Product Description

Get ready to score extra thrill points and mega-laughs with this irresistible family comedy based on the best-selling book series! Feisty, fearless Judy Moody 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 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!


Based on the Judy Moody books by Megan McDonald, Judy Moody and the Not Bummer Summer is about a third-grade girl with big ideas for an exciting summer full of dares, scares, and thrills with her three best friends. Judy's carefully crafted plans for a summer-long thrill contest are quickly dashed when she discovers that two of her friends, Rocky and Amy, are going away for the summer, and she'll be left at home with second-best friend Frank Pearl and her brother Stink. Things get even worse when her parents inform her that they're headed to California and are leaving her and Stink under the care of their Aunt Opal, whom Judy's never even met. It turns out that Aunt Opal is far from your average aunt; she's actually pretty cool and she's full of surprises that, when mixed with Judy's natural passion for adventure and action, might just yield some very unexpected results. The film does a good job of preserving the feel and attitude of the Judy Moody character with her frequent flights of fancy, but its brief segments of animation, presumably intended to mirror the cartoonish illustrations that pepper the books, seem somewhat abrupt and awkward. Kids ages 7 to 10 will find laughs and adventure in this 91-minute film, but it's definitely not aimed at older kids or adults, who will find it simply adequate. --Tami Horiuchi

Last Saturday, my son graduated from elementary school- YEAH!. We had an exciting day which included not only the graduation ceremony, but also attending an advance screening of the new kids movie "Judy Moody and the NOT Bummer Summer". This movie is based on the Judy Moody book series by author Megan McDonald.

In the movie, school has just ended and Judy Moody (Jordana Beatty) is determined not to have a boring time this summer like in years past - which included trips for her and her younger brother to visit grandma's house. Judy is a force unto herself in that she dresses in crazy colors, wears pajamas to school and never combs her flaming red hair. Now I don't know how many folks out there remember the 1990's TV show "Blossom" staring Mayim Bialik, but Judy Moody could definitely be the new age version of Blossom - crazy clothes, mood rings and all.

Judy decides that this summer, she and her friends will have a race to see who can have the best summer ever by doing a series of daring challenges that earn "thrill points". Whoever gets to 100 points first wins the title of having the best summer ever.

When Judy's grandma has an accident, Judy's parents leave her and her brother for the whole summer with their crazy gorilla artist Aunt Opal (Heather Graham) who is a grown up version of Judy. But what Judy does not count on is that all her friends are going away for the summer to exciting places like circus camp and swimming with the whales, that her little brother Stink (Parris Mostelleris) is spending the summer looking for Big Foot in the woods by their neighborhood, that her Aunt Opal has no idea how to drive a car, and that her best friend Frank (Preston Bailey) has an inability to do anything exciting without throwing up.

I loved this movie and so did my children. The movie was clean I did not have to worry about any nudity, profanity,it was funny, we cant wait for it to come out in dvd.If you can use your imagination and go with the flow,not be criticle,loosen up, and you too will have fun watching it.I took my son (10) and he wants to see it again, so even though it is a girl flick boys will like it too. I took my daughter (7 1/2) another time and she laughed the whole movie. I guess to each his own.What prompted me to write this is the negitative reviews I read and thinking this is a great movie what are they saying. Any way we loved the movie.

I normally do not like to write reviews for movies or books because everyone has a different opinion as to what is good or not good. The review is subjective for the most part. You can't write what works or doesn't work, or the size, or whatever. Also, my ratings for movies is based on movies as a whole. I mean, Sound of Music to me is a 5+ star movie. There are many other great movies, but when you combine them, another movie might not measure up to Sound of Music, even if it would have been a 5 star on its own.

However........... I will make a rare exception.

This movie, if you combine it only with other children's movies, is a five star movie. And my reasoning is........

It holds the attention of a 3, 4 and 6 year old. Repeatedly!!!!!!! This is an always asked for movie by the 3 year old. I have seen, heard, caught sections of it over and over and yet it never grows old. So that makes it a 5 star in my opinion.

Give me a children's movie that doesn't make me want to bang my head against the wall after seeing it more than a few times, and I'll give it five stars.

This movie is fast paced. It has live action, cartoonish thought bubbles, and music. It has a focus, but moves from scene to scene so it is never slow. It has many funny parts. It's campy, but in a great way.

All of the actors in this movie are perfect!!!!! I could not find fault with one single actor. This gives a lot of credit to the director and the casting staff.

It is good clean wholesome fun. The main character is in the third grade, but this movie does not limit it to certain ages. Yes, a couple of intense scenes involving Bigfoot and dressing up to go to a horror movie. But they are minimal. If a 3 year old could watch it, it's pretty tame. But you have to know your own child.

I wish they would have made a sequel.

I figured this would be another 90-minute nightmare but found it surprisingly tolerable. If directed towards adults it would not receive 5 stars, but as the father of a 4 and 5-yr-old, I can honestly say I've seen this twenty times over the past month. My young son and daughter absolutely adore this movie and would watch it morning, noon, and night if we allowed it. Remarkably enough, I can tolerate it too.

As a parent, I am in continual search of wholesome entertainment for my children. We don't have cable TV and are very strict as to what we let our children view. I feel I'm more lenient than my wife in this regard, but I want to warn would-be buyers in my situation that there is some material you might find objectionable. A child pukes into another's face, a piece of animal poop is accidentally squished into sandwiches and nearly eaten, and the word "crap" is used a couple of time (although one of the children points out that "crap is a swear"). Personally I had no problem with these portrayals but to each their own.

Overall this is a charmingly colorful family film that won't entirely rot your young ones' minds. I found it harmless and entertaining. And hey, if the kids love it, it can't be all bad.
