Nancy Drew accompanies her father on a business trip to Los Angeles California. Nancy booked an abandoned house for them to stay in hiding the mystery of a movie star's murder from her father as a promise that she would stay out of trouble and be normal. Fitting into high school as a normal teen turns out to be harder than it sounds, for Nancy Drew. She soon befriends a younger boy and determines that the sleuthing world is where she belongs. While snooping through the attic, she finds a letter from the Hollywood star, Dehlia Draycott, written to someone named 'Z'. This leads Nancy on a wild goose chase as she comes to find out that Dehlia has a secret daughter, her daughter is to inherit everything and someone killed Dehlia because they were written out of the will. Written by Chefeetaboopers

Did You Know?


Nancy's evidence shows that Dehlia Draycott (the actress whose death forms the basis for the mystery) died of drowning in 1981 at the age of 43. This closely mirrors the real-life death of actress Natalie Wood, who drowned while yachting off Catalina Island in 1981, at the age of 43. See more »


When Nancy spends her first night at the home in Hollywood, there is a digital clock/radio on her bedroom nightstand. In the next scene, it has been replaced by a old-fashioned wind-up alarm clock, which awakens her. Nancy mentioned she likes old-fashioned things. It is possible she took the alarm-clock which had been there and replaced it with her own. See more »

People give this movie a chance and You'll love it, even the book readers
18 June 2007 | by Doveoflove85See all my reviews

I'm probably one of the biggest Nancy Drew fans out there. I've read every book three times over and I've played a lot of the Nancy drew games. I Loved this movie. It kept you entertained the whole time you watched it. I went with about 10 of my friends and everyone LOVED it. There were three woman sitting behind us who appeared to be in their late 30's to early 40's and I asked them how they liked it, they said they loved it! So you see it will be an entertainment to all ages. You just have to give it a chance. And it teaches a lesson too, just be yourself even if everyone around you is exactly alike. So overall, this move was great. I'm going to see it a second time now! So stop bashing it please. Its a really good movie!
