So-so tween riches-to-rags story has positive lesson.

An obnoxious and self-absorbed little girl tries to cope with a down-scaled life.

It's all extraordinarily predictable, made no more palatable by flat characters and a dull cast.

There's a fair amount of greening, but that doesn't make Whitney any less grating.

As she learns the value of public schools and pickup trucks, her erstwhile friends in Philadelphia seem happy to be rid of her. By movie's end, you'll feel exactly the same.

It flies off the rails in a third act so devoid of logic it could have been concocted on the moon.

Helmer Odiorne creates a suitably groomed pastoral setting for Gilchriest's relentlessly upbeat script, but does little to suggest a context larger than Whitney's limited p.o.v.

By turns pleasant and preposterous, The Greening of Whitney Brown is a reverse Cinderella tale for tweens.

This well-intentioned family film unfortunately comes off as shallow as a prom committee meeting.

Mild tween fare that would have been more at home on the small screen.

The Greening of Whitney Brown is content to be a typical piece of tween rural-versus-urban fluff from the old Hannah Montana: The Movie mold.

This is intended as one of those kid's comeuppance stories, in which a new maturity is won through contact with salt-of-the-earth types and honest labor but is done with an almost total lack of charm.

This saddles-and-sass mash-ups' most telling image is an equine hoof painted electric pink.

A kind of equal opportunity economic hard times cinema proclaiming that Occupy Wall Street attitude is not just for grownups, the movie poses the question: What's a One Percent spoiled tween to do when dumped CEO Dad's credit cards are beyond maxed out.
