Particularly in its later years, the very best factor about Psych was that you just by no means knew what you have been in for.
It adopted a components, but it surely was a components that was typically stuffed with nonsense—made-up songs, tangents about numerous meals, random screeching, and so on and so on—and moments and character particulars that felt completely misplaced and utterly in place on the identical time.
Psych: The Film took the present’s delicate stability of goofy thriller and severe shenanigans and expanded it into one thing that felt precisely like Psych in film type. It was bizarre as hell and so many issues have been completely different, however psychphrancisco nonetheless felt proper. And now we desperately want extra.
We first caught up with Shawn (James Roday) in full (borrowed, from Gus) Hagrid apparel on the hunt for the engagement ring that was stolen within the final moments of the Psych collection finale. Three years later, he nonetheless hasn’t gotten it again, and he and Jules (Maggie Lawson) nonetheless aren’t married. He forgets to name her his fiancee, and even Chief Vick (Kirsten Nelson) is questioning whether or not Shules is definitely meant to be.
By the top of the evening, all of that was rectified. The ring was lastly discovered, Shawn was able to get married, and that is precisely what he and Jules did, proper there on the dock.
However earlier than they might head out on their honeymoon (with Gus (Dulé Hill) and his new woman in tow), Juliet’s brother Ewan (John Cena) arrived with a marriage current, adopted by what gave the impression to be a helicopter stuffed with guys with weapons.
Final we left Shawn, Gus, and Ewan, they have been formally on the run, and Shawn was positively going to wish no matter that wedding ceremony current was. If that is not a arrange for a second film, we do not know what’s. (Is it an excessive amount of to hope that this chase takes us again to Santa Barbara/the Vancouver model of Santa Barbara?)
After all, that is not all that went down tonight. Juliet discovered herself on the middle of all the pieces when her San Franciscan companion was murdered. The offender was a person calling himself the Duke, performed by Zachary Levi with an amazingly bonkers English accent and bleach blond hair. He apparently was once Juliet’s informant in a couple of circumstances the place she in some way minimize some corners to place some dangerous guys in jail.
However then we discovered that the actual offender was the a lot much less ridiculous Allison Crowley (Mena Suvari), AKA the protege of all people’s favourite deceased father/daughter serial killer duo, Mr. Yin and Mr. Yang. Juliet despatched her to jail again in season 5, which surprisingly, for some motive, made her offended sufficient to kidnap Chief Vick’s daughter and stash her at Alcatraz.
Fortunately, Juliet has been taking martial arts courses, Henry’s (Corbin Bernsen) acquired a hipster scarf that is nice for tripping assassins, Shawn and Gus are wonderful at operating away from ninjas, and Woody’s (Kurt Fuller, not Stephen Tobolowsky) good with a gun, so everybody made it out safely and we left feeling precisely like we all the time felt on the finish of an enormous Psych showdown.
Now, we will not go away with out discussing a few issues. To begin with, Gus appears to have discovered his match in Selené (Hill’s actual life fiancee Jazmyn Simon). She’s simply as large of an area nerd as he’s (even when she does not share his views on Pluto), and she or he makes one hell of a fluffernutter sandwich, however she positively did come on somewhat robust. We are going to 100% want one other film to get to know her somewhat extra and to be rather less petrified of her and her obsessive researching capabilities.
And second, that dream. Shawn’s prophetic “Allison Street” dream introduced us the return of Mary Calmly (Westworld‘s Jimmi Simpson) who could also be useless however is comfortable to indicate up in Shawn’s head/kitchen for a serenade. Missed ya, Mary.
Actually, we missed all of it, and we’re very comfortable to have it again.
