It’s not long before everyone learns that Juliet is the true target. The killer wants “The Crimes of Juliet O’Hara” exposed to the world. While everyone tells Juliet she is a top cop, she is keeping a secret that has her second-guessing herself. And only one person can bring her back to stop the monster she created. But how far will this monster go and who will the monster choose next? You must wait to find out.
Full Disclosure: This reviewer is a hardcore Psych-O. So this movie must be good to hold the standards that fans are used to seeing on the TV show. Don’t worry, it does that and more!!! Your favorites will be there, even some you don’t suspect and a few you may have forgotten. It comes with your favorite catchphrases, a new Gus nickname, hard-hitting guest appearances, closure on the last season, and a little room for a sequel. Your mind will be completely blown, you will laugh out loud, and get teary-eyed every step of the way. It is all worth it. The last 30 minutes are some of the best writing ever for this program. While you can watch this movie without being a fan, some jokes and references will go over your head. So non-fans should watch the movie and go back to watch Psych, the TV show. And for fans, well, fellow Psych-Os, don’t forget to read the Psych books (FTC Affiliate Disclaimer). Watch this and don’t let anyone tell you anything. The smallest spoiler will ruin everything.
