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.

However, her new start is interrupted when she is called back to her hometown of Neptune during a high school reunion. Her former boyfriend Logan Echolls has been accused of murdering someone for a second time, despite her proving his innocence to a first murder as a teenage sleuth.

The actor dissects the actor in an empathetic NY Times piece.
James Franco has penned an article for the NY Times opinion pages, in which he dissects the recently questionable behaviour of his fellow actor, Shia LaBeouf. From the onset, it's unclear whether Franco is gearing up to admonish or encourage his industry fellow as the 127 Hours star becomes another voice adding his two cents to the Shia debate.
If We Were In The Same Profession As Shia, We'd Be Doing This Face At His Antics Too.
As it turns out, James is here to empathise with the Transformers actor and try to shed a little experiential light on the situation that has had the media bellowing "HE CRAZY" in response to such antics as plagiarism, weird tweets, wearing a paper bag on his head, holding an art exhibition with himself as the main artefact and apologising profusely at every turn. "For Mr. LaBeouf's sake I hope it is nothing serious," writes Franco; us too.
The 'Transformers' actor is "not famous anymore" which has just brought him a whole lot more attention.
So Shia LaBeouf isn't famous anymore? Why then, if the 27 year-old Nymphomaniac actor is so averse to a bit of spotlight, has Shia embarked on a trail of most bizarre incidents, starting will his plagiarism of a graphic artist's work, followed by over-apologising, declaring his retirement, walking out of a Nymphomaniac press conference, wearing a paper bag with "I Am Not Famous Anymore" and leading up to his LA art exhibition.
Shia's "I Am Not Famous Anymore" Stunt Brought Him More Fame, Ironically.
The list of weirdness was long enough without the art exhibition, entitled "#IAMSORRY." Visitors are reported to have been scanned by a security guard before they were allowed in one at a time to "see" Shia. They were expected to pick an implement from a table, which apparently included a Daniel Clowes graphic novel, a wrench, and some Hershey Kisses, before going into a room where Shia sat silently with a bag over his head.
