In this post-Veronica Mars world, I was immediately drawn to Nancy Drew hoping to fill the now empty void. And as you might expect, the family comedy adaptation of the classic kids novel was not exactly what I was craving or even expecting. But that’s not a bad thing because Nancy Drew is one of the funnest family film I’ve seen in years, aside from may-be the Pixar flicks. Unlike other modern day teen adaptations, it doesn’t try to be “too-cool-for-school”, jam packing a soundtrack with hip new cover songs, and a cast of good looking model-level kids. Nancy Drew attempts to bring the crazy and absurd fun tone of the books on to the big screen, without dumbing it down, and without losing the good qualities in an attempt to make it more accessible to the target audience.

Now that Veronica Mars may be canceled (we are still unsure?), all we have to look forward to is the Nancy Drew movie (Movie Trailer). Well fear not, star Emma Roberts has already signed on for a sequel.
In the first film, Teen detective Nancy Drew (played by Emma Roberts) accompanies her father on a business trip to Los Angeles, where she happens upon clues to a murder mystery involving a movie star. Based on the book series created in 1930 by Edward Stratemeyer, of which over 200 million books have been sold worldwide.
Producer Jerry Weintraub, director Andrew Fleming and Roberts also announced another family friendly film for Warner Bros called Rodeo Girl. But who cares about that movie? Really.
Nancy Drew hits theaters on June 15th 2007.
