Audience Reviews for Read It and Weep

  • Sep 18, 2009
    <b>Read It and Weep</b> tries to package elements of 1996's <b>Harriet the Spy</b> into an episode of <b>Naturally Sadie</b> and then throws in the standard "teenage girl's upward social mobility causes her to neglect her best friends". This is one of those movies that give film producer's anxiety attacks about their job security. It not only looks good on paper but it is very well executed. Good songs, <i>Kay Panabaker</i> has an effortless charm and does a slick voice-over narration, the acting for the camera direction is excellent and the budget was large enough for professional production design. But, there is fact that none of the movie's comedy elements are humorous. It's not meant to be a comedy but the producers have clearly inserted stuff only for their comic qualities. Unfortunately none of this stuff is even remotely funny. Finally there is the whole imaginary alter ego thing, a character who pops in and out of countless scenes as a kind of counterpoint to the voice-over commentary. Ultimately this adds nothing to the story and the repositioning of the character with each sentence is genuinely irritating. <b>Read It and Weep</b> premise needs a better treatment but the movie should still be enjoyable for many in the middle school crowd, especially if they are crushing on one or more of the actors. There is little that is worth the interest and attention of younger or older viewers.

    Cheesey teeniebopper movie, but still cute.

    This is one movie that had so much potential it just falls flat on its' face. Boring and dull with very little character development. Every teenage girl's worst nightmare comes true in this film. What if your own personal diary is seen by millions. Yup it happens here, and to be frank the outcome is expected. Friends get hurt our protagonist is placed in one of those life choices, and the family needs a bit of saving. Yawn. I mentioned weak character development and that's no lie. Characters develop to their full potential within 10 minutes and just hang around getting paid by Disney execs, Not one on the better family movies created, but certainly not the worst. If I knew what was expected from this movie and eatting liver I would go with the latter.
