If 'Napoleon Dynamite' had had a bigger heart it may have turned out like this sweet and smart comedy about high school misfits.

The filmmaker knows how to gently skew reality just enough to offset the excess cuteness.

It's more appealing than anything Hollywood has recently offered the 8- to 13-year-old female demographic.

There's almost nowhere for such a plot to go that audiences haven't seen countless times before.

Top Critic

A spoonful of sugar, to say nothing of bright pastel colors and friendly bunny rabbits, helps the medicine go down in the sometimes ungainly but often winning prep school comedy Dear Lemon Lima.

Hollywood Reporter
Top Critic

A gifted cast of young actors and a darkly comic outlook make the charming "Dear Lemon Lima" anything but sour.

Audience Reviews for Dear Lemon Lima


Cute coming of age film. Very colorful and pretty to look at with nice little story to it. I got a little bored by the very end, but I am a little older than the target audience. It does have a slightly dark theme so I would think this is for a mid teen rather than a tween.
I liked the young cast and all the hair colours!
