Over the summer, my oldest son had a few movies he hoped to catch in the theater. While we were able to catch two together as a family, the summer quickly went and the fall was here. One of the movies he wanted to watch was Judy Moody and the NOT Bummer Summer. He had seen the trailer on TV and thought that it looked funny-and I thought so too. Here is a synopsis of the movie:
The first film adaptation of the beloved children's book series, JUDY MOODY AND THE NOT BUMMER SUMMER, by Megan McDonald with illustrations by Peter H. Reynolds, is a delightfully, laugh-out-loud hilarious treat for adventure-loving kids, tweens and adults.
Feisty, fearless Judy Moody (Jordana Beatty) 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 (Parris Mosteller) 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!
Our thoughts: My kids loved this movie! It is definitely family-friendly and full of plenty of laughs! It kept our interest throughout the whole movie. At first Judy is so concerned about thrill points, that she doesn't realize all of the adventures she is having throughout the summer. And I love how in the end, she ends up pairing up with her brother to have the ultimate adventure of her summer! Full of silliness-my boys really enjoyed this movie!
