A new movie filled with imagination, comedy, and thrills that never seem to end comes out this weekend, and we are thrilled to have the opportunity to tell you about it. It is “Judy Moody and the Not Bummer Summer,” a wonderful movie for you and your family to go see.

If you like the book series by Megan McDonald, you will love the movie! If you have not read the series, it will motivate you to read more.

The movie begins with the end of school and Judy (played by Jordana Beatty) on a mission to make this summer the best ever. Judy Moody is an imaginative young girl who creates a way for her and her friends to measure their fun with a chart of thrill points.

Her plan gets complicated when her friends Amy (Taylar Hender) goes to Borneo and Rocky goes to Circus Camp. She ends up stuck with her other friend, Frank, her brother Stink (Parris Mosteller), and her zany Aunt Opal (Heather Graham), but that is when the fun really begins.

This movie is filled with nonstop antics and truly gross and hilarious moments. You will be able to experience this colorful film as if you are experiencing it yourself for the very first time. It will keep you guessing and rooting for Judy to win the challenge.

This movie will make you laugh and keep you on the edge of your seat, and, most of all, it will movie will get you into the summer spirit. Judy will take you on an adventure you will surely never forget. It is filled with many twists and turns from random sightings of Bigfoot and finding Mr. Todd (Jaleel White). After the movie you will find yourself wanting more. We recommend this movie to everyone, be sure to get your ticket.
