Watched this one for the first time the other night, have to say it was a lot better than I thought it was going to be.
Usually movies adapted from Television shows don't turn out so well, especially when they're comedies. With this one, they certainly seemed to get a lot of things right.
The premise was pretty stupid, but the movie just worked. You have to give the writers credit. Taking a stereotypical plot from the 80's and adapting it into a full blown movie that doesn't come off stupid, doesn't drag and is pretty damn entertaining.
The comedy was decent, great mix of situational comedy, gags, one liners all mixed with some decent action sequences. Let's face it, Channing Tatum doesn't exactly have the best track record when it comes to movies...but comedy?! I was pleasantly surprised. Jonah Hill also had some great timing and chemistry with Tatum which is what made the movie work so well. The addition of Ice Cube was excellent and he clearly stole every scene he was in. Also, some great little cameos sprinkled throughout to keep momentum going.
The blu ray was excellent, no complaints at all.
Overall, a surprisingly decent comedy that is probably one of the funniest movies I've seen released in the past couple of years. Definitely need to watch this one again!!!
