Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The film is an obvious labor of love for all concerned, and the good times are infectious."
‑ Bruce Diones, New Yorker
"This isn't just a nostalgia trip. Almost a decade has passed, and the characters aren't just older, they've changed in recognizable and gratifying ways."
‑ Esther Breger, The New Republic
"Bell slips back into her Veronica character with ease, and while newbies to the franchise might wonder what the fuss was all about, the "Marshmallows" are happy."
‑ Lori Hoffman, Atlantic City Weekly
"Veronica is still the spit fire and quick witted Amazon who lands on her feet in every situation no matter how awkward or dangerous."
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
"Until now, Veronica Mars has been that movie that got funded by that Internet site. Now, it's just a good mystery movie with snappy dialogue. That's an even nobler thing to be."
‑ Chris Morgan, Paste Magazine
"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."
‑ Brianna Wellen, Chicago Reader
"Right now, the question is how did Veronica Mars turn out as a movie? It's a mixed bag. Too much time wasted on a whodunit that's more like a who-cares. No matter. Mars fans will have a blast."
‑ Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
"I've never seen the show that spawned it, but it was still exactly what I was expecting. I am neither overwhelmed nor underwhelmed by it. I am whelmed."
‑ MaryAnn Johanson, Flick Filosopher
"The film even manages things neatly at the end: we get a mixture of closure and openness, in which things are rounded off, yet there's still the possibility of another adventure."
‑ Philippa Hawker, Sydney Morning Herald
"Veronica Mars is exactly the film that fans were pining for and offers the kind of confident, small-scale storytelling that is eminently watchable to those new to the 'marshmallow' army."
‑ Simon Foster, Screen-Space
"Veronica herself is such a breath of fresh air as a strong female character: smart, secure, resourceful, loyal, funny and not the slightest bit chickish."
‑ Christy Lemire, ChristyLemire.com
"Veronica Mars is a delightful piece of fan service - a supersized TV reunion episode expanded for viewing in movie theaters."
‑ James Berardinelli, ReelViews
"Let's be honest, this movie is for the fans."
‑ Ken Hanke, Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
"Strictly for fans of the show"
‑ Robert Denerstein, Movie Habit
"Sassy, snappy two-hour spin-off from the original cult favorite."
‑ Susan Granger, SSG Syndicate
