Ramona and Beezus

I went to another movie alone today and loved every second of it.

This time I saw Ramona and Beezus.

When I was little, I was an avid Ramona reader. (and by "little" I may or may not mean my entire life.) The stories of Ramona's crazy antics and active imagination just make me happy.

My mom's word of warning going into it was "don't cry."

She knows me so well... Hey, I made it a full hour before I cried! But from then on, I was kind of a wreck.

Though the movie is only an hour and 45 minutes, and only covers a couple of months in the life of the Quimby family, they did a great job of fitting in all the classic Ramona stories. There were also some awesome but subtle references to other events from the books.

The soundtrack was excellent.
I even like Selena Gomez. Shocker, I know.

I loved it. I'll buy it when it comes out. And guess what? It's only rated G! You NEVER see that anymore!


  1. Isn't it so freeing to be comfortable enough with yourself to be able to go to a movie by yourself and have a good time?

  2. It REALLY is. I think it's my new favorite thing to do.

  3. Im gonna agree with both of you, I have always wanted to after seeing it in movies all the time... and a month ago I finally did it, and it was AWESOME! Who needs a friend to sit next to in the movie? all I need is my popcorn and my diet coke.

  4. And that's exactly what I had, Sarah! haha

  5. Way to go girl! I love going to the movies by myself. You've got my interested peeked about Ramona and Beezus. Maybe I will see it after all.
