Last week I saw “Charlie St. Cloud”, this week I saw “Flipped”. Charlie ripped at my heart but in the end the boy got the girl, the brother went to heaven and all was right with the world again. In Flipped, there was no tugging at the heart string, no painful goodbye’s just some cute puppy love and goo-goo eyes. That’s not to say that it was just an empty kiddy flick with no message for the youngsters. It was filled with kindness, sympathy for those less fortunate and best of all, an acceptance for things that are what they are and can’t be changed. The best part of the film was John Mahoney. Rarely can an actor say so much with so few words. Every kid going into Junior High should see this movie but they probably won’t because there’s no mind-blowing CG, no killer sound track and nobody gets to kick the crap out of the bully. Sad, very sad.

It is a romantic comedy as well, only with fourteen year olds in the main roles. The main female character is Juli Baker, portrayed by Madeleine Carroll.
