    Another innocuous film about another unusual girl. show more

    Ramona and Beezus are undeniably cute, and the movie that bears their names tries to inject some timeliness, but what many of us will walk away from this movie thinking about are the hot father figures. show more

    Carrie Rickey Philadelphia Inquirer

    The overall tone of the film is sunny, with Ramona and Beezus resiliently turning life's lemons into lemonade. show more

    It won't change anyone's world, but it'll keep kids happy - and cool - for a couple of hours. show more

    Michael Rechtshaffen The Hollywood Reporter

    While its cast delivers uniformly breezy performances, most everything else about Ramona's move to the multiplex feels unremarkable. show more

    Ian Buckwalter NPR

    The film is too frenetically paced and clean to quite recreate the magic of their source material, but it does often face these issues in the same admirably head-on fashion. show more

    Michelle Orange Movieline

    Straining for a timeless, family-friendly tone, Allen winds up with something closer to an unironically -- i.e. absurdly -- wholesome rehash of "Leave it to Beaver." show more

    Roger Ebert Chicago Sun-Times

    This is a featherweight G-rated comedy of no consequence, except undoubtedly to kids about Ramona's age. show more

    Lou Lumenick New York Post

    Newcomer Joey King is funny and adorable as daydreaming 9-year-old Ramona Quimby. show more

    Washington Post

    Knits together scenes and themes from all eight of Cleary's Ramona Quimby novels into a sweet and funny, if slightly overlong, portrait of life on a modern-day Klickitat Street. show more

    My wife and I enjoyed this movie especially well. We appreciate the moral characters and development of relationships between all the characters. We also enjoyed watching all the silly things Ramona did and how her family reacted. This is the first movie we have wanted to buy in the last 5 years. We wish more movies were this fun, clean, and funny. What?! The parents in this movie actually are good parents! That\'s amazing and is rarely shown in movies these days. Great job!

    Movie was fair and only for 6-10 year old girls. There weren't any boys in the audience where I saw it with my daughter, and I wouldn't imagine any boys being caught dead in a theater showing this movie. Selena Gomez could not save this movie. The critics gave it way too high marks but that is because most of them are paid off anyway. This is a mediocre film for a minimal audience. It is not a family movie.
