Doug Wright Reporting

Daughter and father head of to tinsel town where they move into a house with a reputation.

Seems a movie star lived there and her murder has never been solved.

Ahh, the coincidence or did Nancy engineer this?

It's irresistible to our young heroine and Nancy, with the help of a newly acquired friend, Corky-played by Josh Flitter-begin to unravel the mystery.

"Nancy Drew" has the feel of a quality, after school, made for T.V. movie, and from the get go, demands suspension of all plausibility.

Nancy is portrayed as extremely straight laced and prim and proper, almost to the point of being a geek funny, when I read the books, that's not how I pictured Nancy at all.

Although a little lighthearted for my taste and melodramatic, the target audience will probably enjoy this film more than I did.

"Nancy Drew" gets 2 stars from me, but again, the target movie goers will most likely be more enthusiastic."Nancy Drew" is rated PG.

Coming up at noon, we'll take a look at "Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer."
