Judy Moody and the Not Bummer Summer

Judy Moody (Jordana Beatty) is a restless redheaded third-grader determined to have the best summer ever. But when her best friends go on vacation, she has to find new ways to keep busy. Enter Aunt Opal (Heather Graham), a self-described “guerrilla artist” who watches over Judy and her bratty brother Stink. Together, the trio sets out to score “thrill points” in a game Judy makes up that involves tightropes, roller coasters, and Bigfoot, who's reportedly running loose around town. It takes forever for a plot to develop in this movie (which is based on a book series for kids), and when it finally does, it really doesn't go anywhere. Still, the colorful sets and occasional animated segments give it some life. So it's not a total bummer summer flick.
