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

The original idea for the film was written by Rob Thomas and Jennifer Graham, but was scrapped when Thomas finally began writing the script, when he realized that he'd need to tell a different story first: one that brought the characters back together after years apart. The story was later released as a novel called "The Thousand Dollar Tan Line". See more »

Goofs

Logan's uniform hat has a crest that consists of a silver eagle surrounded by a gold wreath. This is not the crest featured on U.S. Navy officers' uniforms. See more »

Quotes

Wallace Fennel: In case it slipped your mind, Piz is the one without the baggage and the drama.
Cindy 'Mac' Mackenzie: Hmm... I will say this for him, he almost never gets charged with murder.
Veronica Mars: Just one of the things I love about Piz. No drama.

Crazy Credits

Towards the end of the closing credits, we hear one of Logan's voice mail recordings:

"[phone ringing] This is Logan reminding you: if you're offered a seat on a rocket ship, don't ask which seat, just get on. Sheryl Sandberg said that. So don't leave a message. Go get on that rocket ship. Or, leave a message. Your call. Your decision will tell me a lot about you." See more »

It was worth the wait!
13 March 2014 | by (Cincinnati, OH) – See all my reviews

This is one of the most satisfying movies I have ever seen! Then again, I am a bit biased since I helped back the movie on Kickstarter.

I was a huge fan of the show when it was on the air and was ecstatic to hear about the movie. It's been almost a year and we finally have it! It was well worth the wait and the contribution to the Kickstarter campaign.

For the first few minutes of the movie, there is a slight recap of the TV show featuring clips with a voice over by Veronica Mars. This is used not only as an introductory piece for new watchers but also a walk down memory lane for the fans.

As expected, there were plenty of "inside jokes" that were casually thrown out in dialog. What was brilliant, though, was the fact that they weren't obvious. They blended with normal conversation and were just added bonuses for the fans and for new watchers it was just another example of how great the dialog was. You don't need any background information about the show to watch this, you won't be left in the dark with the inside jokes.

The movie is self-contained but leaves space for a sequel in one form or another. Characters grow and change during the movie, so it's not just a movie to have a movie.

Characters from the show are brought back but not in a pushy sort of way. It is a large cast but everyone has a proper place. You don't have anybody from the show return for a only second, everyone gets good face time without it being overwhelmed.

Overall, I highly recommend this move to anyone.
