Review - Ramona and Beezus

Newcomer girl thespian Joey King plays Ramona Quimby in Ramona and Beezus, a sweetened synthesis of stories from the great Beverly Cleary's classic series of kids' books about a rambunctious grade-schooler and her more sedate older sister, Beezus. Disney starlet Selena Gomez plays Beezus. Both sisters are nice, and so are the actresses who play them: They scrunch up their fresh faces to signify minor displeasure, and they poke their plump lower lips out prettily to telegraph momentary snits. Dad (John Corbett) and Mom (Bridget Moynahan), as well as Mom's slightly funky younger sister, Aunt Bea (Ginnifer Goodwin), and Aunt Bea's slightly funky former-and-future beau, Hobart (Josh Duhamel), are nice too. And don't forget Ramona's wise third-grade teacher, Mrs. Meacham (Sandra Oh) - she's nice even when she's saying shush.
