The other way to make a movie out of a TV show is to admit that the original was cheesy or updating it would be impossible, so you make a wacky, preferably filthy comedy doused in enough irony to make John Waters smirk. The movie based on 21 Jump Street takes this tact, and – what a relief – it works. Okay, it more than works. It’s really, really funny – as long as you ignore the homophobia.
