If you are looking for a fun movie for the entire family then you should check out the movie Ramona and Beezus staring Joey King, Selena Gomez and many other actors and actresses. This weekend we watched this movie as part of our girls night in. Some may watch this movie because actress Selena Gomez is in it and honestly that was the main reason I thought about watching it. Though you will be pleasantly surprised by Joey King who plays Ramona in the movie. Ramona clearly the start of the movie is totally adorable and shows that being different and unique may be hard, but it is well worth it.
The movie takes you through the life of an average middle class family and the trials and tribulations that go along with it. Romona is a lively and fun character and she brings a bit of sparkle into everything that she does. With Ramonas over active imagination she takes you through her life and makes you think about your own life with a little bit more colour. Though you can not but feel sorry for Ramona as her heart is always in the right place nothing ever seems to work out for her and she gets in trouble more then most children. I could not help but think back to my years of being the younger sister who is always a pest no matter what. I was clearly a pain to my older sister so I could relate fully to Ramona in many ways.
The movie is based on the Ramona series of novels from Beverly Cleary and similar to many books made into movies you will definitely want to read the books to get more details out of the life of Ramona Quimby. There is so much information in the movies that at times it does feel there is a lot going on, but reality is life does have a lot going on at once. The books would be a great read for children so if looking for a gift for a child grade 3 definitely check out the series!
My girls loved the movie so much that instead of cartoons the next morning we watched the movie again. It is a fun movie that the whole family will enjoy! It is appropriate for all ages and a great wholesome movie to enjoy all together!
