Mini Movie Reviews: Judy Moody and the Not Bummer Summer & Jack and Jill

When her best-laid plans for a summer full of fun go comically awry, an imaginative young girl creates her own vacation adventures in Judy Moody and the NOT Bummer Summer. Based on the beloved, bestselling book series by Megan McDonald, Judy Moody and the NOT Bummer Summer is an irresistible and delightfully funny treat for adventure-loving kids and adults. This summer, third grader Judy Moody is planning the most super-duper, double-rare summer vacation ever with best friends Rocky and Amy. Except that it turns out Rocky is going to circus camp to learn to tame lions, and Amy is headed off to Borneo with her mom to save a lost tribe while Judy stays home with her pesky little brother Stink and second-best friend Frank Pearl. Just when she thinks things are as rotten as they can be, her parents announce that they will be going to California and Judy will have to stay behind with her Aunt Opal, who she's never even met! It looks like Judy's best summer ever has just become her way worst summer ever. But feisty, fearless and ever-funny Judy Moody never gives up! With help from some unexpected sources, she's headed for a summer full of surprises in this charming and spirited family film. Get ready, get set, get MOODY!

REVIEW: Classic kids movie with lots of laugh and adventure for the kids. I can describe the movie simple by how colorful is it. You see the poster? There is a mess of colors in the movie too, and it's giving it such a happy feeling! Plus the adventures Moody has at her summer, which are simple old adventures of kids spending their summers out and not at videogames and stuff, might be good inspiration of the kids of our days. A movie definitely fun for the smaller kiddohs, and if you are child enough inside you, you will probably enjoy it too ^.^

 Jack Sadelstein is a successful advertising executive in Los Angeles with a beautiful wife and kids, who dreads one event each year: the Thanksgiving visit of his identical twin sister Jill. Jill's neediness and passive-aggressiveness is maddening to Jack, turning his normally tranquil life upside down.

Even though the movie is not that good, i must have seen it over 2 times. I mean it's not one of Sandler's best, but it has some good jokes from time to time. Of course it's a little too much, but Sandler is really funny as a woman. Though, i can totally relate with him being annoyed by her, i also loved how much he cared about her and tried to make her happy (sometimes!). Not the best comedy out there, but quite entertaining for a night with friends. Mention: I really disliked Al Pacino in the movie. I don't even understand why he accepted to be part of this.


  1. Jack and Jill looks so bad it's probably a career ender for Adam Sandler.

    1. Haha..i know what you mean. We will see in the next two years. He has like 3-4 movies i think to come out.


There is lot of spam lately at the posts, so for a while i will put up the comment moderation. Sorry for that, i really don't like it but i thought it might stop the spamming. It will be down soon enough! Thanks a lot :)
