    I enjoyed LeahAndNic's review. Right on. I saw it with a full house opening week - and, while I would have enjoyed a few more quieter, less frenetic moments in the film - it thoroughly entertained the kids - and adults - in the audience - including me. The CG graphics were a fun nod to a world-gone-gamified - and, aside from some unnecessary fixation on poop jokes (of course, getting some of the best "ewwws!" and laughs from the kids), the film provided a playful romp with decent messages. Loved that Aunt Opal is a walking creativity-maven. And if this film gets kids reading the book series it was based on, that's not such a bummer summer either. Full Review »

    I took my neice to see this, it was the worst movie i have ever seen in a long time. Why are the vast majority of films that are being released nowadays sucking so bad? It was horrendous. Even my 8 year old neice hatted it. Full Review »

    Cute kids' comedy plays like a more girl-centric version of Diary Of A Wimpy Kid, as plucky young Judy Moody (Jordana Beatty) sees her big plans for summer break go down the drain when her two best friends wind up going out of town for the summer. Things look up when, inspired and aided by her free-spirited Aunt Opal (Heather Graham), Judy comes up with a wacky list of dares and adventures to be undertaken by both her and her faraway friends. Nothing hugely original here, but Beatty (an Australian actress doing a flawless American accent) is appealing, Graham is tremendously sexy and loveable, and in one of the more surprising bits of casting this summer, Jaleel White - yes, I'm talking iconic TV nerd Steve Urkel - is genuinely charming as Judy's teacher. I know the reviews are crummy and the Megacritic scores reflect that, but I'd take this over Mr. Popper's Penguins or (God help me) Transformers: Dark Of The Moon any day. Full Review »
