There’s some interesting stuff out today.

#1.)  “21 Jump Street”  (R)

Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum play cops who go undercover at a local high school to bust a drug ring.  It’s based on the ’80s TV show that started Johnny Depp’s career . . . and he DOES have a cameo.

Ice Cube plays their captain, who revives the old Jump Street unit, and James Franco’s younger brother Dave is the dealer.

#2.)  “Casa de Mi Padre”  (R)

This is Will Ferrell’s Spanish language movie with English subtitles . . . which translates to ‘House of My Father’.  It’s like a comedy, a Western, and movie-length parody of an over-dramatic Mexican soap opera, all in one.

Basically, he plays a Spanish rancher version of the character he ALWAYS plays, and gets on the wrong side of a drug lord.
