What it's about:

The adventures of Ramona Quimby come to life in this all-new film based on the best-selling books by Beverly Cleary. Ramona’s vivid imagination, boundless energy, and accident-prone antics are put to the test when she helps her family face its biggest challenge. Along the way, Ramona must deal with her over-achieving older sister, Beezus.

What the critics thought:

"Parents may also be happy to see a movie for children that doesn’t involve wizards, vampires or action figures that can be bought in the food court."
- Mike Hale, New York Times

"We no longer all watch the same TV shows, we are no longer as innocent, and the world of Klickitat is fading into timeless nostalgia. Ramona and Beezus is a sweet salute."
- Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times

"Honesty about the difficulties, both large and small, of being part of a family is what Ramona and Beezus does best, even if the rough and dangerous edges have been filed down."
- Ian Buckwalter, NPR

A little sister goes a long way.
