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

When she meets Mrs. Barnes (Ruby Jetson's landlady), Veronica introduced herself as "Pam Martin", a reference to Pamela Sue Martin, who played Nancy Drew on The Hardy Boys/Nancy Drew Mysteries (1977). (Throughout Veronica Mars (2004), Veronica occasionally referred to herself as "Nancy Drew", after the famous girl detective.) See more »

Goofs

Logan is seen wearing U.S. Navy dress whites which is not a liberty uniform worn by the US Navy, nor worn just to pick up someone at the airport. Not to mention wearing a non-U.S. Navy high pressure cap. When he is leaving at the end of the movie, he is wearing what is suppose to be summer whites. Again he's wearing the wrong cap, no shoulder boards, his designator doesn't exist, and his belt tab should not be pulled passed his buckle. The tab should only be sticking out of the buckle. Had he worn the correct US Navy hat, he would have been insulting the military. The costume designer should have consulted with a military adviser if trying to represent the US armed forces in the movie. See more »

It's Never as Good as the First Time
4 August 2014 | by llseeSee all my reviews

Excuse the use of the Sade song title, but it really sums up my feelings about this film. I wanted to like it, I really did. I liked the TV show, and even contributed to the Kickstarter campaign. I'm not sure what I expected, but what we got was basically a 2 hour TV reunion show (2 hours if you had commercials, the film is only 105 minutes).

In 10 years, the residents of Jupiter have gotten older, but not smarter or wiser. And, sadly, even though all of the actors expressed great enthusiasm for the project, they all seem a little tired. They're happy for the pay checks, but in the end, they are rehashing the same characters, with the same emotions and the same actions as 10 years ago. Kristen Bell always brought that world-weary sense of cynicism to Veronica Mars, even when she was playing a high school detective. Now she just seems weary. I would much rather watch her in 'House of Lies', where that more grown up cynicism shines.

Bottom line is we should all have just moved on, and let our memories of the TV show remain intact. This was not an elegant ending of a good show, but a sad reminder of what we once liked and enjoyed.
