Romana and Beezus Trailer

Ok, am I the only one who remembers the Sarah Polley TV show of Ramona? I checked them out on VHS (so oldschool, I know) from my library and watched them as a kid. And I loved it. Sarah Polley was Ramona for me. So I'm still not sure I can bet behind this movie, but we'll see, maybe they'll surprise me. What do you think?


  1. I read the books long before the TV series came out. While Sarah Polley was good, I never really felt that she looked the way Ramona was supposed to look (it was probably due to the bad wig). The casting in this new version looks pretty good... at least for Ramona. Beezus looks Hispanic! Oh, well.

    It looks like they captured some of the funny scenes in the books, too (like when Ramona crashed through the ceiling). If this movie's been done right, it could be a huge hit.

  2. I dont remember the books very well but this looks AMAZING and wow the cast! Im sooooo excited!

  3. I haven't thought about those tv episodes in years!! Wow, way to bring back the memories. Nothing however will ever top the book.

  4. I think the casting for everyone looks great. What a fun trailer...gonna have to see this!

  5. I LOVED those books as a kid. I can't wait to share them with my own daughter. I think the movie looks pretty cute!

  6. sI also completely loved those Ramona videos...I checked them out from the library over and over!I will give this one a try though...maybe it will introduce a new generation of kids to Ramona!
