Sleuthing Sundays - Nancy Drew movie (2007)

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. 


  1. I've been meaning to get ahold of this one and watch it. It looks cute!

  2. The movie sounds like fun, I havent seen many movies with Emma..or there aren't many..but it sounds nice. :)

  3. Britt - I really think it is worth watching for Nancy fans.

    Nina - It is very cute. I don't think she's been in too many other movies.
