- Rating: 5 out of 5 starsIt was pretty funny. However, this movie is only for girls because it’s about a young girl and her friends going through all of the body changes that us women go through.
- Rating: 3.5 out of 5 starsGreat story and great characters and the development it follows; it might seem like it might be a religious movie based on the title and the first major scene that starts the movie off, but really, its about average pre-teens making it through their life and learning lessons and realizing the small truths of themselves.
- Rating: 5 out of 5 starsReally good movie with an amazing cast.
- Rating: 0.5 out of 5 starsI wish someone would have explained on this site that this movie is meant for 12 year old girls. I only stayed after the first half hour to see where the movie was going because it got such good reviews, it went nowhere at all. For me it wasn't interesting, funny, intriguing, mysterious or whatever those things are that make a movie entertaining. Worse movie I think I ever sat through.
- Rating: 5 out of 5 starsNot a man's movie but every woman in the theater related to it brings you back to that time in your life and what you go through.
- Rating: 5 out of 5 starsRyder Fortston and Graham gave an oscar level performance. Being a teenage actor on the big screen is hard enough, but the level of skill they have appeared they had been doing this for decades. This movie perfectly encapsulates all the emotions, experiences, and nuance to middle school girlhood.
- Rating: 5 out of 5 starsWow. Need to watch movie. Judy Bloom never fails, classic in modern day youth.
- Rating: 5 out of 5 starsI was 13 in 1973 and they did such a great job of realistically portraying going through adolescence at that time. A great mix of humor and thoughtful moments. It stays very true to the beloved book as well.
- Rating: 5 out of 5 starsLoved it! Stayed true to the book and the POV. Refreshing to see a movie about preteens actually played by actors who look, act, and talk like preteens. Funny, sweet, and real; terrific acting all around. Girls of today who didn't like the book may still like the movie. Now if they'd only make "Starring Sally J. Friedman as Herself" next!
- Rating: 5 out of 5 starsFantastic film, funny, magical. Abby Ryder Fortson is terrific, this is the sort of acting that should win an oscar, totally believable, so much being conveyed by tiny changes in her face. All the others are brilliant too, all in all a bright shining gem of a movie.
