Consensus: Emma Roberts is bubbly and charming as Nancy Drew, the junior detective. But despite her best efforts, Nancy Drew still lacks excitement, surprise, and compelling secondary characters.

Anna Smith
Time Out

'Nancy Drew' still has a televisual feel - more 'Murder, She Wrote' than junior 'Marple'.

It's got a lot of fun energy, and it's got a certain kind of inspired loopiness that I found entertaining.

Prairie Miller

A great coming of age girl movie that prioritzes teen personality and brain power over female body appeal.

It's one of the few tween movies that isn't in your face; its limpness becomes appealing.

This Nancy is a throwback, but a charming one, and Roberts (Julia Roberts' niece) plays her with an irresistible sweetness.

I doubt if any female over the age of twelve would get much pleasure from the film.

Once the rote mystery elements take over, the film devolves into a second-rate whodunit for kids, but even then, Roberts' irrepressible cheeriness and curiosity in the face of danger proves too adorable to resist.

For adults, there are some pleasures to be found here and there, but parents won't be blown away by it the way their daughters will.

A childish movie. Has all the normal Nancy Drew clichés, but does not transfer well to the 21st century.
Dead Angel
It's lame and boring. I liked reading the book version more.

A great film for intelligent pre-teen girls but anyone out of that audience range won't find much to like about this. Roberts gives a good performance, but… More

Nancy Drew is an embarassment to mystery films and may be fine for small girls, but not for me.

I was sick, it was a Sunday, it was on tv. Isn't really a guy movie, but you've probably already guessed that. To put it simply; it was far fetched,… More
