I never watched the show, although I heard it was really good. Would someone unfamiliar with the characters be lost trying to watch the movie?

I saw Booksmart yesterday

Solid movie, strong performances by the leads, with a few absolutely hysterical moments.

Billie Lourd stole the show.

Inferior to Superbad (with which it is getting a lot of comparisons)

The movie is a kind of closure for fans of an amazing show that was abruptly canceled after its third season in 2006 and, IMO, a somewhat sentimental send-off to an amazing cast. I would hesitate to recommend it to people who aren't Deadwood fans. If you have HBO, "Here Was A Man" (Season 1, Episode 4) is a good intro to the show.
