Storyline

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 Anne Campbell

Trivia

When describing how much she's changed in the past ten years, Veronica says "people say I'm a marshmallow". 'Marshmallows' is what fans of Veronica Mars call themselves and are called by the media. See more »

Goofs

Logan is seen wearing U.S. Navy dress whites which is not a liberty uniform worn by the US Navy, nor worn just to pick up someone at the airport. Not to mention wearing a non-U.S. Navy high pressure cap. When he is leaving at the end of the movie, he is wearing what is suppose to be summer whites. Again he's wearing the wrong cap, no shoulder boards, his designator doesn't exist, and his belt tab should not be pulled passed his buckle. The tab should only be sticking out of the buckle. Had he worn the correct US Navy hat, he would have been insulting the military. The costume designer should have consulted with a military adviser if trying to represent the US armed forces in the movie. See more »

Quotes

4 / 10 for those that don't know the series...
20 March 2014 | by See all my reviews

... but 9 / 10 for the fans that love the series.

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.
