NANCY DREW

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - Film Reviews - DON­ALD CLARKE

Di­rected by Andrew Flem­ing. Star­ring Emma Roberts, Josh Flit­ter, Rachael Leigh Cook, Laura Har­ring, Barry Bost­wick PG cert

Teenage sleuth Nancy (the perky Roberts) moves to LA and sets out to un­ravel the mys­tery sur­round­ing a long-van­ished movie star. The rea­son­ably lively film can never de­cide quite how snarky it wants to be about its source ma­te­rial. At times, we are in Scooby Doo ter­ri­tory. Else­where the ac­tion seems to be aping Chan­dler. Weird.
