Veronica Mars

On the verge of accepting a job at a high-powered New York law firm, former teenage sleuth Veronica Mars (Kristen Bell) is lured back to her hometown by an old flame to solve a murder, conveniently arriving on the same weekend as their ten-year high school reunion. Director Rob Thomas caters directly to fans of the 2004-'07 cable series (as well he should have; they funded the film through Kickstarter); this big-screen version packs in as many old characters as possible, and a few of the series' most famous lines are repeated word for word. The uninitiated may not go for the all-too-convenient crime solving, melodramatic love triangle, and playful banter, but cultists will find all the show's pleasures intact. With James Franco, Jamie Lee Curtis, Martin Starr, and Justin Long.
