We’re finally out of the post-winter doldrums and in the midst of the buildup to the summer movie season, and I must admit I’m pretty psyched. With any luck we have a handful of high-quality event movies to look forward to (on that note, check back next time for a look at “The Hunger Games”), and perhaps some of the “lesser” titles will provide some pleasant surprises. Take this week’s pick, which I was initially not even going to see until early reviews swayed my opinion just enough to give it a shot. Turns out it’s the best time I’ve had at the movies so far this year, and easily the most flat-out funny flick I’ve seen since last year’s “Horrible Bosses.” Go figure, huh?

I’ve been writing this column for a long time, and sometimes I wonder how I’ve survived without completely losing my passion for film. So many bad movies, so many crushing disappointments, so much dwelling on the negative — how’s a guy supposed to keep the faith week in and week out? The answer, strange as it may seem: movie’s like “21 Jump Street.”
