Emma Roberts and Max Thieriot star in the new Nancy Drew movie. Get Kidzworld's review right here!

Long before Veronica Mars started snooping around Neptune, California, a crime-fighting heroine named Nancy Drew was solving mysteries in River Heights. For the first time since her debut in the 1930s, Nancy's making the leap to the big screen. Get the goods on this flick starring Emma Roberts right here.

Nancy Drew - Small Town Girl

Nancy Drew is not your average teenager. Growing up in the small town of River Heights, Nancy has become a local celebrity for her crime-solving skills. While most kids are off downloading music and hanging at the skate park, Nancy prefers to sew her own clothes and track petty criminals. When Nancy's dad gets a job for the summer in LA, she promises to give up her sleuthing and attempt to just be a normal teen. But old habits die hard and there's always a mystery around every corner - this time a 25 year-old murder mystery that's just dying to be solved!

Nancy Drew - The Ghost of Dehlia Draycott

Nancy's dad lets her pick the house they'll live in while staying in LA, so she picks the haunted mansion of long-dead movie star Dehlia Draycott. Within the first night, Nancy hears strange noises in the attic, comes face to face with the creepy caretaker and stumbles across some serious clues. At first she tries to ignore the mystery and settle into her new school, but it becomes quickly apparent that she's not like the other girls (as her new tag-along Corky points out regularly). So, she sets out to solve the case. Road blocks, robberies and death threats are encountered along the way, but nothing can bring down the ever-cheerful Nancy Drew.

Nancy Drew - Old-School Atmosphere

Taking from the ambiance of the original book series, Nancy Drew is a prim and proper girl who has a love of things from the '50s - from her hand-made outfits to her blue roadster. Because of this, Nancy doesn't really fit in to the modern world around her, but it makes for an original take on what it feels like to be an outsider.

Nancy Drew - Bottom Line

Nancy Drew is about as campy as you can get. The '50s vibe is a welcome change from the glitz and glamour of most teen heroines. Nancy Drew is smart, sassy and isn't afraid to dig deep to solve mysteries. The mystery at hand in this flick isn't very complicated, but there are enough twists and turns to keep you interested. By the time you walk out of the theater, you will hopefully take with you an important life lesson - while not everyone is popular, we can all attract like-minded friends if we just stay true to who we are.
