July 30, 2010
A heartwarming little film that makes a genuine connection to the joys and trials of childhood.
July 30, 2010
Refreshingly anti-princess and sweet without degrading into sugary, Ramona and Beezus animates Ramona's frequent flights of fancy with DIY-like sequences that literalize, quite charmingly, how a kid colors the world.
July 28, 2010
At over 100 minutes, Ramona and Beezus is a hefty cinematic effort to get through, especially considering how audience-surveyed and clichéd the film proves

The true talent of the cast makes up for the too sweet and cute story line

It's something that you would not be unhappy seeing on television, [but] there's nothing that calls it for you to go see it on the big-screen.
July 24, 2010
A pleasant 1950's old-fashioned family drama that's gentle and adorable.
July 23, 2010
Honesty about the difficulties, both large and small, of being part of a family is what Ramona and Beezus does best, even if the rough and dangerous edges have been filed down.

Allen's direction is bright and imaginative; particularly enjoyable are the movie's occasional flights of fancy.

Joey King will bounce back.

Will enchant the 'tween girl audience for whom it was created.

[Ramona] deserves better treatment, fairer justice, than she gets in Ramona and Beezus, for no other reason than she's the best thing in it: a rambunctious, bright-eyed mighty mouse with a kaleidoscopic wardrobe and an imagination to match.

"Ramona and Beezus" is easily the best family movie of the year, so far.
July 23, 2010
There are so many diversions and subplots, it's hard to get caught up in any single story.
July 23, 2010
Sure, the film's reality may be saccharine, but for a non-computer animated, non-3D kid's film, we'll take it.
July 23, 2010
Ramona and Beezus has enough charm to forgive it an unnecessary foray onto romantic-comedy turf.
July 23, 2010
It's always a challenge for actors to meet the expectations readers have in their heads. These performances offer pleasure throughout.
