I expected more from Rob Reiner.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5
January 5, 2013
A surprising-engaging and beautifully-told story about young romance.
Full Review | Original Score: 5.0/5

Has my heart grown so cold and battle-scarred that I can't allow myself to be completely won over by Flipped, or is Flipped such a load of flavorless mush that there's not enough charm for me to embrace?

At times, the movie feels like a commercial for Wonder Bread, stretched to feature length.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4
January 11, 2011
The importance of understanding varying perspectives is always worth communicating, and Flipped, despite its cloying approach, manages to deliver this idea with a decent amount of sincerity intact.
Full Review | Original Score: 6/10
November 26, 2010
If the feature doesn't latch on to the senses immediately with its sugared claws, it's a long, ugly 85 minutes of dreadful behavior to endure, waiting for an ending that never arrives.
Full Review | Original Score: D

I suppose some people may respond to this nostalgic ode to innocence and chastity, but I found it insufferable.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/4
November 21, 2010
...if you want a wholesome, ultimately feel-good film about young love, this might be it. Or not.
Full Review | Original Score: 5/10
October 25, 2010
Not perfect, but its aspirations are admirable, and its execution is surprisingly effective considering (or maybe because of) its unadulterated sentimentality.
Full Review | Original Score: B+
October 8, 2010
The movie feels static, like a diorama of ?60s life rather than a living, breathing story.

Rob Reiner seems to be aiming for a boomer audience, but it's a relentless exercise in nostalgia -- clothes, hair styles, cars, and doo-wop soundtrack -- that feels manipulative.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
September 23, 2010
You'll flip for this gentle, clever movie. You are hereby forgiven for "North," Mr. Reiner.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/4
September 20, 2010
Perfectly innocent, unexpectedly charming.
September 17, 2010
...takes what could have been a charming coming-of-age story and buries it beneath layers of cinematic overkill that push you away from the film when they should be drawing you in.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/10
September 13, 2010
Flipped is Rob Reiner's best film in 18 years.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/4
September 10, 2010
The latest from director Rob Reiner is a well-meaning mess that wants to tap into universal experiences of childhood and first love but bogs down in squirm-inducing banalities.

The kids provide an earnest emotional through line to a tiny story, and I sort of hope it kicks off a new mature period for Reiner as a filmmaker.
Full Review | Original Score: B
September 10, 2010
It makes sense that Flipped is based on a book, because what it has going for it is a charm -- the pleasure of hanging out with likable characters -- that the movies don't have much time for lately.

Flipped is as phony as a poodle-skirted waitress at a mall diner, yet it's as sweet as a malt. A vanilla one.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4
September 9, 2010
Reiner was clearly sick the day they taught filmmaking at film school-you show, not tell the audience what's going on. What at first seems sort of clever quickly turns into an exercise in exasperating tedium.
