21 Jump Street – This Ain’t No Summer Camp

The official profanity-filled trailer for the movie 21 Jump Street was released today, but if it wasn’t called 21 Jump Street the last thing it would make you think of is the late ’80s, early ’90s Fox show that launched the career of Johnny Depp.

The movie, which is due out in March 2012, stars Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill as flub-up cops who go undercover at a high school just like in the TV show but the trailer resembles more of a reboot of Police Academy than it does the TV show that once included an episode where two of the jump streeters went undercover at a camp for delinquent children to see if one of the leaders at the camp was being too hard on the campers.

The episode title doesn’t lie; it definitely isn’t summer camp.

Do you remember 21 Jump Street?
