Consensus: Entertaining for some very young viewers, but for those with normal attention spans, Judy Moody is loud hyperactive overload.

Too bad, then, that there's no real joy in all the physical business filling the screen, not even in Judy's animated daydreams. Bummer.

The best thing about Judy Moody and the Not Bummer Summer is the engaging performance of red-haired Aussie starlet Beatty, who will play the titular star in Eloise in Paris. We can only hope that film sticks to the book.

With summer comes theaters filled with superheroes, sequels and forgettable family fare. In the last category, we find "Judy Moody."

Mild-mannered, kid friendly. Not much there for adults. Except for Heather Graham...

Fun must be won, earned, dominated - it is only through competition that we Moodists may demonstrate our true worth to the fearless leader and her spastic cause.
