Consensus: While not without its nostalgic charms, Rob Reiner's sometimes awkward adaptation of Wendelin Van Draanen's childhood novel doesn't reach the heights of the director's earlier work like Stand By Me.

At times, the movie feels like a commercial for Wonder Bread, stretched to feature length.

Reiner, who made the similarly themed The Sure Thing about opposites who repel and attract, is a most sympathetic director of actors.

It's a bit too Wonder Years at times, but the odd two-narrators gimmick plays right into the film's "flip" in structure.

John Hanlon
Big Hollywood

A surprising-engaging and beautifully-told story about young romance.

That Flipped isn't insufferably cute is a measure of its integrity. But it still strains to view the world through the eyes of children without a filter of grown-up cynicism.

John Gholson

Has my heart grown so cold and battle-scarred that I can't allow myself to be completely won over by Flipped, or is Flipped such a load of flavorless mush that there's not enough charm for me to embrace?

Oh Rob Reiner, what happened with you? You can do better than this average nostalgia crap. Bring back some of your edge!
