For once, 22 Jump Street seems to have done the R-rated comedy sequel right. Not only is the movie doing great in reviews – currently it has 86% on Rotten Tomatoes – it’s also heading for a strong opening weekend.

According to Deadline, both Jump Streetand the other wide release this weekend – How to Train Your Dragon 2 – are expected to top $50 million over the three day period, so it should be a tight race for the top spot.

Ahead of the big weekend, everyone loves Jump Street. Well, reviewers do at least. The NY Times' Manohla Dargis sums up the movie’s quick, joke-heavy story: “More is more and is, at times, just right in “22 Jump Street,” an exploding piñata of gags, pratfalls, winking asides, throwaway one-liners and self-reflexive waggery.”

So, it’s kind of like 21 Jump Street, only better, apparently. The thing that sets this one apart from the original, is how very meta the story is. So if you love self-aware, self-referential humor, well, there’s plenty of that. Per Entertainment Weekly’s Chris Nashawati: “To cover up the script's lack of originality, screenwriters Michael Bacall, Oren Uziel, and Rodney Rothman pummel us with a string of self-aware meta-commentary jokes that poke fun at bloated sequels.”
