(2014) (Kristen Bell, Jason Dohring) (PG-13)
- 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.
- 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.
- WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
- Those who are fans of the old TV show (or anyone in its cast) will likely be interested.
- WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: PG-13
- For sexuality including references, drug content, violence and some strong language.
