QUICK TAKE:
Dramedy: A young woman returns to her hometown to help clear her ex-boyfriend of accusations that he killed his pop star girlfriend.
PLOT:
It's been around a decade since Veronica Mars (KRISTEN BELL) graduated from high school in the coastal town of Neptune, California. Like her ousted sheriff turned private detective dad, Keith (ENRICO COLANTONI), Veronica got wrapped up in solving local crimes as an amateur sleuth while in school. But she's left that all behind for life in New York City where she lives with her boyfriend, Piz (CHRIS LOWELL), and appears will soon be landing a new job at a prestigious law firm.

Yet, when she hears that her former boyfriend turned Navy man, Logan Echolls (JASON DOHRING), is the chief suspect in his pop star girlfriend's recent murder, Veronica returns to Neptune to help him choose a defense lawyer. There, she witnesses even further abuse of power in the local police department by the hands of Sheriff Don Lamb (JERRY O'CONNELL) and Deputy Sacks (BRANDON HILLOCK), but is happy to reconnect with her best friends from school, Mac (TINA MAJORINO) and Wallace (PERCY DAGGS III).

When she ends up staying longer than expected, they drag her to their tenth high school reunion where she sees that some people have changed, such as former gang member Weevil (FRANCIS CAPRA), while others have remained the same and are as petty as before. Among them are possible suspects Gia (KRYSTEN RITTER), Cobb (MARTIN STARR) and Dick (RYAN HANSEN) -- especially since they were all connected to the disappearance and presumed death of another classmate years ago, while the pop star's chief fan and occasional doppelganger, Ruby (GABY HOFFMANN), is obviously also on the list. The longer Veronica stays in Neptune, the more she ends up invested in figuring out the mystery, all while hoping to clear Logan's name.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
