Our review:
Parents say (1 ):
Kids say (1 ):

Psych fans have reason to celebrate this movie sequel. Everything they came to love about the series is back in this reunion-style movie -- the whip-smart humor, the exceptional writing, the balancing act between clever comedy and corny laughs -- and the cast picks up right where they left off. Shawn's psychic scam is less of a focus in this story than before, but his skill with perception and attention to detail continues to prove an asset to the gumshoe team.

With both Shawn and Gus romantically attached at this stage of their lives, the focus shifts from the pursuit of love to the maintenance of their respective relationships. For much of this story, that necessitates deceiving their partners about their whereabouts and their involvement on Lassiter's case. Psych 2 is a must-see for fans of the show and proves that the passage of time can do little to diminish the appeal of truly excellent characters and exceptional writing.
