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

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.

It is aimed at kids and as far as I could tell it pleased the kid audience - so adults will just have to grin and bear it.

Mostly it's all poop picnics, blue barf, and Urkel (Jaleel White) playing a banjo.

A cotton candy movie. It's sweet and colorful, it goes down easily, and where kids [love it], their parents may find a small taste is more than enough.

"Judy Moody and the Not Bummer Summer" isn't just "Rare!," as its title heroine would say - it's a seriously perfect vacation destination.

I know I probably shouldn't have liked it as much as I did, but I have to admit I enjoyed its colorful, chaotic goofiness.

Got a restless preadolescent daughter around the house? An air-conditioned theater and this breathless kaleidoscope of a movie might be the answer.

For those sighing about why they don't make more movies like last year's Ramona and Beezus, based on the book series by Beverly Cleary, they just did.

If it is narrow in its appeal, then the movie is earnest about entertaining a certain strata of kid-dom who will appreciate it more than I.

The movie may be high on the junk food meter and much too frantic when chasing down runaway plot threads, but who cares. Judy's creatively rowdy alternative kid universe delights with its Juno boot camp wild tween talk lingo and cartoonesque kid satire.

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...

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