Judy Moody and the Not Bummer Summer Movie Reviews
User reviews on Judy Moody and the Not Bummer Summer
This is a film for tweens directed by John Schultz and stars Jordana Beatty, Heather Graham and Parris Mosteller. It was probably not the worst thing I have seen in the theaters lately but it is definitely in that category. The storyline is old and unoriginal, the jokes were borderline stupid and only funny for very very young children and the acting, well i do not know if i can call that acting. If you are an adult and you are taking your kids to see this film(i do not know why you would want to do that) I suggest taking your Ipod and a pillow with you, at least you can catch up on your sleep. Overall, I do not recommend seeing this film in the theater.
I can not even tell you how much I hated this film. i had to take my niece to see this and I will never ever do that again. This film is only for 5 year-olds and nobody above that age. I mean, do the makers of the film don’t know that the children come to see these kind of films with adults accompanying them. They obviously know that but they definitely do not care. Visually the film is made to be nauseating and annoying and I seriously had a hard time not leaving. There is absolutely no moral lessons in this mess of the film and i think it just makes kids a little bit dumber. Overall, I beg you not to take your kids to this film.
The film is called Judy Moody and the Not Bummer Summer. Unfortunately, watching it is a bummer. In what passes for live action children's films these days, we get a lot of screaming, overly "hip" kids, toilet humor, some crazy running around, and more screaming. It's summer vacation, and Judy has set up a contest where points are given away for doing fun things. Unfortunately, her friends are going to circus camp and Borneo, so she's going to have to do a lot to make up for staying home. Unfortunately for us, we're in the theater watching this and not at circus camp or in Borneo. We're forced to watch Judy, her aunt Opal (Heather Graham, the only thing I enjoyed looking at onscreen), and her brother Stink run around this overly busy live action cartoon, where everyone speaks like no one you've ever heard of and the fast paced camera and cutting attempt to fool you into thinking this is fun. It's not fun. In fact, it gave me a headache. The young actors are absolutely obnoxious, and it's saying something that the best performance in the film comes from the guy that played Urkel. It's an annoying film that will only be enjoyed if you're in its target demographic.
