Movie Info

The adventures of young Ramona Quimby (newcomer Joey King) and her big sister Beezus (Selena Gomez) come to life in this all new film based on the best-selling books (over 30 million...and counting) by Beverly Cleary. Ramona's vivid imagination, boundless energy, and accident-prone antics keep everyone she meets on their toes. But her irrepressible sense of fun, adventure and mischief come in handy when she puts her mind to helping save her family's home. John Corbett (My Big Fat Greek Wedding) and Bridget Moynahan (I, Robot) also star as Ramona and Beezus' parents, Robert and Dorothy Quimby, while Ginnifer Goodwin (He's Just Not That Into You) portrays the girls' Aunt Bea, opposite Josh Duhamel (Transformers) as Bea's former flame, Hobart. Sandra Oh (Grey's Anatomy) plays Ramona's third grade teacher, Mrs. Meacham. Elizabeth Allen (Aquamarine) directs from a screenplay by Laurie Craig and Nick Pustay. Denise Di Novi and Alison Greenspan produce for Fox 2000 Pictures and Walden Media. The cinematographer is John Bailey, ASC; Brent Thomas is the production designer; and Jane Moran is the editor. Co-producer is Brad Van Arragon. Music is by Mark Mothersbaugh, and the music supervisor is Julia Michels. -- (C) 20th Century Fox

Audience Reviews for Ramona and Beezus

  • Dec 02, 2011
    I really enjoyed this movie surprisingly. It wasn't funny, cute, or cool, but it was good. The acting was made completely for kids and hollywood, but the movie IS for kids and hollywood so it didn'tbother me. The plot was very good in my opinion because it dealt with real life issues and how children percieve it. Its not a must see, but its a nice film.

    Though forgettable and somewhat predictable, Ramona and Beezus manages to mostly refrain from resorting to potty-humor and slapstick antics to entertain its audience and stays a healthy step above your average kid-pic because of this.

    I never read the books as a kid, but I thought the movie was cute, funny, and full of heart.
