Ramona and Beezus Reviews

June 13, 2018
In stepping back and viewing it not as a super-faithful adaptation, but as entertainment aimed primarily at young girls, there is certainly something to be celebrated here...

Just try not to smile as you watch the imaginative misfit Ramona make classic childhood mistakes in this ebullient adaptation of Beverly Cleary's timeless series.

...an affable yet forgettable little comedy...

Very entertaining and even heartbreaking in some moments...

Captures the spirit of the Beverly Cleary books and offers a Ramona who's a believable combination of mischief and innocence.

Only a twisted, seriously sad individual could have a problem with this sunny tween comedy, which I hated.

This sitcom-bright film doesn't come close to the quality of the Beverly Cleary book series, but it's a sweet, frequently charming effort that doesn't betray its G rating.

Despite everyone's efforts, Ramona comes across as an insufferably spoilt and attention-seeking little horror.
October 21, 2010
Performances are perfectly pleasant, but more of Ramona's flights of fancy and less lingering on the adult romance would've added some oomph.

Nothing to frighten the horses, as they say, or interest or entertain them much, either.

True, it's just a bit overlong for junior attention spans, but given that the boys get lots of movies with wizards and special effects, little girls will surely welcome a film that seems tailored just for them.

Fans of the Ramona Quimby books will be disappointed, but tween girls will love it.

The best live action children's film since Nanny McPhee 2.

This is an almost quaint throwback of a kids' movie that ends up enjoyably ragtag and cluttered, all of it contained by an emphasis on neighbourhood and maturity. Realistic, refreshing, and reassuring.

A film for kids trying far too hard to appeal to their parents.

This movie understands how to get into the head of a little kid. Plus, there's a little romance for the parents as well.

A pleasant way to pass some time and be made happy and sad by little things that are well-observed.
