Judy Moody and the Not So Bummer Summer Review

My kids love watching movies in their past time.  It's one of the ways we have our family time.  Recently, I had the chance to review Judy Moody and The Not Bummer Summer movie on DVD.  I thought I'd give it a try, mainly for my youngest son.

Heres' a little bit about the movie:

The first film adaptation of the beloved children's book series, JUDY MOODY AND THE NOT BUMMER SUMMER, by Megan McDonald with illustrations by Peter H. Reynolds, is a delightfully, laugh-out-loud hilarious treat for adventure-loving kids, tweens and adults.

Feisty, fearless Judy Moody (Jordana Beatty) is looking forward to the most super-duper, double-rare summer vacation ever. The trouble is, her parents are called out of town and her BFFs are going away with their own families. That leaves Judy trapped at home with her pesky brother Stink (Parris Mosteller) under the watchful eye of Aunt Opal (Heather Graham). But with a little playful planning-and a lot of imagination-Judy turns a snoresville summer into the way-not-boring adventure of a lifetime!

Our thoughts:

My daughter - who is grown now, just loves these kids of movies.  Sometimes, I think she's a kid trapped in a "big girl body". She however, thought it was kinda goofy.

My teenage son just looked at me strange when I asked him if he planned on watching it.  I guess that's a no.

When I asked the youngest what he thought of it.  He said "It was silly. Child like".  Who's he kidding?  He's just ten!  I guess that's his way of saying that he didn't care for it.  He did however take notice that he actually had a Judy Moody book in his library.  Maybe he'll read it someday. 

I thought it was pretty goofy too.  But hey, kids are goofy.  So if you've got goofy little ones at home, maybe they get a kick out of all Judy Moody's shenanigans.  If not, maybe this movie isn't for you.

Disclosure: I received this movie in exchange for my honest opinion.



  1. My oldest daughter likes these movies as well and we enjoy watching them together. The younger kids are really getting into them as well.

  2. I thought my youngest would like it, but he's a action adventure type of guy.


Holla at your girl!
