Years after walking away from her past as a teenage private eye, Veronica Mars gets pulled back to her hometown - just in time for her high school reunion - in order to help her old flame Logan Echolls, who's embroiled in a murder mystery.
Former teenage private eye and now an aspiring New York City lawyer, Veronica Mars gets one phone call from ex-boyfriend Logan Echolls and she gets pulled right back into the seedy underbelly of Neptune, California. Logan's pop star girlfriend, Bonnie DeVille, has been murdered and he needs Veronica's help to clear his name. DeVille is a fellow Neptune High alum, and her murder and Veronica's return to Neptune coincide with their 10-year high school reunion. Veronica is face to face with old friends and foes alike and finds it's much harder to leave home a second time. Written by
When she meets Mrs. Barnes (Ruby Jetson's landlady), Veronica Mars introduces herself as "Pam Martin" - a reference to actress Pamela Sue Martin who played Nancy Drew in The Hardy Boys/Nancy Drew Mysteries (1977) TV series. (Throughout the original Veronica Mars (2004) series, Veronica Mars occasionally referred to herself as "Nancy Drew," after the famous girl detective.) See more »
The top row of ribbons on Logan's uniform contains a Navy/Marine Corps Achievement Medal followed by an Air Medal. The Air Medal is the higher ranking decoration so it should come first. See more »
Give it to me, Vinnie. Or I'll tell 50 Cent's security team where they can find the guy who posted video of Fifty baking lemon cakes while singing "Afternoon delight".

The very end of the closing credits include a thank you to the fans and backers:
"This movie would never have been possible without the endless faith and support of our fans around the world, and especially the 91,585 backers who pledged on Kickstarter to bring Veronica back to life. Thank you for never giving up, and for helping us do the impossible." See more »
I grew up with all 3 seasons. However, while seasons 1 & 2 were brilliant, season 3 sucked to high heaven. The movie is definitely just for those that really missed the characters and just needed a fresh 107 minutes of Veronica.
The story offered isn't exactly water tight, but if you're a true Veronica Mars fan you will overlook the odd logical glitch in the story.
One thing that gave me a pleasant surprise was that it's still jaw-dropping amazing to look at Kristen Bell. Her cute and sexy voice/smile/attitude just makes you forget about some of the truly crappy storytelling in the movie.
That the movie has a rating of 7,8 (03/20/2014) doesn't surprise me. This is just purely a hardcore fan rating.
Bottom line: Veronica Mars fans will get what they deserve.
