Ramona’s not a naughty kid… She just has a huge imagination.
And she knows how to be Extraordinary — in a special way.
Life is perfect (well, nearly so when you have a teacher who’s stuck on words, a baby sister who spits peas in your face, and a bossy older sister who you makes sure you know the faults in all your plans) –until Ramona’s dad loses his job. Then things start to go downhill. Literally.
Ramona has a million plans to keep the family on Klickitat Street, but her family just doesn’t appreciate them. They will have to move.
So Ramona, with all her marvelous ingenuity, goes into car-washing and selling lemonade — with disastrous effects. Maybe she could be in a tv commercial? Or draw the longest picture in the world? The possibilities are endless.
If only her family would see it that way…
My Rating: 4 1/2 Stars
This is a great family movie, safe and sweet with an ending everyone will love. Adapted from the Beverly Cleary books, the movie caught the heart of Ramona Quimby. It was funny, had an easy flow, and a great story-line. For those who loved the books, you won’t be disappointed. The movie takes snippets of the best moments of Ramona and moulds them together — and makes something worth watching.
Dull moments don’t exist in Ramona and Beezus.
