At times, the movie feels like a commercial for Wonder Bread, stretched to feature length.

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

Flipped is as phony as a poodle-skirted waitress at a mall diner, yet it's as sweet as a malt. A vanilla one.

Reiner, who made the similarly themed The Sure Thing about opposites who repel and attract, is a most sympathetic director of actors.

It's a bit too Wonder Years at times, but the odd two-narrators gimmick plays right into the film's "flip" in structure.

That Flipped isn't insufferably cute is a measure of its integrity. But it still strains to view the world through the eyes of children without a filter of grown-up cynicism.

We have here a movie that's pitch-perfect one minute and awkwardly schmaltzy the next.

The whole thing would go down like a peanut butter and marshmallow sandwich, were it not for the lively lead presence of Madeline Carroll and Callan McAuliffe, two young talents who make the movie better than it deserves to be.

There's barely half a film here, stretched and pulled so thin you can nearly see through it.

A pleasantly nostalgic and well-intentioned family movie featuring strong performances by its young actors.

A minor pleasure that will strike a lot of moviegoers -- those who think no one makes movies for them anymore -- as a major treat.

Flipped offers an achingly familiar look at puppy love from two contrasting angles, each of them insufferably saccharine.

Based on a popular young-adult novel and brimming with all the angst and schmaltz you'd expect from such a source, this awkward coming-of-age drama does nothing to gild the legacy of middlebrow maestro Rob Reiner.

Reiner's picture lands somewhere between synthetic nostalgia and the texture of real life.

Maybe what makes Flipped such a warm entertainment is how it re-creates a life we wish we'd had when we were 14.

Though the dialogue rings too chirpy ("Gee whiz!") and faintly anachronistic ("Get over it, man!"), the acting is wonderfully subtle...

I can't say anything nice about Flipped, a painfully clumsy adaptation of a tween novel by Wendelin Van Draanen.

Flipped is the kind of small, special movie that wraps you up in so much warmth, humor and humanity that it will leave you wishing that stories like this weren't so rare.

Flipped is sweet and something like honest, heartfelt and phonily sincere, and it will be, at risk of coarse honesty, catnip for old people.

Reiner, in very broad strokes, works in issues of poverty, thwarted dreams and family obligation, and almost pulls it off.

A somewhat leaden piece of work, its considerable charms nearly smothered by strange pacing and awkward staging.

Reiner again demonstrates compassion and insight into young people's battles to acquire self-knowledge, but in his new film, too many clearly fictional characters and contrived situations bog down his story.
