21 Jump Street snuck up on me. It was so much better than I thought it would be. This one was bound to be a little bit of a letdown.
Still, I was hopeful. Amy and I went to go see it the night before our mom died. It was the first time in almost two weeks I had allowed myself to leave the hospice or ICU for a reason other than to eat, sleep, or run an errand. We saw a 10:30 pm showing in Rockville. We had a choice between eating dinner or going to see the movie. We chose the movie.
We enjoyed it. Definitely. In particular, I liked all the fake sequels bit at the end. Perhaps I just wasn't in the right head space to really enjoy it. Or maybe I should have eaten dinner. There were definitely many amusing moments and a couple times I laughed out loud. But it definitely didn't capture the magic of the first one for me.
