John Calipari knows he isn’t a movie critic but when he was asked on Saturday to give an opinion on a movie he saw with his team on Thursday, he gave his honest opinion: it was “awful.”

The culprit the evidently stunk up the movie theater? “21 Jump Street,” the Jonah Hill-Channing Tatum big screen comedy adaptation of the late 80′s, early 90′s network TV show. While his players enjoyed the flick, Calipari didn’t find himself very amused. He blames the generation gap. Understandable. There might have been an F-bomb or a few dozen.

From The New York Times:

“There were some of the stupidest things in this movie I’ve ever seen,” he said. [...]

Calipari sought to clarify that he was considerably older than the movie’s target audience. “I should say it was awful if you’re 53,” as Calipari is at the moment. “If you’re 19, 20, 21, it was a fun movie. But people were laughing. I was the only one not laughing.”

Fine, Calipari, but don’t expect Korean Jesus to give you any help in the Final Four this weekend.
