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

In one of the shots, a man dressed like a gorilla was needed to dance in the foreground while Kristen Bell and Ken Marino played a scene on a bench. Ryan Hansen had just wrapped his last scene in the film a few hours earlier and was hanging out on set and agreed to do the scene. Rob Thomas and Ryan then decided to prank Kristen and Ken, who didn't know it was Ryan in the gorilla suit. The stint will most likely make the DVD bloopers reel. See more »

Goofs

Piz's microphone says "WBEZ 91.5," and Piz is working with Ira Glass on This American Life. WBEZ is Chicago's NPR Station, and This American Life is a Chicago-base broadcast, but the studio where Piz is working is in New York. See more »

Quotes

Dick Casablancas: [opens the door, belches loudly, and sees Veronica] What's this? Wait a minute. No. I specifically told the agency "an eager-to-please brunette." Why is that so hard?
Veronica Mars: Dick.
Dick Casablancas: Ah, just kidding, Ronnie. Long time.
[turns his head]
Dick Casablancas: Hey, Logan! That girl who follows you around is here!
[to Veronica]
Dick Casablancas: Hey, you get some work done? Your boobs look bigger.
Veronica Mars: So do yours.

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 »

Feels like watching new episodes of the show!
15 March 2014 | by (Maine) – See all my reviews

Very well done! This is the most unabashed Fan-Service film I've seen since Serenity...and I daresay, it caters to its fans even more than Serenity did.

In fact, my biggest complaint about this movie is that it might cater too much to fans, leaving newcomers in the dark. The movie re- introduces you to Veronica, but virtually everyone else gets no exposition and no character development (beyond what you'd see in a typical episode, that is).

For fans of the show, this movie is a gift. You basically get a new episode of the TV show here- a bottle episode that's roughly 100 minutes long.

There were a few differences- namely, I didn't remember the show being this funny. Veronica always had a good sense of humor, as did her dad, but in this movie there were a surprising amount of laughs.

Also, the mystery isn't as deep as the full season one and two story lines (obviously). What's worse, I don't think the resolution of the mystery has that same "I should have seen it all along!" genius that made seasons 1 and 2 so special. I'd say the plot is comparable to one of the mini-arcs from season 3.

Lastly, as good as this movie is, it still doesn't exceed (or even meet) what the show already did at the top of its game. The emotional highs and lows are the same old thing as before, and the plot isn't nearly as neatly connected. I'd say I rate the movie as slightly above season 3, but not as good as seasons 1 or 2.

But what the Hell, you get to see Veronica work again, and it's too much fun to pass up!

Fans must see this movie.
