Comedy sequel "22 Jump Street" lands on Friday, and as you'll know from our review, it's maybe the best movie of the summer so far, and certainly the funniest. But if you're someone who really hates jokes and laughing, there's some good news for you, because when the film hits DVD & Blu-ray at the end of the year, there'll be an alternate cut of the film without any gags in it.

22 Jump Street

Comedy sequel "22 Jump Street" lands on Friday, and as you'll know from our review, it's maybe the best movie of the summer so far, and certainly the funniest. But if you're someone who really hates jokes and laughing, there's some good news for you, because when the film hits DVD & Blu-ray at the end of the year, there'll be an alternate cut of the film without any gags in it.

Collider talked to directors/comedy alchemists Phil Lord and Chris Miller ahead of the film's release, and Lord revealed that "as an experiment, we said 'what if we took out anything that was supposed to be a joke, and see how much movie is left.” And have it be just story." Miller adds "It was 10 minutes long. It's a weird conceptual piece." It sounds pretty fun, and a fair reflection of the insanity of the film, for better or for worse.

That's not all that'll be on the DVD, though, with as much as 45 minutes having been cut from the film. Lord explains "There was some stuff that was story things that didn’t have a lot to do with Channing and Jonah. What we learned in testing was anytime those guys were apart, all anyone wanted to see was them back together. That dominated the movie. There are some really beautiful scenes with other characters that are going to be on the DVD and Blu." Given the density of the supporting cast in the film, this'll certainly be one of our most anticipated home video releases of the year. In the meantime, "22 Jump Street" hits theaters on Friday, and you can take a look at some of the deleted scenes from the first "21 Jump Street" below.
