Critic Consensus: If Ramona and Beezus fails to capture the essence of its classic source material, it's sunny, sweet, and wholesome.

Critic Reviews for Ramona and Beezus
It's something that you would not be unhappy seeing on television, [but] there's nothing that calls it for you to go see it on the big-screen.
Honesty about the difficulties, both large and small, of being part of a family is what Ramona and Beezus does best, even if the rough and dangerous edges have been filed down.
Allen's direction is bright and imaginative; particularly enjoyable are the movie's occasional flights of fancy.
The film tries to appeal to audiences of all ages, and for the most part "reels you in like a sea bass," as Ramona would say.
[Ramona] deserves better treatment, fairer justice, than she gets in Ramona and Beezus, for no other reason than she's the best thing in it: a rambunctious, bright-eyed mighty mouse with a kaleidoscopic wardrobe and an imagination to match.
Audience Reviews for Ramona and Beezus
A really cute, completely harmless, and often amusing family movie. I wish less of the story was focused on the adult characters (the Ginnifer Goodwin and Josh Duhamel storyline almost put me to sleep) and more time was spent with the adorable Ramona (Joey King, who absolutely steals the movie) and the charming Beezus (Selena Gomez, who hopefully has a great movie career ahead of her), but honestly, there's not much about Ramona and Beezus that I didn't like. Anyone with fond memories of reading Beverly Cleary books as a kid or who wants to share the on-screen versions of the characters with their children will enjoy this. Ramona and Beezus is the rare kind of completely inoffensive family-oriented film that escapes blandess and boredom and leaves you with a grin on your face, despite all the sugary sweetness.
Deeeelightful! Funny! Charming! Sweet! Good for everyone, young and old!
A Little Sister Goes A Long Way. Very nice family film with very imaginative stuff and some real life problems everyone faces these days. Very clever story and fun for all ages. Watch it with your kids. Adapted from Beverly Cleary's perennially popular book series, Ramona and Beezus stars newcomer Joey King as Ramona Quimby, a grade-schooler with a big imagination. So big, in fact, that she often clashes with her no-nonsense teacher (Sandra Oh). When Ramona's upbeat dad (John Corbett) loses his job, the family including her teenage sister, Beezus (Selena Gomez), and their practical-minded mother (Bridget Moynahan) must make major adjustments, like dad learning how to run the house. Ramona dreams up various plans to make money so that she can save their house, but because everybody in the family seems too preoccupied to help her with her own worries, she turns to the one person who always has time for her, Aunt Bea (Ginnifer Goodwin). But even Aunt Bea is distracted these days because her ex-boyfriend and Quimby family next-door neighbor Hobart (Josh Duhamel) keeps trying to win Bea back.
