#HolidayGiftGuide - Judy Moody and the Not Bummer Summer

Ready for some THRILL POINTS?!
Then head on out and purchase Judy Moody and the NOT Bummer Summer!

I have seen this advertised all over the television and I was ready to see how Judy Moody was going to score points for an amazing summer.... Since 2 of her best friends were out of town.

Well- She did alright, but not like you would expect!!!!

This really was a cute movie...
You know how summer vacation always seems so boring, unless you have cool things planned?
Judy Moody was prepared! She worked on a pretty cool score chart so that her and her 3 best friends would score "thrill points" and have an amazing summer...
Until - she learned that 2 of them were heading out of town for the summer...
Talk about a bummer summer!!!

Long story short, she works hard to change it into a race to see who can get the most thrill points and win, but she keeps falling short... As the preview for the movie shows, they go on a roller coaster ride (major thrill points if you don't hold on) but her friend ends up getting sick, all over her... Talk about LOSING points!!!
Top it off, her crazy Aunt Opal is in charge of watching her and we learn that she hasn't driven in over 10 years!!!!
Besides trying to earn major thrill points, Judy has other things going on....
She is in search of her teacher, Mr. Todd... on the last day of school, he promised a prize to whichever student found him over the summer...
AND, she has her little brother, Stink to deal with...
Stink is on a mission to find Bigfoot, so he's up for his own adventures!!!

As I said, this was a cute movie, but I will tell you, I got annoyed with Judy being so pouty!
Hey, her friend even called her a FUN SPONGE!
(I totally need to remember that one!)
There was a couple times when she would pout and then say she was staying in her room for the whole summer...
What happened to getting outside and having fun?!
Either way, Aunt Opal remembered what it was like to be a kid like that... and helped her to realize she was having fun... and could earn thrill points!!!!

I think this is a movie that the tweens in your life will love!
Even though it has a girl for the main character, I think boys will laugh at it as well!!!
