  • But who cares what grumpy old grown-ups think? This reviewer watched with two movie-loving kids, and they did each laugh. Twice. show more

  • A sweet, if predictable, kids' comedy. But you have to overlook the conveniently inconsistent behavior of all the characters - except in Garner's case. She never establishes a character. show more

  • Just another loud, boy-centric comedy aimed at ’tweens. The movie turns a slight children’s book — in this case, Judith Viorst’s 1972 fave, from which it takes mainly the title — into a charmless mishmash. show more

    Walked out after 20 minutes. Cookie-cutter inane unless you are under 6 years old.

    Thought it was a pretty decent movie. If it were not for the speed reading script at the beginning of the movie I would have rated it higher. I almost walked out. The daughter was on my nerves quick. But once her script called for her to be sick her speech got better and slower and she got better. But I really did not like her. She drug the movie down for my part. I know that may sound weird to some of you but one character done wrong can ruin a movie. So I give it 3.5 stars. But the movie counter attendant is so beautiful. I had to go to the other one because I feel like I may drool at times. But she is real sweet. You dont see that much these days.
