Are you a fan of the TV show?

Then see this movie. It was pitch-perfect. They had just enough references to the original show without trying to redo it exactly. The casting was amazing and while there was more action than there would have been in the original show, it felt like the kind of action they would have done had they wanted to do an action scene. In fact, that was the best part of the movie: everything they did felt like it is how it would have happened in the original show. The way they handled problems, the way the characters interacted, the setups for jokes, the way those jokes played out were all the way they should have been. And yet they managed to keep it from seeming like they were trying to be the original characters.

I've rarely been so pleasantly surprised by a movie.
Hell, I'm hoping for a sequel.
