Default 'Flipped' - HIgh-Def Digest Review

David Krauss has reviewed 'Flipped.'

Great disc. 4.5 star movie. 4.5 star video. 4 star audio.

Please read this review and check out the film. This movie deserves an audience.

I was completely surprised by this film. I wholly expected to watch the first few minutes to check it out and next thing I knew it was over. Not a genre I generally pay attention to anymore (ironically Stand by Me was probably the last one I did pay much attention to), but this film set it's hooks in.

David really did well with his comment regarding small yet real moments, made me think of the eggs....

Nice review, David. I was really pleasantly surprised when I watched this.

Happy Birthday David!

Your review of flipped is spot on as well. I found this to be a very good family film, full of real life moments. I'm not sure if I would rate it above 4 stars though, simply because of the abrupt ending...and the fact that it doesn't quite live up to the standards set by "Stand By Me."

I still highly recommend this movie though. Its the best family film I've seen since "Bridge to Terabithia."

Cooltobeyou, thanks for the comments! My enthusiasm may have slightly inflated my rating, but rarely do I get so jazzed about a film of this sort, so I want people to take note and give it a try.

And thanks for the birthday wishes!! Appreciate it!! (Thanks to you, too, Aaron!!)

Yeah, hopefully your review score will convince more people to give this movie a shot. Even though I don't rate this movie higher than a 4, I definitely could see other people giving this a 4.5 or 5.
