Nancy Drew Reviews

Prairie Miller

A great coming of age girl movie that prioritzes teen personality and brain power over female body appeal.

...younger people should find it entertaining, and the spoofing will not be a complete waste for many adults.

For adults, there are some pleasures to be found here and there, but parents won't be blown away by it the way their daughters will.

I think a character like Nancy Drew can still work in today's pop culture world, but unfortunately the film doesn't believe in her enough.

Big-screen teen sleuth is cute, if a bit bland.

There's something very weird about Andrew Fleming's movie, perhaps because it's essentially The Black Dahlia for tweens, with kissing but without the sex or mutilation.

Carolyn Keene's straitlaced teen detective gets a modern, ironic makeover, but the irony wobbles and the jokes aren't strong enough to carry it.

For sheer objectionable stupidity and dullness, this film takes the biscuit.

Chaotic narrative and half-baked ideas.

This update on the Nancy Drew saga uses old-fashioned stylings in a modern context to confusing, and none-too-suspenseful effect. It's a non-event that fails to do the much-loved character justice.

The original books appeal to generations of readers, but this flick's strictly for tweens and slumming homage-spotters.

At a time of fine teen comedies such as Mean Girls and Freaky Friday, the real mystery was why this was made at all.

That this is just about passable as a divorced parent's weekend treat is down to Roberts' charm and the timeless appeal of Nancy herself.

The age-old mystery doesn't exactly thrill, but there's humour here and there and a swotty heroine that parents, at least, will approve of.

Sadly bland update of everyone's favorite girl detective series never rises above its Scooby Doo-level plot.

t's hard to imagine a better casting choice for the role of the spunky girl detective than (Emma) Roberts, who's transitioned nicely from her television role on Unfabulous to handling lead roles in teen flicks.

'Nancy Drew' still has a televisual feel - more 'Murder, She Wrote' than junior 'Marple'.

It's one of the few tween movies that isn't in your face; its limpness becomes appealing.

Nancy's not nearly different enough from other movie girls. And that makes her look more old than fresh.
