USA TodayFull Review Below Average Judy Moody and the Not Bummer Summer is bound to put you in a bum mood.
Washington PostFull Review Below Average Some may question why the studios would release such a mediocre, uninspired kid movie just when school lets out. But if nothing else, 'Judy Moody' offers parents an excuse to nap in air-conditioned comfort.

OPINION OVERVIEW The following is the original "What's Worth
Watching" write-up for this movie.
Based on a theater exit polling of 54 moviegoers:
CHILDREN:Three-quarters of the kids LOVED "JUDY MOODY." About twenty percent only rated it as "Good/Average," but that's still a good review because many kids don't really understand the difference between Fantastic and Good. No one said they didn't like it and that's what counts the most.
TEENS:Five of the seven females enjoyed it very much with most loving it. Two were somewhat disappointed.
TWENTYSOMETHINGS:Not really enough reviews in this group to be of any help.
ADULTS:Just over half of the ladies enjoyed "Judy Moody" very much with many loving it. Unfortunately, the remaining half only rated it as average and below average, which is disappointing. As for the males, they could probably skip this movie. However, if your tween wanted to see it, you're not going to hate it.
This summer, 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, Amy is headed off to Borneo with
her mom to save a lost tribe and Judy is stuck 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!
