I wouldn’t consider myself a Marshmallow, but I did watch, and enjoy, the Veronica Mars TV series. The movie is everything you would expect from a great two part TV episode. There is Veronica’s familiar sharp witted dialog, and the pacing is just like the TV show.
They did a great job paying homage to the TV show, and even Kickstarter. You’ll love all the references they give to the show, especially early on.
The one knock I’d give it is the vast number of names that get thrown around. I had a hard time keeping track of who they were talking about sometimes. Fortunately they do a good job keeping everything in context to minimize the confusion.
There are plenty of laughs and a few “Oh no she didn’t” moments. Lets hope that this movie is a stepping stone to more movies or maybe a comeback of the TV series.
Note: my grade of an “A” for this movie assumes you watched the TV series. I have no idea how well this will be recieved by non Marshmallows.
Don’t miss your favorite movie moments because you have to pee or need a snack. Use the RunPee app (Android or iPhone ) whenever you go to the movies. (We've been doing this over 10 years now.) We always have Peetimes for the latest wide release films, including OnWard, 1917, Sonic the Hedgehog, etc. You can also keep up with the latest movie news and reviews on our blog or by following us on Twitter @RunPee, and liking us on Facebook.

Aspiring author. Would like to finish his “Zombie Revelations” trilogy if he could break away for working on RunPee and the cottage he’s building for RunPee Mom.
