Storyline

Jeff, aka Mr. Pickles, is an icon of children's television, a beacon of kindness and wisdom to America's impressionable young minds and the parents who grew up with him - who also anchors a multimillion-dollar branding empire. But when this beloved personality's family - wife, two sons, sister and father - begins to implode, Jeff finds no fairy tale or fable or puppet will guide him through the crisis, which advances faster than his means to cope. The result: a kind man in a cruel world faces a slow leak of sanity as hilarious as it is heartbreaking. Written by Showtime

Jim Carrey
16 September 2018 | by KirpianuscusSee all my reviews

After decades , he deserves the role of Jeff. As the summary of a career. And as proof of his skills , out of ordinaries categories, from drama to easy comedy. The serie has the virtue of an admirable director, great actors, a dark plot , using the humor as precise tool for describe a world in which to save the appearences is more important than to be yourself. The film reminds the force of Jim Carreys talent. And it does it in splendid manner. Short, a man, under pressure, in show world. And his answers to a profound grief. All using the shadows more than the performances itself, using appearences in a too familiar manner for many lives of public . So, Jim Carrey. And his great partners.
