Things are always worse the second time around, the deputy police chief warns the buddy-cop team of Jenko and Schmidt in "22 Jump Street"."22 Jump Street," starring the inspired comic duo of Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum, is a sequel, and movie sequels are indeed often worse (especially when, as the chief also points out, the budget's bigger the second time around).Self-referential jokes aside, things aren't worse the second time around for Hill, Tatum and directors Phil Lord and Christopher Miller. It's fine to make fun of sequels -- and this movie does, all the way to a fabulous ending-credits bit that steals the film -- when you know you've made a pretty darned good one yourself.The last film saw Jenko (Tatum) and Schmidt (Hill) go undercover to high school.The two bond so well that Jenko and Schmidt have a sort of buddy-cop breakup.
