October 3, 2018
Though told in a somewhat cutesy, sock-hop style, Flipped works well as a film about character that entertains the tween/teen set without preaching at them.
January 5, 2013
A surprising-engaging and beautifully-told story about young romance.
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.

Not perfect, but its aspirations are admirable, and its execution is surprisingly effective considering (or maybe because of) its unadulterated sentimentality.

You'll flip for this gentle, clever movie. You are hereby forgiven for "North," Mr. Reiner.
September 20, 2010
Perfectly innocent, unexpectedly charming.
September 13, 2010
Flipped is Rob Reiner's best film in 18 years.
September 10, 2010
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.
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.
September 9, 2010
Reiner, who made the similarly themed The Sure Thing about opposites who repel and attract, is a most sympathetic director of actors.
September 8, 2010
It's a bit too Wonder Years at times, but the odd two-narrators gimmick plays right into the film's "flip" in structure.
September 7, 2010
[C]harming little coming-of-age teen romance... It's [a shame that] a lovely movie that's truly suitable for the whole family cannot find an audience in the current movie environment.
September 5, 2010
A remarkable family film that accomplishes something rare: It catches its young protagonists in the act of growing up, of beginning to learn who they are.
August 29, 2010
...an utterly charming coming-of-age movie that deserves to be widely seen instead of dumped into the end-of-summer wasteland.
August 29, 2010
Though larded with voice-over narration by its early-'60s-era adolescent protagonist, Rob Reiner's wholesome movie of teen romance gels into a sturdy drama.
August 29, 2010
We all remember the days when the smallest act of kindness or meanness changed everything and, thanks to two very strong central performances, Flipped captures the essence of those times in a gentle, sentimental romance.
August 27, 2010
You won't find two better youthful actors directed by a comic genius in any other film this summer.
August 27, 2010
Reiner has given this generation of moviegoers a peek at a simpler time, an era in American history that was innocent, yet on the verge of losing that innocence.
August 27, 2010
A wholesome, genuinely heartfelt, sweet and uplifting story that everyone, young and old, can easily fall in love with.
