The last attempt to mine a cache seemingly bottomless literature between oriented, “Judy Moody and the No Bummer Summer” strives to capture the insouciance of the popular book series by Megan McDonald’s, but reaches beyond its comedic potential. Although McDonald she co-wrote the adaptation, the picture comes out as a romp rather exaggerated antics of the wind, affecting story of a tomboy than 8 years old, could have been. With slight prospects of theater, however, the issue will explode your database name recognition for an extended shelf life to see at home, like a jar of preservative-free gum charged that should have expired, but can not.
Whereas the recent “Beezus and Ramona” and “Diary of a Wimpy Kid” photos managed to replicate some of the best aspects of the books that inspired them, “Judy Moody” has not gone so well. There are obvious similarities and surface, to be sure: Judy Strong of will, as Ramona Quimby and “Wimpy Kid” Greg Heffley, faced with peer pressure, family power struggles and homespun disasters. But McDonald’s peculiar prose and dialogue of a specific nature as evocative cartoons by Peter Reynolds are reinforced by the imagination. On screen, the dialogue as “toad-cool head” feels, well, ridiculous.
Third grade Judy (Australia Jordana Beatty) is a shock of red hair, like moods, cannot be tamed. His younger brother, Stink (Parris Mosteller), is an inexhaustible source of irritation for her, and regularly feel misunderstood. Things get worse when he learns of her alien friends have summer plans (one of the heads of circus camp, and one on Borneo) and their parents will take a trip without it. Enter Judy and stench of Opal crazy aunt (Heather Graham, overdoing it). Although Judy was reluctant to welcome him, Opal Judy helps develop a “letter of emotion” to record their most exciting adventures. Opal’s own dazzling ideas that include the manufacture of hats from the top of paper and paper mache Bigfoot. (Search for Bigfoot is one of the obsessions of the stench.)
To her credit, he smiles and bears Beatty, doing the best they can with the thin material. Similarly, the young Mosteller is a pleasant appearance. But the director John Schultz (“Aliens in the Attic”) goes the route of the cartoon from the beginning, a prominent option for Cynthia Kay Charette design of the production of caramel color and the soundtrack lovingly overzealous Richard Gibbs. Consequently, the process starts to resemble a carnival attraction, not unlike the ill-fated roller-coaster-ride Judy shares with her friend Frank (Preston Bailey). Ultimately, it is difficult to know what is more disconcerting: the fact that the camera never stops moving, or Graham’s forehead barely moves at all.
