Our Take

7.4
The Staff

Jim Carrey stars in this unusual show dubbed a “tragicomedy”. He plays Mr. Jeff Pickles, the host of a beloved children’s show who has a do-gooder way of looking at life. 

In contrast to his job cheering up kids and giving lessons in what’s good or bad, he has to deal with a dark reality: the passing of his son. His wife left him as a consequence and he lives alone and away from his family. 

Kidding is about the contradictions that a life in show business brings and about what it takes for an optimistic person like Jeff to break. Produced and directed by Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind director, Michel Gondry.
