Here’s a mystery even Veronica Mars couldn’t solve: Why does Fifty Pills squander our favorite TV sleuth in a do-nothing role? Bell gamely plays the love interest of a goody-goody college freshman (Thumbsucker’s Pucci) forced to sell 50 Ecstasy pills in one day to earn tuition money. The direct-to-DVD indie keeps the cutesy premise fresh with clever cameos (American Pie’s Eddie Kaye Thomas plays a doper with a Diff’rent Strokes fetish), but wasting Bell — even in the EXTRAS (come on, she’s barely in the making-of!) — makes Pills a funky trip.
Genre: Comedy; Starring: Kristen Bell, Lou Taylor Pucci; Director: Theo Avergerinos; Author: Matthew Perniciaro; Status: In Season; Runtime (in minutes): 83; MPAA Rating: Unrated; Distributor: Echo Bridge Entertainment
