This has become one of my favorite rainy day/nothing to watch movies. Nancy has benefited from the updates while still retaining her essence. Emma Roberts does a nice job with Nancy, perfecting that know-it-all-but-still-super-nice thing that Nancy Drew has. I miss Bess and George and wish that they had been included more. I was glad to see Ned (sidenote: the kid who plays him looks a lot like the boy who played Ted in the old 1930's movies) and I'm happy that he has a bigger role. Same old Ned though always showing up to be the muscle and be the sort of boyfriend.
The wardrobe is amazing. I covet the clothes that Nancy wears. So classic and chic. Very cute. I wish they would make another one, but one in River Heights and not on location. Though Nancy goes away a lot in the books so it is not unprecedented.
