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.

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

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.

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

The new Nancy Drew isn't great but it is fun and, best of all, Emma Roberts breathes lively presence into this classic character.

perfect for a particular audience -- too old for an all-cartoon diet, but still not yet interested in movies about adults

Commercial Appeal (Memphis, TN)

The film begins by mocking the validity and relevance of its own source material, but somehow Nancy Drew survives.

It's got a lot of fun energy, and it's got a certain kind of inspired loopiness that I found entertaining.

This Nancy is a throwback, but a charming one, and Roberts (Julia Roberts' niece) plays her with an irresistible sweetness.

Okay, it's not L.A. Confidential, but the story was fine and the time passed quickly--or is that mercifully?

Rarely has the difference between 'knowledge' and 'knowingness' been so lightly and neatly sketched in a breezy entertainment.

Once the rote mystery elements take over, the film devolves into a second-rate whodunit for kids, but even then, Roberts' irrepressible cheeriness and curiosity in the face of danger proves too adorable to resist.

Feels more like pop Twin Peaks than anything else; call it the new Hollywood sincerity.
