Success! Many folks out there were a little nervous about the sequel to 21 Jump Street, since it seemed impossible to replicate the blooming bromance and hilarity of the first film. But it has been achieved, you guys. Victory is ours!

22 Jump Street hit the theatres today (June 13), and the reviews are pouring it — it's a goody. The sequel currently holds a rating of 85 per cent on Rotten Tomatoes, which is the same rating as its predecessor. In this film, we see the epic return of Schmidt (Jonah Hill) and Jenko (Channing Tatum), this time undercover as college students looking for a supplier of another dangerous drug. Sounds pretty good, eh?

If the guaranteed laughs are not reason enough for you to pay for that cinema ticket, then we have a few more incentives to get you into that movie theatre seat. You can thank us later.

1. The reviews, B-words!

Do not underestimate the power of great reviews. Mediocre comedies don't climb high in ratings on Rotten Tomatoes, which means this film brought it. Which is why we should go hand in hand and watch it.

2. Ice Cube talking bada**

Seriously, if for nothing else, watch it for Ice Cube. Nobody is as cool (get it? Ice Cube?) and intimidating as this guy. Come on, have you seen Boyz n the Hood?

3. Spring break, motherflippers

We Canadians may not be all that familiar with the concept of Spring break, since our spring is buried under 57 feet of snow, but we hear it's a big deal. We obviously want to see Hill and Tatum hit the beach undercover, trying to hunt down a drug dealer.

4. And then some more Spring break

5. Jonah Hill punching a woman

Obviously this is not very gentlemanly or legal, but Jonah Hill strikes us as a very polite and well-mannered man, which is why — in a comedic setting — this is hilarious. We'd watch the movie just for this fight.

6. The hilarity (and cameos), obviously

The biggest motivator for anyone to watch 22 Jump Street is to just sit back and enjoy the hilarity. It will make you laugh — we can bet on it. Plus, do you have any idea how many cameos are in this movie? There's Seth Rogen, Anna Faris, Queen Latifah and even Brad Pitt.

Will you be watching this film, or is it a pass? Did you like the first one?
