  • The mystery of Nancy Drew' is how a movie can get so many things right -- particularly the inspired casting of Emma Roberts as the spunky teenage sleuth -- yet ultimately disappoint. show more

  • Nancy Drew is 16, dresses like she's 12 and acts like she's about 45. And therein lies the problem with this adaptation of the beloved book series. The movie can't quite decide how old it wants to be -- or who it's for. show more

  • What's not to like about a girl detective who is a good citizen and better student, a leader rather than a follower, a resourceful seamstress who won't cut her clothes to fit this year's fashions? show more

    I just saw this movie, and I have to say it's fantastic. Kate sparkles with kindness and fills your heart with the hope of going on another day because you just never know what's in store for you just over and around for tomorrow. Cameron melts into a sweetness that makes us fall for her, and Jude I think, it's the best role that I have ever seen him in ever. Even fell for Jack Black. He wonderful in this film. I give it a A.

    when machine head came out with burn my eyes, i was amazed. but later, the got on a diffrent trail and came up with the not so good supercharger. soon, machine head made through the ashes of the empires and started to sound more like how they debued. finally, they made the blackening. with songs like aesthetics of hate, and halo,machine head sounds better than ever!

    We loved it! Great inspiration for our daughters and we over 40s had no complaints either. It was fun and adorable.
