I turn 40 on June 23rd, so I am old enough to remember the Nancy Drew books that my sister had. The movie is faithful to her character. Nancy is a precocious, mature young teenager with an aptitude for cracking complex cases. The storyline follows a similar pattern to the books: Nancy gets engrossed in a mysterious case, she makes progress, people threaten her, she gets in trouble, etc.

In this particular movie, Nancy and her dad are on business in Los Angeles. They are staying at the former mansion of the late actress Dehlia Draycott, who died under notably mysterious circumstances. Nancy is fascinated by the case and works to resolve it, getting herself and her friends in hot water in the process.

If you've never read a Nancy Drew novel, then watching this movie will remind you of a Murder She Wrote episode geared toward the kids. That's what this movie is in essence (except of course that Nancy is not a writer per se).

The film makers choose to portray Nancy as a girl who likes old fashioned clothes and old fashioned ways, yet she is also contemporary (she owns an ipod and has an Apple notebook).

Some of her peers chide her for being out of touch with the times (think Brady Bunch Movie), but Nancy is secure with herself.

I took some kids from church to the movie today, and they all enjoyed it. My wife liked it, too.

At last- a teenage girl movie where the NICE girl doesn't change into a tramp to fit in! My nieces; ages 12, 13, & 14 LOVED it and I was pleasantly surprised that I liked it too. The clothes were adorable! The kid did a good job as Nancy Drew. I hope they make more movies in this series.

I'm not the harsh critic that others are here. I saw this movie at the theater with my adult sister, adult daughter, and young neice & nephew. All of us enjoyed it. Beforehand, I wasn't sure about Emma Roberts as an actor, but she did a good job.

There just is not enough family-type movies (non-animated), to go see these days. That's why I gave this one a 5-star rating. It was fun to see a haunted house and the variety of locations used. A lot of adventure and ingenuity with Nancy. Interesting characters and good dialogue. I like to see articulate, clever dialogue (does not stoop to swearing & vulgarity to get our attention).

Format: DVD
The best thing about this movie is how it makes a role model out of Nancy Drew, portraying her as smart, refined, polite, having a heart to help people, confident in her convictions and not influenced by peer pressure. This is in comparison to the mean-spirited, superficial, clothes-obsessed Paris Hilton-wannabes in the school she temporarily attends after leaving River Heights for a short stay in L.A. As a whole, the movie is clean, entertaining, even featuring a wholesome relationship between Nancy and beau Ned Nickerson, who is also shown as anything but caught up in the shallowness displayed by Nancy's classmates.

My disappointment: I think the movie would have been perfect if it was a straight Nancy Drew mystery story. The Mean Girls/Brady Bunch Movie fish-out-of-the-water approach just distracts and relegates this movie to just another tween flick, versus something that could have been greater. I read somewhere that something similar was planned for "The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe" movie, with the four Pevensie children transported to L.A. and craving cheeseburgers instead of Turkish Delight. Thank goodness, sanity prevailed, and the producers of the movie decided to be faithful to C.S. Lewis' book. What we have now is a high-grossing Narnia movie that's well-crafted, timeless and appealing to all generations--something that can be watched over and over.

In Warner Brothers' attempts to appeal to a narrow market--tween children who are not avid Nancy Drew readers and who can only be attracted to movies with a modern twist--they miss out on reaching a wider audience: Nancy Drew fans of all ages and generations.

Nancy Drew is one of those iconic heroes kids who read tend to grow up with. I know I shared several of her adventures (read on the sly because I'm a guy) when I was younger. I read the Hardy Boys out in the public eye, along with the adventures of Tom Swift, Jr., Ken Holt, and Rick Brant.

But Nancy's adventures were always somehow more mysterious and more fun. They concentrated on the twists and the turns of the mystery, and the secrets of the suspects that Nancy had to ferret out. Although created by the Edward Stratemeyer Syndicate (as were the Hardy Boys, the Rover Boys, Tom Swift, Sr. and Jr., and the Dana Girls), most of Nancy's adventures were penned by Mildred Wirt Benson. Benson wrote some of the best Nancy Drew mysteries ever printed (23 of the first 25).

The first books came out in 1930, and movies swiftly followed due to public familiarity and interest in seeing the character on the big screen. Four Nancy Drew movies appeared in the late 1930s. In the 1970s, a television series starring Pamela Sue Martin as Nancy Drew came out. THE HARDY BOYS/NANCY DREW MYSTERIES became a hit and ran from 1977 to 1979. Television tried Nancy Drew as a series again in 1995, and a made-for-tv movie with Nancy in college came out in 2002.

Nancy Drew remains a solid sales force in video games. Based on her book adventures, the video games offer players a chance to point and click clues to solve mysteries. So far, 19 video games have come out from Her Interactive Inc. A new game was also made for the Nintendo DS game system.

Making a new movie about Nancy Drew seems almost a no-brainer. Warner Bros., the original studio that made Nancy Drew movies, returned to bring the new movie to life.

When IS this going to be out on DVD?!
Absolutely. Even if there is a delay, for whatever reason, I can't understand why they don't even offer a tentative date for the release.You would think they would at least know when they INTEND to have it available.

ON DVD MARCH 11TH
In this day and age, it is hard to believe that they'd wait this long to cash in. I thought most movies made it to dvd inside of 2 or 3 months nowadays. To delay the release this long......that's right next door to socialism. Anyway, thanks for the information. I think a lot of people have been... Read More
