We took our own little Ramona and Beezus to watch this movie on Sunday. (It was $1 popcorn and soda day!). The girls and I have been reading the books are I honestly wasn't expecting the movie to come close. I was wrong. It was much better than I was anticipating. Cute story, good cast, plenty of humor, kid appropriate and frankly who doesn't love a little Josh Duhamel eye candy! The girls are excited to keep reading and they are hoping for a sequel.
