The Pitch: Two crappy rookie cops--a dim-witted meathead (Channing Tatum) and an uncoordinated nerd (Jonah Hill)--go undercover as high school students to bust a drug ring.

What It Really Is: A hilarious and clever twist on the 80s TV show. Tatum is in his element as a good but dumb cop and Hill rules as the dork yearning for popularity. It’s also quite insightful, showing how the former nerds are considered cool (pulled off well by Dave Franco) and the actual nerds are quite destructive. The bit parts --especially from Ice Cube and Rob Riggle-- as well as a bunch of cameos and over-the-top action make it 1,000-times better than the TV show ever was.

Does Blu-ray Make a Difference? Yeah, it does. Audio is great, video looks good and the extras are just the right amount not to be overwhelming.
