Consensus: If Ramona and Beezus fails to capture the essence of its classic source material, it's sunny, sweet, and wholesome.

It's something that you would not be unhappy seeing on television, [but] there's nothing that calls it for you to go see it on the big-screen.

Just try not to smile as you watch the imaginative misfit Ramona make classic childhood mistakes in this ebullient adaptation of Beverly Cleary's timeless series.

Honesty about the difficulties, both large and small, of being part of a family is what Ramona and Beezus does best, even if the rough and dangerous edges have been filed down.

The film tries to appeal to audiences of all ages, and for the most part "reels you in like a sea bass," as Ramona would say.

Allen's direction is bright and imaginative; particularly enjoyable are the movie's occasional flights of fancy.

Ramona and Beezus is a really cute movie - almost sickeningly so. Everybody looks like they stepped out of a J. Crew catalogue or something.
