Ramona And Beezus review

The antics of two sisters in suburban America

This wholesomely bland kids’ flick revolves around the antics of its titular sisters, residents of sunny, middle-class Oregon.

Mischievous nine-year-old Ramona (Joey King) has a vivid imagination and tendency to leave chaos in her wake, while teenage sib Beezus (Selena Gomez) is a more grounded, grade-A student.

Adapted from a series of books by Beverly Cleary, the episodic material is better suited to a sitcom format.

Performances are perfectly pleasant, but more of Ramona’s flights of fancy and less lingering on the adult romance would’ve added some oomph.
