Judy Moody and the NOT Bummer Summer
     2011-June-29  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

儿童文学改编:《朱迪之夏》

The film is based on a popular* children's book series with a reported 13 million copies in print worldwide. The film may interest children around 10 years old, but people may be bored if they are older than 10.

The film records the adventures* of third-grader Judy Moody, who is played by Australian newcomer Jordana Beatty. Judy decides to have a "mega-cool" summer with the help of younger brother Stink (Parris Mosteller) and her free-spirit* Aunt Opal (Heather Graham).

Before the summer holiday, Judy and the fellow members of the TP (stands for "Toad Pee*") Club, Rocky (Garrett Ryan), Frank (Preston Bailey), and Amy (Taylor Hender) are making plans for it. They give themselves a contest*, collecting "thrill* points," and basically avoiding boredom*.

It also means hiding away from Bigfoot-obsessed* Stink. But two of her friends have other plans -- clown camp and a trip to Borneo*. When Aunt Opal shows up to babysit*, Judy learns a valuable lesson -- Summer doesn't owe* you a good time. Summer is what you make it.

There is little story here. Mostly the film progresses in a series of slapsticky* episodes that feature chases, a tightrope walk, hunts for Big Foot, horror costumes* and much junk food*.

Sometimes digital cartoons or on-screen graphics are used.

The film directed by John Schultz ("Like Mike," "Aliens in the Attic") wants to put on screen the sense of random play and concentrated* games that fill a child's world for a few summers. In this it succeeds, but the film does not welcome others who might still keep memories of those NOT bummer* summers.

Tech credits are solid. As for the performances, all the kids are good.
