NANCY DREW (2007 USA)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 3.5|5.0 Starsììì

Nancy Drew—live action film based on the Nancy Drew novel set—has a sound, average script that does credit to the original novels. It’s a piece of uniform, average story telling, but it’s sound and turns into a good afternoon film watch that serves the purpose of a decent mystery story for the teen audience.

Storyline

Nancy Drew (Emma Roberts) is just a typical girl who happens to have a special ability to solve crime. Nancy and her father, Carson Drew (Tate Donovan), move to Los Angeles where Nancy, a girl meant to sleuth, works on one of the biggest mysteries of Hollywood—what happened to actress Dehlia Draycott (Laura Harring)?

Additional Thanks

Good work for Director Andrew Fleming. Thank you to Executive Producers Susan Ekins, Mark Vahradian, and Ben Waisbren for making the film possible. Additional characters/cast include: Thug (Craig Gellis), Charlie (Rich Cooper), Ned Nickerson (Max Thieriot), Bess (Amy Bruckner), Georgie (Kay Panabaker), Chief McGinnis (Cliff Bemis), Father Murray (David Doty), Landlady (Pat Carroll), Hannah (Monica Parker), Barbara Barbara (Caroline Aaron), and John Leshing (Marshall Bell).

Buy a ticket? Yes? No? Maybe?

Yes. Emma Roberts performs well in her role as Nancy Drew.
