Only a twisted, seriously sad individual could have a problem with this sunny tween comedy, which I hated.
October 22, 2010
Despite everyone's efforts, Ramona comes across as an insufferably spoilt and attention-seeking little horror.
October 21, 2010
Nothing to frighten the horses, as they say, or interest or entertain them much, either.
October 20, 2010
Fans of the Ramona Quimby books will be disappointed, but tween girls will love it.
August 13, 2010
A film for kids trying far too hard to appeal to their parents.
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

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.

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.

The film tries to appeal to audiences of all ages, and for the most part "reels you in like a sea bass," as Ramona would say.
July 23, 2010
[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.
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.
July 23, 2010
Parents may also be happy to see a movie for children that doesn't involve wizards, vampires or action figures that can be bought in the food court.
July 23, 2010
Successful on its own terms in its refusal to talk down to its pre-teen audience and through the massive future star-power of its talented young stars.
