★★★1/2

The beloved television series receives a big screen documentary treatment in this star-studded and informative look at one of the most influential television series in modern history.

Cancelled by NBC brass after just 12 episodes aired in 2000, “Freaks & Geeks” helped launch the careers of names like James Franco, Seth Rogen, Linda Cardellini, Judd Apatow and more.

Fans will love this short but sweet glimpse into how the show came together, how it was misunderstood from the beginning, and has persevered as a cult classic for nearly two decades.

Starring: James Franco, Seth Rogen, Linda Cardellini, Paul Feig, Judd Apatow, Jason Segel, Busy Philipps.
DIrector: Brian Hodge
Running Time: 71 Minutes
