Years after walking away from her past as a young 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
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 »
I've let her draw finger hearts on my upper thigh for the last 10 minutes, so, yeah, I get the stakes.

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 »
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.
