QUICK TAKE:
Family Comedy: A young girl makes elaborate plans to have fun on her summer vacation, but things keep going awry.
PLOT:
Judy Moody (JORDANA BEATTY) has made it through third grade and is looking forward to a summer of fun with her friends Rocky (GARRETT RYAN), Amy (TAYLAR HENDER), and Frank (PRESTON BAILEY). But her plans are turned upside down when Rocky announces he is going to attend a two-month circus camp and Amy gets to go to Borneo with her globetrotting journalist mother. Only Frank is staying behind, and he is way too timid to join Judy on the kind of thrill-seeking adventures she craves.

Matters go from bad to worse when Judy's father and mother (KRISTOFFER RYAN WINTERS and JANET VARNEY, respectively) inform her that they have to travel across the country to take care of her ailing grandfather, leaving Judy and her kid brother Stink (PARRIS MOSTELLER) in the care of their wacky Aunt Opal (HEATHER GRAHAM).

While apart, Judy and her friends challenge each other to accumulate "thrill points" throughout the summer by completing such challenges as riding a roller coaster, sitting through an entire scary movie, and walking a tightrope. For one reason or another, Judy fails to complete all of these tasks. So she needs to do one of two things to salvage the season: either locate her teacher Mr. Todd (JALEEL WHITE), who says he has a prize waiting for anyone who finds him in a "cold place;" or two, help Stink and his friend Hunter (CAMERON BOYCE) on their crazy quest to capture the mythic creature Bigfoot, who is rumored to be living in the nearby woods.

WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
Yes, indeed, if they're girls in the 6-11 age range.
WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: PG
For some mild rude humor and language.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
