Default 'Ramona and Beezus' - High-Def Digest

Our review of 'Ramona and Beezus' has just been posted. This is a fun film that should entertain Beverly Cleary fans and make for a good family movie night. This Blu-ray has fairly strong video and audio and a few interesting extras. Give it a rent.

This is one of "those movies" that even the target demographic (my daughter and her friends) consider the movie as "super lame". Filled with cliche from beginning to the end.

I liked this movie a lot more than I thought I would...mostly because I was a big fan of the Beverly Cleary books as a kid.

The first 15 minutes of the movie worried me a bit, because it comes off as very sugary and lame. Then, I felt the tone of the film really settles down, and it incorporates a lot of themes that adults can care about. In fact, I'm not quite sure there is a specific target demographic for this film. Ramona captures the 5-10 year old audience, Beezus and Henry's storyline capture the tween-teen demographic, Ramona's aunt and her ex-boyfriend capture that 20 something demographic, and the parents' storyline captures the 30+ demographic. Therefore, I felt this film did a great job of being an accessible viewing experience for all ages.
