Heartily raunchy and rather sweet, this remake of the old Fox TV show, which starred a young Johnny Depp, actually brings the laughs. Real ones. In it, odd couple cops, Schmidt (Jonah Hill) and Jenko (Channing Tatum), go undercover as high school students to bring down a drug ring. But high school’s changed since the duo’s teenage days, and they struggle to relate to the modern cliques. The directors don’t try too much, and the script is clever and funny. Worth the ride.

Blake Shelton

Blake Shelton insists he is just a regular, redneck guy. “I like to shoot deer. … I love to go hunting!” Shelton announced to his packed audience. It’s easy to buy the redneck part, but if you want to believe he’s “regular,” you’ll have to ignore the fact that he performed “America the Beautiful” with his wife, Miranda Lambert, at the Super Bowl this year. Also disregard his weekly appearance as one of the coaches of NBC’s hit show The Voice, and please pay no attention to the fact that he sang at the Grammys as well.
