When second-graders Bryce and Juli first meet, Juli knows it’s love. Bryce isn’t so sure. In the days and years ahead, Bryce (Callan McAuliffe) does all he can to keep his wannabe girlfriend at arm’s length – and the smart, independent-minded Juli (Madeline Carroll) continues to give him the benefit of the doubt. This tender coming-of-age romantic comedy from director Rob Reiner takes the pair from grade school to junior high, through triumph and disaster, family drama and first love, as they make discoveries that will define who they are – and who they are to each other.]]>

Even the story takes place in 1963 its timeless!I found myself
back to my Jr.High self:)I really loved how the
movie teaches kids to look at people and learn what kind of person someone is!what kind of heart do they have
do they have integrity not just the usual love story where they fall in love based on looks alone.As a mom of daughter
the only criticism of have is when the boys older sister calls his dad a exploitive he slaps her the mom screams and
chases him so you know it wasn't o.k,but the grandfather an 13 year old boy do nothing.:(I would have loved to have
have seen the grandpa yell hay you don't put your hands on a woman!Then say to the boy she shouldn't speak to your
Dad that way but abuse is never a way to earn respect!Slapping a woman's face is abuse not discipline!
Also, the screenwrters pushed it back in time to the late 50's, early 60's. This allowed them to use some really cool 50's/60's music for the background. The music was good, the writing so-so, the movie, overall, could have been a lot better.
The only negative I found with the movie was the inclusion of a few swear words that I felt were uncalled for; the film did not need them to provide realism. Were it not for them, I believe the movie would be perfect. It will become a favorite.
I'd recommend this to: People who enjoyed 'Little Manhattan' and anyone who wants to watch a sweet story about first loves and doing the right thing.
It feels a little cheesy at times, but I think it just adds to the time period and the innocence of the main characters. The way this film follows the main characters made this film stand out in its storytelling methods and really made this a fun film.
Overall I thought it was endearing and great for families.
