What is it that’s so magical about the combination of Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum together? There’s something about their chemistry that is just so undeniable. What is it? Their difference in size and stature? Is it Tatum’s unrelenting physical abilities compared to Hill’s, well, less-than-that? Is it that winning perma-upbeat attitude that Channing slings about his shoulders compared to the gloom and doom of Jonah? Or is it some wonderful combination of all of the above, couched with jokes and humor aplenty that makes them so damn enigmatic on screen? Personally, we have no idea, but we don’t hate it — quite the opposite, in fact.
Perhaps that’s why we find these 22 Jump Street outtakes (don’t worry, they’ll be on the Blu-ray release), so charming — even with all those safe for work-ensuring bleeps. And hey, even if you find the opposite sort of love of these two to be true in your own heart, worry not: there’s plenty of tasering and Jonah Hill being metaphorically shit on so that’ll be a treat for all the rest of you out there, we’re sure.

22 Jump Street hits digital platforms on October 28, with a Blu-ray and DVD release slated for November 18, so you’ll know exactly what to pick up your grandma for the holidays… if your grandma is into very self-aware, self-referential, and self-effacing humor films filled with guns and college stuff and drugs.
Which trip would you rather be one: Channing’s or Jonah’s? Let us know in the comments.
