One of Rob Reiner's greatest gifts to film is his brilliant study of young boys in 1950s America in '80s hit 'Stand By Me.' Reiner revisits the years of his youth again in 'Flipped,' a story about two eight-year-olds feeling the unforgettable sensations of first love in the suburbs. Based on the novel by Wendelin Van Draanen, Madeline Carroll and Callan McAuliffe are Julie and Bryce, neighbors drawn together despite significant differences.

Reiner shows us both points of view -- views we might have wished for as kids wading through the soggy marsh of crushes and heartbreak. 'Flipped' is quality entertainment for kids and it's a heart-tugging walk down memory lane for older folks. Moviefone sat down with the legendary director to discuss his films, his father, and first loves.
