Flipped by Rob Reiner.  It was such a fantastic and uplifting movie.  DH and I loved it, and I am going to let my 9 year old DD watch it tomorrow. 

 

 

Anyone else see it?

I'm glad to hear it's cute.  I've read the book and your DD might like that too.  It's adorable and told from alternating view points.  Thanks for the review!

Just for a rounded view, here's the commonsensemedia.org review.

I got to go to the red carpet premiere of the movie. The author of the book is local and hosted it and my daughter won tickets in a book review contest. We got to meet the teen stars of the movie and got an autographed copy of the movie version of the book. Very exciting. It's a book that my daughters (9 and 11) and I loved and we though Reiner did a great job staying true to the book.

Cool, Cathe!

 

I rented it this weekend, and my boys really enjoyed it, even thought it's really not their thing (my week to pick the movie).

It's got a real Normal Rockwell/hallmark feel to it, but still engaging.

I agree . . . a nice family movie.
