Ramona and Beezus Coming to Theaters July 23

Yesterday my family and I were invited to go see an early viewing of Ramona and Beezus.  After reading all of the books and watching some of the trailers for the movie, I have to say that I was really worried that the movie would be completely different from the books.  First off, this post will not contain any spoilers so feel free to read this review! 

First, I think that the acting was great, you could really tell that the actors were very in touch with their characters, especially Ramona!  Second, for anyone who doesn’t know, this movie is pretty much all of the books scrunched into one movie, and they did a great job taking small and large parts from each book.  There were also many jokes that only true fans would understand because they were taken from the books and not fully explained in the movie. 

Some might think that this movie is a simple comedy but it is so much more than that.  It is a coming of age story for both Ramona and Beezus as they both have to tackle the hardships that adult life throws at them (Ok, for this part my brother helped J).  All in all, I really liked the movie and I’m glad to say that this movie isn’t only for kids or fans of the series.  It is really a fantastic movie with a deep message.
