Ramona and Beezus Reviews
07.22.10 by REELZ
Ramona and Beezus is flying under the radar, opening in the wake of Inception and up against Salt this week. Does it deliver to the target tween audience?
"...a featherweight G-rated comedy of no consequence, except undoubtedly to kids about Ramona's age."
— Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
"...easily the most wholesome movie of the summer, but its squeaky-cleanness never comes at the expense of honesty or character."
— Josh Bell, filmcritic.com
"...a sweetened synthesis of stories from the great Beverly Cleary's classic series of kids' books..."
— Lisa Schwarzbaum, Entertainment Weekly
"...a sprightly, generic kidpic..."
— Justin Chang, Variety
"...less Disney than Hallmark Channel, a loose adaptation of Beverly Cleary's first novel in her beloved kid-lit series that's wholesome to the point of being dull."
— Nick Schager, Village Voice
