Flipped (2010)



Critic Consensus: While not without its nostalgic charms, Rob Reiner's sometimes awkward adaptation of Wendelin Van Draanen's childhood novel doesn't reach the heights of the director's earlier work like Stand By Me.

All Critics (73) | Top Critics (23)

Flipped is Rob Reiner's best film in 18 years.

Audience Reviews for Flipped

Films about children growing up or have made a movie as survival guide like Diary of a Wimpy Kid dont get good marks from the public, but i actually truthfully like this film.

Scott Green

Super Reviewer

Great film. An adolescent love story for adults to enjoy.

Gregory Dark

Super Reviewer
