Best: The most romantic bromance ever
It doesn't take a psychoanalyst to spot the homoerotic subtext all over "22 Jump Street" -- hell, by the time Jenko and Schmidt are having couples counselling and "investigating other people" (not to mention the connotations of Jenko and burly new bestie Zook's behind-closed-doors grunting), I'm not sure you can really call it subtext anymore. In the first film, the implication was that a very fine line separates profound male friendship from romance; here, Lord and Miller effectively proceed as if no such line exists, building an all-male love triangle that you can choose to read any way you wish -- and does so without any macho posturing or snarky snickering. Our heroes' bond is celebrated rather than mocked: "That's who he should be with," Zook observes later on as the duo reunite, and who would disagree?
