Will Leitch
Deadspin

An assault on the senses, a fever nightmare of color explosions and extreme closeups of a child's tonsils while they scream for the ice cream man.

Mild-mannered, kid friendly. Not much there for adults. Except for Heather Graham...

It's a fun, imaginative movie that is terrific for young kids. I think it encourages children to celebrate creativity.

It's a simple story that treads familiar ground, but it's fun to watch as a family, and it has an impressive amount of energy behind it.

A kaleidoscope of bright colours, the best thing about this chirpy comedy for tweens is 12 year old Australian actress Jordana Beatty, whose energy and enthusiasm as the bubbly Judy Moody with the shock of unruly red hair, is contagious

Rammed with speech bubbles, text messages and onscreen status updates, this is a cartoonish car crash.

Only the children manage to survive it. The adults are totally plastic throughout.

Having a middle-aged male review it is probably ridiculous. So is asking its target audience to listen to a middle-aged male's opinions on the subject.

Ought to go down fine with the 10-year-olds it's aimed at.

Watchable, sweet natured and fast paced children's comedy enlivened by colourful production design and a charming and likeable performance from newcomer Jordana Beatty...

For children, Judy's simple suburban pleasures and unsophisticated emotions and tantrums are something that many of them will relate to.

Graham is lovely and Beatty a natural, but if you're not seven years old, it's one long headache.

Too bad, then, that there's no real joy in all the physical business filling the screen, not even in Judy's animated daydreams. Bummer.

Full color, body excretions, shouting and not much else, "Judy Moody and the Not Bummer Summer" is dull as a summer spent indoors.

Vue Weekly (Edmonton, Canada)

Hyperactively desperate-to-entertain and also veers into too-episodic, too-peppy and too-kooky territory. Would be a lot more funner if it were much less dumber.

We're very glad Judy Moody's summer turned out not to be a bummer, and wish the same could be said for the reviewers who have to sit through her movie.

The best thing about Judy Moody and the Not Bummer Summer is the engaging performance of red-haired Aussie starlet Beatty, who will play the titular star in Eloise in Paris. We can only hope that film sticks to the book.
