Ramona and Beezus

Ramona Quimby's 9-year-old life is far from perfect. Everybody loves her teen sis, Beezus—with all her straight-A report cards and her gorgeous looks and all. But they hate Ramona. Well, they don't really hate her, but to her it sure feels that way sometimes. 

But Ramona is determined to use all of her imaginative skills to help out after her dad loses his job. If her ideas fall apart—as usual—well, she'll just have to try again. Of course, sometimes things get so bad that a girl just can't help screwing up her face and spitting out the worst word she can think of  . . . guts!

The Quimby family deals with struggles that every family experiences and overcomes them with a heartwarming sense of love and support. Ramona and her parents have a great relationship, and even though times are tough in the Quimby household, Mom and Dad always try to keep things positive for their children. The film has some slapstick humor, including falling off a jungle gym and breaking through a ceiling.

In Ramona and Beezus, we see that nothing in life can be perfect, but there are simple things or special moments that can almost make it there. Ramona's world is chaotic; she is part tomboy, part hopeless imaginer, part disaster area. But she's also instantly ready to give her all for her family, and they are ready to love her back just as completely.
