Showrunner Rob Thomas finally gets to appease the cultishly devoted fans of his television series about a teenage private eye (Kristen Bell) with this feature presentation that finds Veronica Mars all grown up, returning to her hometown for her high school reunion and, you guessed it, caught up in a murder mystery. Bell has bounced around following her television run as Mars, most notably making a splash in film in Forgetting Sarah Marshall, and recently back on television in the Showtime series House of Lies, so the timing couldn’t be better to unite her growing base among the two formats. Thomas, the small-screen guru, is likely aiming to inspire me and a host of other Veronica Mars neophytes to delve into the earlier incarnation of the character before the inevitable follow-up/spin-off somewhere down the road. Opens wide March 14. (PG-13) Not screened in time for review
