This is my 100th post. It's hard to believe that I've seen so many movies on the big screen in under two years. I thank the readers for the continued support and I hope to make changes to my blog format and the way I review films in the near future.
Flipped was a feel-good film about preteens and first loves. The story of the film stood out in that it wasn't a cliche film about a girl who loves a boy and goes gaga over him throughout the movie. Instead, the movie was more complicated. The relationships were revolved around conflict and reality. The story told in the movie is something that can really happen in a teen's life. The child actors were surprisingly good. They were very witty and had a way of talking that made you smile. It's rare that I come across a movie that is set in the 1960's that doesn't impress me, but this is more than that, it was a feel good coming-of-age story about twelve year olds that grow upbefore your eyes in under two hours. 3 and a half out of 4 stars.

Drew Barrymore was as likable as she has been in her career. She plas vintage Drew, a girl who charms her way through the film and regardless of the movie, you still like her. The movie was great with an evolving story and even though the ending was a bit cliche, it was still enjoyable. Justin Long was witty and is a great second half to a sparkling Drew Barrymore. Not much to say about this film other than it was funny, charming, and fast paced. 3 out of 4 stars.
