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
Almost since Veronica Mars (2004) went off the air, there's been talk of making a movie. Rob Thomas even developed a pitch that revolved around graduation day at Hearst college: Wallace and Mac were graduating, Veronica had been sidetracked by freeing Keith from prison and there was a murder in Neptune that was affecting the beach city's spring break business. Warner Bros. wasn't convinced there was enough interest to warrant a major studio-sized movie about Veronica and the project never got off the ground. See more »
At the reunion, Veronica holds a lighter under a smoke detector to start the sprinkler system. The unit shown is a typical household smoke detector that would not trigger a commercial sprinkler system. 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 was quite upset and disappointed when the series was canceled back in 2004. It was one of my favorite shows, and I fervently believed (and still fervently believe) that it was canceled well before it should have been. When I heard that a movie was being made, I immediately became one of its many Kickstarter backers. Now, the movie is a reality, and I am happy to say that Rob and his cast and crew did not disappoint. The movie embodies everything that made the series as great as it was. Wit, sarcasm and noir story-lines abound, giving this the feel of a Veronica Mars season finale episode (without a cliffhanger). The reason I say that it is bittersweet, is because the movie is a reminder of what should have been, and, while watching the movie, I could not help but feel those pangs of sadness that I felt when the series was canceled. This was ameliorated, however, by the satisfaction I felt with the final product. It is my sincere hope that this could be the genesis of a new age for Veronica Mars resulting in more movies, or even another run of the series.
