Plot:

In 1957, when second-graders Bryce Loski and Julianna “Juli” Baker first meet, Juli knows it’s love, but Bryce isn’t so sure and tries to avoid Juli. By the sixth grade, in 1961, Bryce tries to get rid of Juli by dating Sherry Stalls, whom Juli despises. However, Bryce’s best friend, Garrett, takes an interest in Sherry and eventually tells her the truth about Bryce asking her out; she doesn’t take it well. From Juli’s perspective, Bryce returned her feelings, but was shy. After finding out Bryce and Sherry broke up, she thought she could have Bryce back. But then they reconsider their decisions as time goes on. In 1962, Bryce’s grandfather Chet Duncan moves in with the family. Chet has different views about Juli. There’s a large, old sycamore tree that Juli loves which no one else understands. One day, it’s cut down by a group of landscapers so a house can be built there, despite Juli’s opposition. She becomes very depressed afterwards, as the tree let her see the world in a more enlightened way. Her father gives her a painting of the tree.

    Yeah you heard that right. Scott Pilgrim was not the only movie that Im using that phrase on because this one stands on the same line of awesomeness in movie rating. Only that these 2 movies I have mentioned are on 2 different genre.I love the idea that the scriptwriter has managed to make a story that is completely different from others. Sure we have watched many narrated movies, but narrated by 2 different people with different perspectives? That was priceless, seriously. I have never seen something like this.Love does not come in a blink. Sometimes we have to undergo the very same process that Juli and Bryce did and their story was very lovely and made me think that we have to appreciate what is already there for us. Sometimes we are just too ignorant to notice the goodness of life that we have already had.Find your love, Live your life.Cheers.

    iridescent – adjective: showing luminous colors that seem to change when seen from different angles When I hear “romantic comedy” I think of 20 something year olds in New York swapping corny lines via Twitter at a bar. Flipped takes a more adolescent perspective on love in a quainter town and in a quainter time. Interestingly enough, even though the main characters are children, the movie targets an adult crowd. Not because there is adult content, but because it takes an adult who has gone through life’s lessons to appreciate the complex and pithy analogy and irony. Although in one intense scene a mom ushered her children out of the theater, don’t bring your 4 year olds.Flipped is a story about Bryce Loski and Juli Baker, both of whom narrate the story. The movie begins with Bryce’s perspective.Bryce’s Perspective: He just moved into town. He’s in the moving truck helping his father with the boxes until Juli interrupts and tries to help. His father emphasizes that there are valuables in the boxes, but she can’t seem to take a clue. “Shouldn’t you go help your mother in the kitchen, Bryce?” After a second, the confusion on his face vanishes once he understands his father’s ploy. He hops out of the truck and Juli follows closely behind. She puts her arm around him. In defense against cooties he flails his arms, but she somehow gets a hold of his hand. He looks right at her face in disgust. Fortunately, his mom comes out. He resorts to his only defense for a boy his age – he hides behind his mom. Juli is so annoying! Juli’s Perspective: Bryce just moved into town. Attracted by his “dazzling” eyes, she offers to help, but not 2 minutes pass and his father sends him into the house. She could tell from his face he didn’t want to go, so she went after him to see if he’d like to play for a bit before he got stuck inside. To her surprise, Bryce takes her hand and looks lovingly into her eyes. Unfortunately, his mom comes out. Embarrassed about his feelings for her, Bryce hides behind his mom. Bryce is so shy! The entire movie follows this pattern. Bryce and Juli take turns describing their thoughts and motives. It’s interesting to watch their contradicting thoughts converge into a single stream of unfolding events. The audience also gets a sense of Bryce’s and Juli’s personalities. Although Bryce is the handsome young kid at school their vastly different narration proves which of the two has more character. The first scene, Bryce’s and Juli’s first encounter, gives the false impression that Flipped is a love story. It kind of is. But although the thread that holds everything together is the love story between Bryce and Juli the fabric of the story is substance. The substance of character. Each character’s role provides a perspective and a life lesson. The fulcrum upon which these morals are balanced is best represented by the sycamore tree – the gem of the town.The sycamore tree has many symbolic interpretations – all of which are equally appropriate for the story and its characters. Vanity. Juli is enthralled by those “dazzling” eyes and is irrationally in love with Bryce. Bryce is equally irrational in his disdain of Juli. Bryce’s father is especially guilty of this sin. He washes away the pain of lost aspirations with bourbon and takes comfort in condescension. He refuses Juli’s fresh eggs produced by her hens simply because of the Bakers’ disheveled front yard. However, the sycamore tree could also represent divinity, protection and strength. Juli’s favorite spot in town is the peak of the sycamore tree. Here she reveled in the sunset igniting the surrounding clouds and the wind kissing her skin. She suddenly understood what her father meant when he said the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. Juli could see it in the landscape. She could even see it in Bryce, but is he greater or less than the sum of his parts? When the tree’s owner decided to cut it down, Juli defended it by remaining in the tree. But when it eventually came down, her vanity, her irrational love, began to come down as well. Juli questions the whole that is Bryce Loski. Likewise, Bryce begins to see Juli from a different angle.Flipped is a gem in itself. I laughed. I cried. No I didn’t, but it was very moving. And the writing is pretty good. If you enjoyed The Wonder Years or if you ever daydreamed about that one girl you kissed when you were 13, you’ll get a nostalgic kick out of Flipped. If you don’t know The Wonder Years and you’ve never been kissed, you’ll still love it. It’s flippin’ great.Read more chick flick reviews for men @ RatedChick.com

    Rob Reiner still has it. This sort of movie is an incredible risk because there are so many ways that it can fail. If you have not seen it, it is a simple Junior High romance taken very seriously. Some rather deep family issues apply; frailty and cowardice in the face of small challenges turned larger. Things could have slipped at many points. There is a wise grandfather who could have become the font of wisdom that makes all well. He is set up to do this, but then he falls away to other dynamics.There are a number of crises, large ones to a child, involving issues that threaten adults. In a similar film, there would be just one of these and it would the occasion for a redemptive but false ending. There are secondary adults that are artificially comic, but they come and go so fast the silly tone they carry does not stick. This thing really does make you cry.The main reason I think is that there is a special narrative device. Every scene is told first through the boy’s eyes, narrated directly by him, then replayed. It uses the very same takes I think, but using different camera angles and extended differently. It is set in 1963, which means that the speakers will have been married for decades and are recounting the early stages of their romance. This subtle device is profoundly effective. All the retrospective insights are not those of children, but adults with thankful wisdom. Yet another technique of narrative folding. You don’t quite know if the romance will work out, but you do know it will end well.The girl is another flatfaced, appealing talent. These actresses don’t seem to do well as adults. We’ll see.Ted’s Evaluation — 3 of 3: Worth watching.

    Need I say more. This could have been a 3 or 4 star movie if they had shown more and told less. The voice over is so overdone, I was literally laughing at times, and the only other knock would be the 5 seconds they spend on showing you the mentally challenged uncle/brother that is a centerpiece of the story. Lets just say in the words of Robert Downey Jr. He went way past full retard. I have a mentally ill aunt and I’ve been around her and her fellow roommates at her home my whole life. They go from 0 to 100 on the stereotypical caricature of a mentally ill person. That made me laugh too, at how ridiculous that whole part of the movie was. They even have a pin-wheel in it for good measure, you see what i mean. Oh well, if you have the patience to put up with the constant voice over telling you what your seeing then you might want to check it out, but unfortunately it’s there and its hard to call this a good movie. Rob Reiner should release a cut w/o the voice over.

    If you are looking for a nice love story that isn’t perverted by a bunch of senseless swearing and sex then this is the movie for you! This movie proves that a love story can be clean and viewable for the whole family. There are a few swears, when they are talking about Julies eggs from the chickens in her science experiment, when Bryce is laying in bed after that thinking that his friend didn’t know anything about chickens, one during the basket boy scene. Other than that I think it was fantastic … definitely a 10/ 10.,.,…………. …..

    I will be short – I haven’t expected this Saturday afternoon movie (just watched it for the first time) was so, so well made – touching, bringing old lost memories, it melted down my heart and brought me to tears far more than once. Watch it! And remember it! It’s a movie for the soul!

    Flipped is a coming of age film directed by the coming of age master director Rob Reiner. Reiner directed the tear-jerker Stand By Me and is now back to bring Wendelin Van Draanen’s novel of the same name to life. What a treat! Flipped and Stand By Me both make me wish my childhood was full of more adventure and fun rather than just me sitting on the computer writing review after review aspiring to be a critic. I get tears in my eyes to both films because I become so attached to the characters and they’re living the life I can only dream to have. With the exception of unfaithful parents when it comes to Stand By Me.What came to mind halfway through the film was why couldn’t the movie Speak have been this good? This film proves more than 80% can be done by narration from TWO characters different perspective and it can be done well. Why not do the same for Speak? Most of the dialog in this film is internal and not directly word of mouth and it works. Why not treat Speak the same way? Were they afraid they would mess it up? It begs an explanation to why Laurie Halse Anderson’s novel’s potential on film was unfaithful to it’s film companion.Never reading the book, I do know that it was set in the nineties and the two thousands while this film’s setting is in the late fifties and early sixties. It’s not that big of a deal with the drastic setting change, but maybe I would’ve been more upset if I was a huge fan of the book to find out the film was set four years in the past.The movie about Bryce Loski (McAuliffe), a kid who moves into the neighborhood at a young age to immediately become eye candy to his new neighbor Juli Baker (Carroll). Bryce is resistant, while Juli is persistent. She is positive Bryce will give her her first kiss and believes Bryce is just a little shy, when really he wants nothing to do with her. Juli continues up until present day middle school to give Bryce the chance to admit his “feelings” for her but doesn’t.Juli lives across the street from Bryce and her yard is an eyesore. It’s paid for by the landlord since most of the money Juli and her family makes is given to Juli’s father’s mentally challenged brother. Bryce’s family, his dad mostly, is annoyed by Juli and her family’s crappy yard and continue to bad mouth and make assumptions about the Baker family when they really have no idea what it’s like over there.The film is narrated by both leads more often than not. Usually we’ll get five minutes or so of Bryce narrating his side of the story, while Juli narrates her’s. It’s almost an anthology because we see what goes on from Bryce’s standpoint while hearing his thoughts at the moment and then we see what happened prior or after the events of Bryce’s because we then go to Juli. It’s confusing. But it works all the time.At the beginning of the film I thought the narrations were only used for the audience to get affiliated with the lives of the characters and what happened before we got here. We spend ninety minutes or longer with movie characters and some films don’t even give you the damn courtesy to provide us with any kind of background information. We are supposed to just be thrown into a film with characters we sometimes don’t even find out the last names to.The one minor problem I have with the film is the end. It leaves off on the wrong note. The film is only ninety minutes when it could and should be longer. The place they ended was fine, but the scenes on the DVD cover and poster never occur in the film. What a letdown.Flipped is 2010’s underrated masterpiece and it definitely showcases a worthy coming of age film. It’s smooth style of directing, great music, calm feeling even at it’s most stressful, and strong leads are more than I could’ve asked for. Rob Reiner is something else. A true talent in the movie business. Especially when making a movie as heartfelt as this one.Starring: Callan McAuliffe, Madeline Carroll, Rebecca De Mornay, Anthony Edwards, John Mahoney, Penelope Ann Miller, Aidan Quinn, and Kevin Weisman. Directed by: Rob Reiner.

    Juli fell in love with Bryce when his family moved in across the street; they were both in the second grade and for the next six years, much to his chagrin, she chased him. Bryce thought Juli was a bit of an odd duck and he spent all of his time trying to avoid her until one day, in the eighth grade, he stopped running.I love Rob Reiner’s classic coming-of-age film, “Stand By Me,” so I expected this movie to be similarly engaging, if not memorable. Unfortunately, it suffers from a weak and boring script, dull and stereotypical characters, and such slow pacing that I thought it would never end. Like “Stand,” this story is set in the fifties, but there’s nothing endearing or nostalgic about it; the era is poorly recreated and felt too contemporary. Each scene is seen and narrated from both Juli and Bryce’s viewpoint and this gimmick gets old fast. I didn’t believe these children would dissect every single thing the other did and said; it quickly became predictable and tedious and they sounded like obsessed 40-year olds.All of the actors were competent but their characters were either dull or underdeveloped. They didn’t do or say anything interesting, let alone cute or charming. This was a humorless and pointless snooze fest for me.

    A very enjoyable movie, effectively embracing the coming of age sensitivities which come to us all. Although it is clear there are many nuances of other characters which never get dealt with, it’s meant to be that way. This is about the kids, the effect they have on one another, their ability and inability to express their feelings, and what can happen when we finally face our fears about the other sex and dare to take a step toward resolving them. The only issue I have is that the film simply has too many anachronisms — songs not of the period and figures of speech clearly from the present and not the fifties and sixties, but hey, I’m too darn picky about that stuff. Reiner has done it again, offering us a film in the style and tone of Capra. He has crafted a film of sensitivity and grace, and taught us something about life that most of us lose upon becoming adults. Madeline Carroll is simply wonderful as the independent teen taking life head on, and is a true pleasure to watch. She absolutely carries this film.

    This film takes a more adolescent perspective on love The story is set in the late 50s to early 60’s.It starts off when a new family moves in across the street.The young girl played by Madeline Carroll named Juli Baker,who see’s the new boy across the street played by Callan McAuliffe named Bryce Loski and has the most stunning eyes she has ever seen. Rob Reiner did a superb job telling it entirely in a voice over of one of the two main characters Bryce and Juli tells each side of the story from each point of view. Sometimes the views are not the same. Juli’s favorite spot in town is the top of the sycamore tree which is cut down by the yards owner. Juli starts to questions the whole that is Bryce Loski. Likewise, Bryce begins to see Juli from a different angle.Bryce’s father played by Anthony Edwards is a typical father of the late 50’s. He cares more about the outside appearance then what is really within. He has a darkness inside of him. The wife played by Rebecca De Mornay is susie home maker type of role. The grandfather father played by John Mahoney is a soft speaking man, who moves in with the Loski family tries to get Bryce to see the world with open eyes.It has a great use of that periods music that is well thought out. All-in-all this is a wholesome family film. Highly recommend to see it.

    Juli flipped over Bryce. Bryce’s dad flips out. Mom and sister wear their hair in a flip.Charming tale told in a “he said she said” often voice-over manner. Interesting enough and short enough so the style doesn’t detract. Don’t let the print ads mislead you. Bryce never climbs the tree.Excellent performances from the entire cast. Outstanding use of period music. Great collection of shinning ’57 Chevy’s.Courage, family values, character and nothing explodes. People of every age are treated with respect. What a refreshing movie. Archie Bunker was wrong, Rob Reiner got it right again. He’s no meat-head.

    Beautifully told with all the ingredients for a good family movie. The story is told from two different views, the view from the boy and from the girl. A boy who is annoyed by all the attention he gets from the girl across the street. The girl from across the street who has a super crush on the boy tells her part of the story. The boy’s father is a man filled with hatred who dispenses politically incorrect lines throughout the movie. The grandfather, the great John Mohoney, is the wise person who tells the boy to really see the girl for what she is, a very special girl. I don’t want to give anything away of this jewel of a movie. I enjoyed this movie very much and totally recommend it.

    Okay, let’s dispense immediately with the idea that this film is geared toward teenagers and all of their sap that they go through. I assure you “mature adults” out there that this film will delight you also, unless you are a completely hopelessly lost Scrooge. This film should make sense to all ages. Everyone should identify with it. I don’t care what kind of a snob, low-life, big wig, or puritan you are, you should enjoy this film. It’s never too sappy when it deals with matters of the heart, nor is it too blunt and insensitive.The film is told almost entirely in a voice over of one of the two main characters. It’s told in a brilliant he-said she-said style where the same scene is often told twice from the two opposite points of view (Juli’s and Bryce’s). So we see the opening scene twice. The first time as explained by Bryce, and the second time explained by Juli. This sort of formula is used many a time in the unfolding battle of the sexes. Of course this doesn’t happen in every scene—that would get boring. Director Reiner gives us the proper dosage of everything in this film. The proper amount of comedy, romance, and the proper amount of sadness. Never is it sappy or indulgent or even presumptuous. It’s a perfect film for what it’s worth. The screenplay is absolutely the work of a fine craftsman—or craftsmen Andrew Scheinman and director Reiner. I don’t know how long it took to write or how much blood went into it, but this film is the result of excellent work in every department. The two child stars are perfect in their roles (although Bryce could have done better), but the strength of the cast are in supporting actors. The cast is full of great actors, particularly Anthony Edwards as Bryce’s arrogant, critical, smart-Aleck father, and the ever-welcome Aidan Quinn as Juli’s loving, down-to-earth, tree painting father.I wasn’t completely convinced of the excellence of the film until a beautiful scene in which Mr. Baker (Quinn) and Juli go to visit Mr. Baker’s mentally retarded brother Daniel, who is so happy with the world and everything in it. But this scene can’t be expressed in words, you have to see it. For what it’s worth, Flipped is somewhat of a deep film, full of parallels to the real world. All of the characters have the proper amount of development, even the big sycamore tree that Juli likes to sit in and watch the sunrise. Her exploits while up in that tree are so poetic and beautiful when matched up with the pictures on screen. It’s a beautiful and insightful scene into the thoughts and feelings of people in general, not just a teenage girl.In this day when films are almost all big-budget action movies with loud explosions, Flipped has explosions of its own kind. It has explosions of heart and feeling and character, all at the appropriate times. I did not find any ax to grind here. Other than the characters, plot, and screenplay, it’s also a technically beautiful film. The camera captures everything so clearly with the proper color timing and excellently framed shots. After the mid-way point of the film, being surrounded by excellence, one starts to look for any reason to criticize the film. I found none. Every nuance of the film is done so genteelly and honestly, who can have a problem with it? This film achieves what movies are meant to achieve. They are meant to reach into are minds and draw us in, to entertain and to move us with fright, emotion, tears, laughs, whatever may be the subject. They are meant to create a world around us, whether in space, in the Wild West, in the future, in Bible times, or in the case of Flipped in 1960s suburbia. This film does exactly what it is meant to do. To touch and make us laugh and to remember. That’s what it does. It makes us remember what happened or is happening to us. No one can give this a bad review. I don’t see how anyone can pick a fight with the film. But I’m blabbing about nothing.In short, Flipped is by far the best film I’ve seen this year. I do hope the Academy doesn’t overlook this like they do so many other “family” films. It should at least get a few nominations, if not a win. We’ll see what happens. It’s only July.www.colewebbharter.com

    “Flipped” is superbly directed by Rob Reiner and in my book, one of his best movies. It’s a wonderfully told coming-of-age story, which I could relate to in many ways. The main two characters, Juli and Bryce, are very likable. Their parents, played by Penelope Ann Miller and Aidan Quinn, Rebecca de Mornay and Anthony Edwards, respectively, are believable in their roles, which they play excellently. I liked the fact that the story is told from two points of views, Bryce first and then Juli. If you want to see a really feel-good movie, instead of watching some dumb comedy or shoot ’em up flick, go see FLIPPED! You will not regret it.

    Back in 1973, an episode of “All in the Family” told the same story from three different perspectives, one of which was from the point of view of Mike “Meathead” Stivic, played by Rob Reiner. Watching his latest directorial effort, I wondered if the “he said / she said” gimmick of that episode (“Everybody Tells the Truth”) was what attracted Reiner to “Flipped,” the young-adult novel by Wendelin Van Draanen, which employs the same multi-POV technique that Lawrence Durrell perfected with his “Alexandria Quartet” in the late 1950s. The film version of “Flipped” shows Reiner at the top of his form, a worthy addition to an ouevre that includes such classics as “This Is Spinal Tap,” “Misery,” “When Harry Met Sally” and “Stand By Me,” the 1986 period piece that “Flipped” most recalls, with its younger characters and coming-of-age theme. At the heart of “Flipped” is Juli Baker (Madeline Carroll), a smart, pretty and thoughtful girl who you just can’t help losing your heart to. Juli herself flips for Bryce Loski, who is at first repelled by Juli and then slowly starts to see her for the lovely person she is. The cast is augmented by such pros as John Mahoney (Frasier’s dad on “Cheers”), Anthony Edwards, Aidan Quinn and Rebecca De Mornay and Penelope Ann Miller. The film offers up various slices of life from the late ’50s and early ’60s that makes for a nostalgic, romantic and very moving film. Special kudos to the filmmakers for finding a girl to play young Juli (Morgan Lily) who looks chillingly like Madeline Carroll; I would have bet anything the two were sisters. For those who are bored by the dumb-dumb summer comedies of 2010 (“The Other Guys,” “Dinner for Schmucks”) and the special-effects hijinks of “Inception,” this is a tender and emotionally satisfying journey that will stay with you for years.

    This is a coming of age film set initially and briefly in the late 1950s and mostly in the early 1960s. The boy, Bryce, is chased by his neighbor girl, Juli. And is he chased! Juli is immediately smitten or “flipped” by Bryce’s eyes and the story unfolds.What is unusual about the story telling is that each major event is played back twice – once through the eyes and voice of Bryce and once through the eyes and voice of Juli. It’s the same scene, but you wouldn’t know that from their differing viewpoints.Juli is the adventurous and interesting one. Bryce just wants to fit in at their Junior High School. Juli slowly begins to unlike Bryce and Bryce slowly begins to appreciate Juli. Will they ever meet at the same emotional place at the same time? That is the drama and story.The art direction and era are right on. It is the Eisenhower and Kennedy years in look, and even in feel. The wives are subordinate to the husbands. The children are mostly respectful to their parents. And the teachers teach and the students learn. But, you can see the seeds being laid for the rebellious war babies of the late 1960s.Rob Reiner is a talented director for romances – “When Harry Met Sally.” And he is a talented director for handling young actors – “Stand By Me.” He combines these talents to help us understand the better part of the human condition; that is, love, respect, sacrifice, forgiveness, and honor. And we have fun and laugh along the way. This is like the TV program, “Wonder Years” – but heightened and deepened.-Bob, a Heartland Truly Moving Picture Award Jury Member

    Flipped is a one in a million film – I mean, REALLY one in a million. It’s refreshing and lovely, dramatic and hilarious. It does what few films do in our time (or rather what they don’t do): Flipped does not sacrifice its integrity for raunchy, gratuitous content. It’s real. The emotions are real. The characters are real. And while it certainly isn’t G-rated fluff (and do not be fooled – this is not a film for young children), the movie is definitely gentle and innocent in many ways. On the downside, without giving anything away, the ending of the film could have been better patched together, but overall the movie is a cinematic gem like no other. Go see Flipped!

    ‘Flipped’ is truly a “real movie”. Probably what most people enjoyed about this movie was that the events that happened in the movie could might as well have been their reality. Many people in this world (if not all) have experienced having a real crush. This movie shows a crush blossoming from both a guy’s and a girl’s view. It was very interesting to see two viewpoints on this everyday happening. That is what makes this movie so appealing. Viewers get to watch Bryce and Juli’s emotions whenever they see the other. Viewers see Bryce and Juli’s smiles that they can’t help. Viewers get to know who exactly Bryce and Juli are.Anyone and everyone will enjoy this movie or can at least, relate to it. Even adults! This film will surely take you down memory lane and help you remember the feelings you had when you were first in love. I’ve never experienced being in love before, but this film makes it seem wonderful. I absolutely loved this film.Madeline Carroll and Callan McAuliffe were great in this film! Even if they’re very young, they did wonderful jobs in performing here. In each of their scenes, you could sense the emotions that they were feeling and wanted to convey to the viewers. The characters themselves were also very interesting. Particularly Ms. Juli Baker. It was nice to see such a free-spirited teenager, who was very opinionated and didn’t let anything stand in her way. The chemistry that both actors had were average. I thought that they showed their most potential when acting by themselves, in their own surroundings.I was pleasantly surprised when I found out that Rob Reiner, the director of this film, was the same person who directed ‘When Harry Met Sally’ and ‘Sleepless in Seattle’. So far, all romantic-comedies that Rob Reiner has directed has not disappointed me. I can’t wait for more of his works! All his rom-coms are excellent additions to the romance movie genre.This was an amazing teenage romantic comedy. Surely one of my favorites, right up there with ‘When Harry Met Sally’. Do not miss this film. It’s baffling to see that this film isn’t as popular as it’s supposed to be.Viewed on: April 5, 2011 ; December 16, 2011

    Juli just had to take one look at Bryce’s blue eyes, and she knew it was true love. Bryce just had to take one notice of Juli’s manic desperation, and he knew it was going to be a friendship of torment. I just had to take one look at the film’s artfully designed poster, and I knew “Flipped” was a film to be savoured.A beautifully told film of first love, we flip from Juli’s point of view to Bryce’s point of view, very effectively giving us the true nature of their friendship, love and respect they have for each other. Except in the case of middle-school graders, that love and respect can frequently look like embarrassment, mistrust, and shame. All of those emotions are told with intelligence, subtlety and humour.”Flipped” has all of the comedy, naiveté and bewilderment of first love. It takes the romantic comedy farther by actually giving us characters with real depth. There is more going on than just Juli and Bryce figuring out their love for each other, and every aspect of this film is well written, touching and relevant.”Flipped” is a cute film for everybody who fondly remembers that fiercely independent girl or the guy with piercing blue eyes that lived across the street.

    The first few minutes sent me back a decade reminding how much we avoided girls or getting our names attached to one..I really liked how the story showed a basic fact (mostly at least) :”The one you love doesn’t love you back, and you don’t love the one that loves you!”Though the main story is not that all can relate to, the background or the base of the story was really nice. The character development was good, not like many movies which focus on only the main characters. Though the story was a little predictable, the movie is enjoyable and among a few to which we can relate to.This movie is definitely worth a watch.And it deserves an 8 out of 10.

    Of all the movies I’ve seen lately, Flipped was amongst the most refreshing. If it had been done by a different director and had different screenwriters, it might be a terrible cliché. Story of first love, known each other since kids, bla bla bla, we’ve all heard it before.But this movie, it was so pure and so realistic, which is what I love about it most. It wasn’t over the top romantic, but it was enough to tug my heartstrings and made me go “awwww” instead of going “ewwww”.The characters felt like real people, and the issues faced in the story felt so real and believable, it made me believe in the basic form of love once more, and that it still existed in real life (even though I know it’s just in the movies, but still).Anyway, if you’re looking for a story that is refreshing yet vintage, and wanting to have a lovey-dovey grin plastered on your face, then this is the movie to watch.

    “All I ever wanted was for Juli Baker to leave me alone.”Flipped is easily the best love story/relationship movie I’ve seen since (500) Days of Summer. I’m the kind of guy that you couldn’t pay to watch a Nicholas Sparks movie, but that doesn’t mean that I can’t appreciate a good movie about the highs and lows of love. In a year of formulaic, mind-numbing flicks with no imagination or heart like Letters to Juliet, Flipped is a welcome breath of fresh air. It’s about 8 or so years in the lives of two kids who meet when when one of them moves into a new neighborhood. Juli (played by Morgan Lily and Madeline Carroll) is instantly smitten by Bryce (Ryan Ketzner and Callan McAuliffe) the second she sees him drive up to his new house. Bryce, being a typical second grade boy, finds her attention embarrassing and unwanted. As they get older, that dynamic between them remains pretty much the same, but we wouldn’t have a very interesting movie if that’s all there was to it. Eventually Bryce finds himself on the other side of the equation (flipped, get it?), and has to win back the girl he never knew he always wanted.How odd is it that a movie about a couple of kids handles the topic of love in a more mature and genuine way than almost all of the adult-oriented romantic comedies that we’re buried under each year? There’s no doubt about it that Flipped will make you say “aww” on occasion, but there’s a lot more to it than just kids being cute. Humor, issues of class, family conflict, and the lost idealism of youth are introduced into the story by Bryce and Juli’s respective families, and there are several outright bittersweet or poignant scenes within the story.The movie is shown from the POV’s of both main characters, and often the same event will be shown from each of their perspectives. It works really well, as it really helps the viewer to “get” both Bryce and Juli. The kids chosen to play the older versions of the two (Carroll and McAuliffe) are both great, the fact that the story is set in 50’s or 60’s suburbia adds a believable sense of innocence to it all, and there is just a fresh feeling to the movie that I can’t really describe with words.I heartily recommend this to anyone who likes a good, well-written movie, regardless of the genre. You can tell that a lot of heart went into making Flipped, and it shows. Great movie.
