Here are the best movies of 2014 so far! (Note: These movies have all been released in theaters and I am not including movies that I saw at film festivals that have not been yet released to the public.)
22 Jump Street
Everyone expected '22 Jump Street' and 'How to Train Your Dragon 2' to open well, but you won't find many people who expected the raunchy R-rated comedy to open bigger than the family friendly animated adventure. But here we are! Both films opened well, but '22 Jump Street,' like the first film, is has taken a hammer to all expectations.
Jonah Hill probably shouldn't have made that bet.
Back when '21 Jump Street' was about to hit theaters, a drunk Hill made a ridiculous bet with an equally drunk Channing Tatum based on the possibility that their movie open over $35 million. The bet? As Hill put it, "I will kiss your tip!" (The tip of what, we'll leave to your very capable imagination.) '21 Jump Street' opened to $36.3 million.
Everyone loves Phil Lord and Chris Miller. The writing-directing team behind 'The LEGO Movie' and this Friday's '22 Jump Street' have directed movies both critically beloved and commercially successful (the former is the highest-rated movie of the year on Rotten Tomatoes and the second-biggest movie of the year in terms of the box office). It's easy to understand why: like their films, these guys are smart, funny and lacking in any kind of cynicism.
Jonah Hill might want to work on his betting skills because he doesn't appear to understand the mechanics of it. The '22 Jump Street' star hit 'Conan' last night, alongside the other half of the burgeoning franchise's all-star comedic duo, Channing Tatum, to share some very weird (and very x-rated) tidbits about a bet the pair made quite awhile ago.
Jonah Hill (‘Evan Almighty’) and Channing Tatum (‘G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra’) are back as Schmidt and Jenko in the sequel to '21 Jump Street,' titled '22 Jump Street.' Is '22 Jump Street' as funny as the first movie? As a service to you – yes, you – we answer every question that you could possibly have about '22 Jump Street.'
Guillermo may be Jimmy Kimmel's "security guard" and "driver" and "friend," but he also has some big dreams, like usurping the late-night throne from his own boss and host of 'Jimmy Kimmel Live.' If that involves stealing his jokes, so be it. If that means just taking over the late-night show's air time, fine. If he needs to text high-profile guests to get them on the show, consider it done.
