For many large companies, the office Christmas party are nights that can rapidly descend into mayhem. Free flowing liquor, music, Santa hats and the thought of the Winter Holiday period off work are enough motivation to drive even the most straight of employees to unwind.
Clay Vanstone is part of the family business, out of all their branches, his in the one that's failing and Clay is hardly a usually businessman. His sister, Carol is firm on the idea of closing down his branch but Clay is steadfast in saving the business.
As the holidays approach, Clay comes up with the great idea of combining the office party with a boozy meeting with some new clients, who, if they win their business would be enough to save their fun-loving branch.

Mixing the action, comedy and horror from novelist R.L. Stein's books into a family-friendly package, this lively romp is entertaining enough to amuse the audience even when it veers off the rails. It helps that Jack Black is on board, giving one of his more energetically charged performances, and that the script peppers scenes with smart gags. But an over-reliance on big special effects weakens the movie's big climax, and the breathless pace is sometimes exhausting.
Black plays Stein himself, a reclusive author and over-protective father who lives in a small town with his daughter Hannah (Odeya Rush). Then single mother Gale (Amy Ryan) moves in next door with her teen son Zach (Dylan Minette), who is immediately intrigued by Hannah. Despite Stein's warnings, Zach and his new school friend Champ (Ryan Lee) sneak into the house to find out more, opening one of the novelist's manuscripts in the process. Out pops an abominable snowman, who proceeds to wreak havoc in the town. And the next literary escapee, the sadistic ventriloquist's dummy Slappy, is even worse. He sets about releasing all of Stein's fictional monsters into the real world, unleashing chaos on a massive scale. But Zach has an idea that may stop the mayhem.
Screenwriter Darren Lemke and director Rob Letterman have a great time bringing the maximum level of pandemonium to this small town, with a range of outrageous creatures that are both comical and scary. These are rendered in rather obvious digital animation, including a gang of militarised garden gnomes, a slimy blob, zombies, werewolves and a gigantic praying mantis. But the cartoonish sheen is undercut intriguingly by some genuinely tense moments, mainly because Slappy is properly menacing. Black provides Slappy's gleefully sinister voice while hamming it up on-screen as Stein. Minette and Rush are fine as the usual bland youthful heroes with a cute hint of romance between them. And more textured acting is provided in small roles by Ryan, Jillian Bell (as Gale's airhead sister) and Ken Marino (as a lovelorn colleague).

After a pretty traumatic time returning to high school to uncover the source of a popular new drug, young cops Schmidt and Jenko are being forced to go undercover yet again. This time their special division has been moved from 21 to 22 Jump Street and they are re-experiencing college life. Sound fun? Well, not when you haven't got a clue what is going through kids' minds these days and with a new narcotic going around called Whyphy (that sounds a lot like WiFi), they've got an exceptionally tricky situation on their hands. Spring Break might mean time off for the students, but for Schmidt and Jenko it's the perfect opportunity to find the suppliers. First though, they need a little help from an old perp, who's currently serving time in jail after their previous drug bust.

Schmidt and Jenko are two young cops who thought they'd seen the last of student culture after successfully arresting the supplier behind a high school narcotic in special division 21 Jump Street. However, given that they did such a good job at acting ten years younger, they've been enlisted to return to college to get to the bottom of a new drug that is going around high school graduates called Whyphy. This time they've been moved to 22 Jump Street, and the kids they have to deal with are much smarter - and way more dangerous. When Spring Break comes around, it feels like a perfect opportunity to nab the new suppliers but in order to do so, they need a little help. After visiting an old perp in jail, they begin to weave their way through the social circles of college - but that's easier said than done when their own relationship is struggling.

Having successfully managed to nab the suppliers behind a new high school narcotic during their first stint in special division 21 Jump Street, young police officers Schmidt and Jenko are forced to return to college after moving to 22 Jump Street in order to bag the culprits behind another drug surge. There, it's a blur of debauchery, partying and drinking games as they wheedle their way into the different social circles in a bid to find the source of the new substance - even re-visiting some old perps in jail for information. However, their own professional partnership is compromised when they get mixed up in different college scenes and they have to decide if working together is right for them both in the long run.
