullets; once again it’s Hill’s podgy nerd rather than Tatum’s hunky jock who gets the girl and once again the story barely hangs together.
Flimsy stuff, for sure, but the stars’ easygoing chemistry and sharp comic timing keep the laughs coming, as does Ice Cube as their sour-faced superior.
Be certain to stay for the breezy end credits, which run through a string of hilariously silly potential future sequels for the pair.
