Almost since Veronica Mars (2004) went off the air, there's been talk of making a movie. Rob Thomas even developed a pitch that revolved around graduation day at Hearst college: Wallace (Percy Daggs III) and Mac (Tina Majorino) were graduating, Veronica (Kristen Bell) had been sidetracked by freeing Keith (Enrico Colantoni) from prison and there was a murder in Neptune that was affecting the beach city's spring break business. Warner Brothers wasn't convinced there was enough interest to warrant a major studio-sized movie about Veronica, and the project never got off the ground. Part of that story was later used as the premise of the fourth season of the series, released on July 19, 2019 by streaming platform Hulu. See more »

Towards the end of the closing credits, we hear one of Logan's voice mail recordings:
"[phone ringing] This is Logan reminding you: if you're offered a seat on a rocket ship, don't ask which seat, just get on. Sheryl Sandberg said that. So don't leave a message. Go get on that rocket ship. Or, leave a message. Your call. Your decision will tell me a lot about you." See more »
I grew up with all 3 seasons. However, while seasons 1 & 2 were brilliant, season 3 sucked to high heaven. The movie is definitely just for those that really missed the characters and just needed a fresh 107 minutes of Veronica.
The story offered isn't exactly water tight, but if you're a true Veronica Mars fan you will overlook the odd logical glitch in the story.
One thing that gave me a pleasant surprise was that it's still jaw-dropping amazing to look at Kristen Bell. Her cute and sexy voice/smile/attitude just makes you forget about some of the truly crappy storytelling in the movie.
That the movie has a rating of 7,8 (03/20/2014) doesn't surprise me. This is just purely a hardcore fan rating.
Bottom line: Veronica Mars fans will get what they deserve.
