This is a comedy that is made by American producer Tom Mankiewicz and that was released on July 5, 2020. It is based on the popular television series Freaks and Geeks. The main cast of this movie includes Jim Carrey, Patricia Heaton, David Koechner, Adam Scott, Kristy Swanson, Wallace Shawn, Ty Burrell, and Marcia Gay Harden. This is not a drama, so it should not be taken seriously.
The story begins in late-2020, and there is a zombie outbreak taking place in the city of San Francisco. If you don't remember, the main characters are: Mason, a geek; Andrew, a hipster; and Andy, a nerd. The story takes place during the class reunion of their college days. It is in this movie that the true colors of the guys from Freaks and Geeks are revealed. One of the major points of this movie is the fact that Mason had a crush on Andrew, while all the other guys were full of sex, drugs, and rock-and-roll.
In a nutshell, Mason is the nerd who plays with electronics and hangs out with a group of his friends. Andrew is the hipster who is always joking around and is the oddball in the group. Andy is the nerdy guy who smoke pot, listens to rap music, and goes to a rave club every once in a while. And the guy with the hot girlfriend is actually Jim Carrey's character. It turns out that there was no love triangle, but the main thing is that the guys in the group were basically the same.
The main focus of the movie is that Jim Carrey is the eccentric, although quite handsome, character. The story is mostly centered on him. The show has already ended, so it is sort of like they had an extended cameo as a way to follow up the series. They go back to the university after several years of living in New York City, so the two worlds meet again.
The plot revolves around the guys and their new school, where they all get to spend a lot of time together. Even though they have lived different lives, they still get to enjoy the same things, which they were originally meant to do in high school. They also get to reconnect with old friends, who they are not so familiar with back then.
Overall, the movie is a fun comedy that should be watched by everyone. It is one of those funny movies that people should watch with their families. It has that kind of originality that should appeal to anyone that likes to laugh at themselves.
The one problem with this film is that it doesn't really tell its story properly. There are scenes that do not make sense, and the ending is just too bizarre. It is unfortunate that the filmmakers would go that far with the comedy, but then again, they had just spent two years filming a TV series, so it might have been justifiable to try to give a stand-alone film that could stand on its own.
Overall, this movie is a fun movie that has a lot of good jokes. It is worth checking out if you like comedies, but it will probably not be a great addition to your collection. If you are a fan of the series, though, then it should be perfect for you. Besides, there is no harm in a little fun.
