Adapted from Beverly Cleary's perennially popular book series, Ramona and Beezus stars newcomer Joey King as Ramona Quimby, a grade-schooler with a big imagination. So big, in fact, that she often clashes with her no-nonsense teacher (Sandra Oh). When Ramona's upbeat dad (John Corbett) loses his job, the family -- including her teenage sister, Beezus (Selena Gomez), and their practical-minded mother (Bridget Moynahan) -- must make major adjustments, like dad learning how to run the house. Ramona dreams up various plans to make money so that she can save their house, but because everybody in the family seems too preoccupied to help her with her own worries, she turns to the one person who always has time for her, Aunt Bea (Ginnifer Goodwin). But even Aunt Bea is distracted these days because her ex-boyfriend -- and Quimby family next-door neighbor -- Hobart (Josh Duhamel) keeps trying to win Bea back.~Perry Seibert
This was a really fun movie for me to watch, especially since I remember the Ramona books fondly from childhood. This would be a great movie to watch with kids, either before or after reading any of the books (but especially Ramona and Beezus).
Nice wholesome movie with a great storyline for young ladies. Movies like this are rare in today's world. Refreshing.
I would recommend this to a friend
Rated 4 out of 5 stars
it started out kind of corney with ramona day dreaming or has wild imagination but once they started cutting those parts out the movie actually got better..loved all the characters! i would actually watch it again!
