Veronica Mars Review


Funded by fans, this follow-up to the cult TV show feels a lot like an extended reunion episode. But even those unfamiliar with the series will enjoy the twisty plot and smart dialog, plus the sparky Kristen Bell in the title role. And while there are rather too many characters for a stand-alone movie, they all feed nicely into the central mystery.

After escaping from the run-down seaside town of Neptune, California, nine years ago, Veronica (Bell) has become a New York lawyer. But just as she's on the verge of landing her first proper job, an old friend is murdered back home, waking her investigatory instincts. The worst of it is that her ex Logan (Dohring) is the prime suspect, so Veronica heads home to help him clear his name. Her private eye dad (Colantoni) just rolls his eyes when she slips back into her old mystery-solving role, working with her pals Mac, Weevil and Wallace (Majorino, Capra and Daggs). But three other classmates - Gia, Cobb and Dick (Ritter, Starr and Hansen) - are also involved. And the fact that she keeps putting off her return to New York annoys her boyfriend Piz (Lowell).

The most refreshing thing about this film is the way filmmaker Thomas refuses to play by the usual rules. Bell may have been offered a dream job, but we fully understand why she's blowing it off to help her friends. And the whodunit plot is just intriguing enough to hold our interest: we don't really care who the villain really is, but it's fun to watch Veronica dig through the clues and challenge every level of authority. And the script gleefully stirs in red herrings, side-plots and lots of suspicious-looking characters.

Veronica Mars Kickstarter Smashes Records, Reaching Its Goal Overnight

Kristen Bell Enrico Colantoni

The Veronica Mars movie is happening!

We’d love to say “told you so”, but really, did anyone have any doubts? With a funny campaign video, some pretty awesome perks and an extremely devoted cult following, it was pretty much certain that the Kickstarter campaign, which went online yesterday, would reach its goal of $2 million. What people didn’t expect though, was that it would happen in less than 24 hours. This makes it not only the biggest and most ambitious Kickstarter project to date, but also the fastest to reach its goal. So, the moral of the story? All hail the awesome power of the internet. And devoted fans, of course.

Now Kristen Bell just has to take care of all those personal phone call perks. It’s probably good that they didn’t say “home visit” or something. People really do miss the feisty teenage detective and the whole VM crew, whose on-screen lives were cut short after just three seasons. So now the show’s creator Rob Thomas, along with what's left of the talented cast, face the difficult task of making a film that will please the hardcore marsmallows. You guessed it, that’s the affectionate name for the VM fandom. With the budget taken care of, you can expect the film on a screen near you sometime in 2014. Can we get three cheers?

Veronica Mars: Season Three Review

Though the rocky third season of Veronica Mars, the television adventures of the tough, vengeful daughter of a California PI, was not as universally acclaimed as its predecessors, it set out about demonstrating the oft-spouted theory that even the weakest episodes of a great show are preferable to the best episodes of, oh, let's say, anything on CBS.

Of course, it helps that season three of Veronica features a healthy portion of the show at its best, alongside the weaker. In previous years, Veronica would be working on a single over-arching case throughout the season, even as each episode brought a new mystery-of-the-week. This format was dropped in season three in an effort to bring a new audience to the ratings-challenged show. While these 20 episodes lack the long build and unity of purpose afforded to previous story arcs, the experiments with format -- shorter arcs at first, and then "stand-alone" episodes which are nonetheless rich in both story and character development -- reveal Veronica Mars as a sturdy enterprise, entertainment value intact across structural changes.

The First $20 Million Is Always the Hardest Review

It's the middle of the dot-com mega boom. Two bright-eyed twenty-somethings drive luxury sports cars down the Silicon Valley freeways, chatting on cell phones about money and meetings. Here's the gag: they're actually in adjacent cars and arrive to work at the same place. Unfortunately, this is some of the stronger and more coherent humor in this lifeless attempt at a big business comedy.

Jon Favreau claims partial responsibility (as co-screenwriter) for this stumbling mess, a film that could've used dark humor and the luxury of retrospect to comment on the freakish habits of our late 1990s Internet culture. (The script, in theory at least, is based on Po Bronson's novel.) Instead, Favreau, screenwriter Gary Tieche (creator of TV's MDs), and director Mick Jackson (L.A. Story) play it as safe, as slow, and as vanilla as possible.

The Wrong Guy Review

This little trifle, produced way back in 1997 and only now seeing the light of day, grinds its simple, simple prmise into the ground within 10 minutes, leaving you with 84 more minutes of repetition of some occasionally sorta-funny lines and visual gags.

Dave Foley reprises the deer-in-the-headlights character he's been pushing for a decade, this time playing an executive convinced he'll be accused of murdering his boss (the usual pulling-the-bloody-knife-from-the-corpse trick). The catch is that the actual murder (and murderer) has been caught on film, so Foley's not really suspected at all.
