Took our 8 year old, 6 year old, 5 year old and two 4 year olds to see it and they all loved it. It was very cute and completely appropriate. Totally recommend it :)

Writer Megan McDonald's series of the popular and award-winning Judy Moody (and Stick) children's books finds its first life as a feature film. Director John Schultz, known for Like Mike and Aliens in the Attic, takes a screenplay by Big and Small scribe Kathy Waugh and Megan McDonald herself to spin onto the silver screen the adventures and misadventures of third-grader Judy Moody and her pals.
Targeted directly at the reader demographic of girls eight to fourteen, Judy Moody and the Not Bummer Summer looks at Judy's super duper rare dare attempt to make her Summer the best ever. Every year, Judy (Jordana Beatty) is forced to go visit her grandma and is bored out of her mind. This year, she creates a thrill points poster for her and her friends Rocky, (Garrett Ryan) Amy (Taylar Hender) and Frank (Preston Bailey) to use as a guide to guarantee that they have an excellent Summer...

This is a great movie for kids about 8 and up. I took my daughter and she really liked it. It is not one I would watch if she wasn't with me. I felt that is was a good choice for her though. No bad language and the content was fine.

LOVED this movie. I have a 9 yr old son and a 4 yr old daughter. It was entertaining and kept the suspense of both children. Cant wait to see if they will come out with a 2nd! I believe any age group as well as both boys and girls would like this movie.

This was a delight to see a family movie that did not have profanity and violence in it.
The acting was good for this type of movie and the graphics we very good. the idea of putting the "day dreaming" portion is an animated setting allowed younger children to understand when she was day dreaming and not actually doing one of the activities.
The aunt that was taking care of them could have put a little more effort in being an adult.
