Ramona and Beezus Blu-Ray + DVD Combo Review

Ramona and Beezus Blu-Ray + DVD Combo Review



Synopsis: Teen sensation Selena Gomez (Hannah Montana, Wizards of Waverly Place) teams up with newcomer Joey King in this delightful coming-of-age comedy based on the best-selling books by Beverly Cleary. Ramona (King) is a little girl with a very big imagination and a nose for mischief. Her playful antics keep everyone in her loving family on their toes, including her older sister Beezus (Gomez), who's just trying to survive her first year of high school. Through all the ups and downs of childhood, Ramona and Beezus learn that anything’s possible when you believe in yourself and rely on each other.

Review: I grew up reading Beverly Cleary books.  I don’t know if all boys did, but I’m a weirdo.  I loved Ramona.  I loved Beezus.  I loved that entire series.  Everything from Ramona to their pal Henry Huggins and her Mouse and the Motorcycle series, Cleary was a literary genius, as far as I’m concerned.

Finally, we get a great film adaptation of the book “Beezus and Ramona” reworked as “Ramona and Beezus.  The film is very sweet and fun and definitely does a great job of portraying the special relationship between a teenaged Beezus and her naughty little third-grader sister Ramona.  Beezus is portrayed by the always lovable Selena Gomez (Wizards of Waverly Place).  The quality of acting and the great feel of the story definitely makes this an enjoyable film.  I recommend it for the entire family!

The Blu-ray + DVD combo gives you a blu-ray for the family and a DVD for the kids to take and watch (and scratch!).

Interest Range: Family films, Beverly Cleary, Selena Gomez
