Just lovely: Great plot, brilliant cast and character's evolution. It's human, it's touching and it has and uncommon and clever ending that almost all the typical romantic comedies lack. After watching it, it gets difficult not falling in love with Julie's character and with the teenagers potential love story.

Nice young love story. The guy and gal bother are cute and make a lovely pair on screen. Totally watchable.

Cute film but I can't get over the fact that the boy lead is SUCH a jerk and takes for granted the friendship of such a great girl like Juli. Bryce is a complete ASS and really ruined the movie for me. Even though he gets nicer to her towards the end she should have told him to piss off LONG before then!

This was a good movie the time period of when it was meant to be set was believable and it had some very good acting. I like how it flipped from the boys point of view on things to the girls.. it was kind of interesting seeing how different feelings can occur during a situation.. an original idea and an interesting storyline, worth watching wasn't a bad movie.

Flipped would not be great without its innocent enticement and perspective exploring the characters. Unfotunately, while exploring these characters and constant perceptual narrating could end up lost and an ending that could not live up to its height.

One awkward and wholly unbelievable scene with "Uncle Richard", but other than that I love this movie. If I ever have daughters I am going to force them to watch this.

Initially, the narrative approach to story telling was not attractive but classic boy meets girl story won over through 2 very well selected and played characters. early teen movie and very good one at that.

A cute innocent romance story, strong young talents leading and now told in a typical hollywood styled structure. I personally enjoyed the change.

Flipped is a sweet, charming, moving, lovely, well-acted coming-of-age romantic drama comedy film.
While the plot offers nothing new in particular (as with mostly all rom-com films)...the 'girl meets boy' mixed with 'the not-your-typical girl next door' story, but the storytelling is slightly different.
Adapted from the book with the same name by Wendelin Van Draanen, the film is presented in a rather unique 'he-said she-said' style, through the eyes and thoughts of the male lead, Bryce and then again through the eyes and thoughts of female lead, Juli, alternately presenting their views and perspectives on a shared set of events.
Nearly every single event that happened in the film is told at least twice, although it seems repetitive, but surprisingly, it never feels boring or annoying. It's actually fascinating and insightful to be able to see into the thoughts and feelings of people in general. Things are not really what it seems and there's always more than meets the eye. As the film progresses, you are so emotionally invested in the characters that you actually begin to eagerly anticipate what the other side of the story might be, how the other person feels the way he/she does.
The film also gives a feeling of nostalgia, even for those who never lived in the era (the story is set in 50's or 60's suburban area) or experienced the same events as the two leads. It feels authentic and relatable nonetheless. Juli might appear as an ordinary girl, but she's a sweet, kind, beautiful, daring girl at heart once you get to know her.
The two lead stars are perfect in their respective roles. Most of the characters in the film have sufficient character development for the audience to understand them. Flipped is a period young love story, told in a simple and heartfelt manner. A rare cinematic gem.
"A painting is more than the sum of its parts. A cow by itself is just a cow. A meadow by itself is just grass, flowers. And the sun peeking through the trees is just a beam of light.But if you put them all together...it can be magic.You have to look at the whole landscape to see its beauty."
"Some of us get dipped in flat, some in satin, some in gloss; but every once in a while, you find someone who's iridescent, and once you do, nothing will ever compare."

Cute. Romantic. Funny.

This film had potential at its start. But the story failed to uphold any notion of a decent, satisfying plot. The writers tried to make the movie "real". But when does any real-life situation even come close to a nonexistent possibility like this? The character development was, put bluntly, lame. The cinematography wasn't bad, I will give them that, but overall this movie was a waste of 35 mm and time.
