Nancy's not nearly different enough from other movie girls. And that makes her look more old than fresh.

The Brady Bunch movies were acts of pure contempt and hatred. This is not. It's an act of contempt, all right, but the nostalgia brings a schizophrenic tone to the whole mess.

Although passable, Nancy Drew would feel right at home on the Disney Channel or Nickelodeon, which means the real mystery is how it ended up with a widespread theatrical release.

Relocating with her single father to the land of Hollywood wealth, Nancy Drew just plays as a developmentally stunted version of Veronica Mars.

The new Nancy Drew isn't great but it is fun and, best of all, Emma Roberts breathes lively presence into this classic character.

perfect for a particular audience -- too old for an all-cartoon diet, but still not yet interested in movies about adults

It feels like some Nickelodeon-like teen detective script. In fact, with new character names, this just as easily could have been called Veronica Mars: The Early Years.

An unspectacular mixed bag that tries to straddle two eras with great discomfort and a lot of just plain bad ideas.

The film begins by mocking the validity and relevance of its own source material, but somehow Nancy Drew survives.

I doubt if any female over the age of twelve would get much pleasure from the film.

A modern, kid-friendly action oriented romp.

This is one that's a must-see for tween girls, and which their parents can enjoy if they must.

It's got a lot of fun energy, and it's got a certain kind of inspired loopiness that I found entertaining.

She might as well have stayed in the books.

This Nancy is a throwback, but a charming one, and Roberts (Julia Roberts' niece) plays her with an irresistible sweetness.

Okay, it's not L.A. Confidential, but the story was fine and the time passed quickly--or is that mercifully?

"Nancy Drew" is a real mystery.It's a movie that doesn't know what it wants to be.

Plays like a rejected pilot for the Nickelodeon cable network ... even girls of the right age may find themselves pretty bored by this lame and lifeless production.

Who do they think their audience is? Nancy's many fans rightfully will be insulted by the spoofing, and everyone else will be confused by the uneven tone and start-and-stop plot.
