Bright-eyed Kristen Bell reprises her TV role as a small-town-coastal-California amateur sleuth in this talky, harmless comic detective yarn about the search for the murderer of a local pop singer, electrocuted in her bathtub. If nothing else, it’s a showcase for numerous thirtysomething Hollywood actors bubbling under the big time: Jason Dohring, Gaby Hoffmann (from Crystal Fairy), Krysten Ritter, Dax Shepard, Chris Lowell, Francis Capra, Jerry O’Connell, et al. Also with cameos by Justin Long and the ubiquitous James Franco. Directed by the original show’s producer Rob Thomas from a screenplay he wrote with Diane Ruggiero (103 min.).
