Product Description

Join Jamie (Kay Panabaker) on her wild adventure as she goes from regular girl to media darling after her journal is accidentally turned in for a writing contest and becomes a best-selling book. Even though she gave fictional names to the nasty popular crowd at school and characterized herself as the very cool "IS" (Danielle Panabaker), Jamie's world spins totally out of control when the truth comes out. With the help of her true friends, she learns some major lessons about the importance of being yourself. Own all the drama and fun in this new Zapped Edition DVD including Jordan Pruitt's never-before-seen music video, a special making-of bonus featurette, exclusive interviews with the cast and more!

A journal is a safe place to record one's innermost thoughts, so imagine Jamie's (Kay Panabaker) horror when her private electronic journal is inadvertently entered in a writing contest and becomes a best-selling book in the Disney Channel Original Movie Read it and Weep. Initial worries about her schoolmates recognizing characters created in their images seem unfounded, but as success and instant fame begin to go to Jamie's head and stress becomes a part of her daily schedule, Jamie's alter-ego "Is" (Danielle Panabaker) becomes increasingly influential, encouraging her to act in disturbing ways that test the bonds of her closest friendships. A slip on a television talk show alerts her classmates to the parallels between themselves and the characters in Jamie's book and suddenly Jamie's newfound fame turns into a cold rebuke that leaves her feeling alone and despised. Can a heartfelt apology and a simple confession of what really transpired salvage Jamie's relationship with her friends and classmates and help her realize the importance of true friendship? Bonus features include a making-of featurette, interviews with sisters Kay and Danielle Panabaker, and the never-before-seen music video "Outside Looking In" by Jordan Pruitt. (Ages 7 to 13) --Tami Horiuchi

A Kid's Review on December 26, 2006
Format: DVD
I am so happy this movie is finally coming out!!!! I read the book last year, How My Private, Personal, Journal Became A Bestseller, the novel based on the movie, Read It And Weep. Personally, I thought the movie was much better than the book. The book was so boring. When I saw the premiere for Read It And Weep on Disney Channel, I was so impressed! Keep it up Disney Channel! Your movies have always been a huge sucesses!!!!!!!

A Kid's Review on January 22, 2007
Format: DVD
I wasnt even going to watch the movie, because the previews to it didnt look interesting. But a night when I was bored the movie just came on, so I watched it. AND I FEEL IN LOVE WITH IT!!!!!! It's actually a really good movie, and it has come to be one of my favorite Disney Channel movies of '06, "Cheetah Girls 2" is the first!!!!

Read It and Weep (2006) tries to package elements of 1996's "Harriet the Spy" into an episode of "Naturally Sadie" and then throws in the standard "teenage girl's upward social mobility causes her to neglect her best friends". This is one of those movies that give film producer's anxiety attacks about their job security. It not only looks good on paper (the book from which it was adapted is excellent) but it is very well executed. Good songs, Kay Panabaker has an effortless charm and does a slick voice-over narration, the acting for the camera direction is excellent (even getting a nice performance from Jason Dolley-which will strike anyone who has seen him on "Corey in the House" as quite an achievement), and the budget was large enough for professional production design.

So why is the whole less than the sum of its parts? And why did this movie fail to generate any real reaction despite an aggressive promotional campaign on the Disney Channel? My guess is that when all is said and done the thing just doesn't have any bite, having had the book's more realistic and controversial elements stripped out for the adaptation. Couple that with the fact that the movie's structure sends the wrong message; heroine Jamie Bartlett is perfectly fine with her celebrity status and unconcerned about blowing off her friends until she overreaches and her new world begins to fall apart. It is not the shallowness of her new world that she finds objectionable but the fact that she has soon alienated everyone she has been trying to impress.

Then there is fact that none (absolutely zero) of the movie's comedy elements are humorous. It's not meant to be a comedy but the producers have clearly inserted stuff (the pizza selections for example) only for their comic qualities.

When I first saw the previews for this movie I thought it would just be another traditional Disneychannel movie- boy, was I wrong!!! This movie is definitely a change of beat for Disneychannel! The entire cast is very talented - ( and as far as I am concerned the Panabaker sisters deserve an award for this one! ) The overall lesson in the movie is to just be yourself- and I think lots more teens need to hear that message! I give this movie 5+ stars!

Overall condition, it was fabulous! The plot/story of the movie was a bit confusing, but it was really good compared to most Disney Channel Movies. I was worried that it wouldn't come on the day we wanted, but it came instantly, and quickly! I give 4 stars because I didn't LOVE the movie, but I enjoyed it.

A Kid's Review on March 15, 2007
Format: DVD
The first time I watched this movie, I thought it was so-so, enjoyable, but not something I'd watch over and over again. Then, when I viewed it later, I couldn't believe that I'd ever thought that. I'd almost be inclined to say this is as good as High School Musical.

Jamie's a regular girl with regular friends and a regular life until her journal accidentally is submitted as an assignment and then gets published. Jamie is thrust into the life of being popular, where she has to deal with staying true to herself and her friends, whilst dealing with the main character of her book, IS, who is an alter-ego of herself.

Sure there are the plot fallacies, without a doubt, but they were minor enough that I was able to overlook them and enjoy the movie. The acting was superb, the facial expressions down to a 'T.' This movie actually reminded me, when I first heard about it, of Harriet the Spy, but it's entirely different and holds a flavor all its own.
