I've never seen Veronica Mars—shocking, I know—so I'm in no position to tell you how this compares to the TV show. It looks like they try to keep the movie understandable for new viewers, so maybe I'll give it a try without trying to catch up on the series. (There's a precedent for this: Weirdly, I got into Firefly by watching Serenity in the theaters first. I do not regret that choice; Serenity was a decent introductory movie, and so when I finally watched the series, it felt like the best, most involved prequel in history.)
