    Loved it from start to finish. Have seldom been in a film audience where the viewers were that tuned in to every nuance. And that was a random Sunday afternoon crowd. It made sense that Kristen and Logan were adults now (and that Dick wasn’t). And I liked the star turn for Kristen Ritter.

      Well, of course the audience loved it — chances are good they were fans of the show already.

      The more I thought about it, the more I realized that my biggest problem was the fact that they jettisoned her dream of being an FBI agent. It was such a huge part of who she was and they just dumped it as an afterthought. There’s no way she would have given up on it, not unless something drastic happened. The idea that she would have just given up is at odds with her character.

        I think of it more like a nice way to augur her future at the series end; but could the movie really have worked I’m the FBI/action drama mode? That form is traditionally not so nice to the ladies, not on the budget they had. Lawyer by day, private dick by night, much more filmable.

          It didn’t need to be an action movie for her to work for the FBI.

            You’re thinking more thriller, serial killer tracking?
