The film is easy, programme humor, with a dash or two of genuine excitement.

I got a big kick out of this little detective story.

June 16, 2007 | Rating: B+ | Full Review…

The action moves along at a good clip, although there are some digressions with the neighborhood children that appear thrown in specifically to appease a young audience.

Audience Reviews for Nancy Drew, Reporter


This is a cute and quirky little movie for youngsters, but I think it sometimes tries a little too hard to be that. It was a pretty good movie, especially the humor. I think kids will like it.
