Mild coarse language

Director: Rob Reiner
Actors: Madeline Carroll, Callan Mcauliffe, Rebecca De Mornay, Anthony Edwards, John Mahoney, Penelope Ann Miller, Aidan Quinn, Kevin Weisman

When second-graders Bryce and Juli first meet, Juli knows it’s love. Bryce isn’t so sure. In the days and years ahead, Bryce (Callan McAuliffe) does all he can to keep his wannabe girlfriend at arm’s length – and the smart, independent-minded Juli (Madeline Carroll) continues to give him the benefit of the doubt. This tender coming-of-age romantic comedy from director Rob Reiner takes the pair from grade school to junior high, through triumph and disaster, family drama and first love, as they make discoveries that will define who they are – and who they are to each other.

That movie brings back memories of years gone by when strange things happen inside you in the company of someone lovely. When the families don't understand you. When you don't understand yourself. Great acting.

A beautifully sensitive movie which deals with the ups and downs of adolescent love in a sympathetic and heartfelt way. Several scenes in this film were considerably moving as ordinari people negotiated their way through the difficulties life throws up. The film also showed how prejudices can be unfounded and that listening to thiose with the wisdom of age can be beneficial. Performances were excellent. A most satisfying viewing experience.

Nice feel good movie about 2 kids who in the end discover that they really like each other - your kids can even watch this movie which is a bonus.

Cute, child romance

The above intro pretty much says it all, but what it doesn't mention is that the story is narrated by the two lead characters throughout, each one often seeing & narrating the same scene from their own perspective, which is quite insightful given the tumultuously confusing nature of first love. It might seem a little slow for some guys, & older teens (the ones who are experts on everything whilst knowing nothing at all) would probably pan it for being lame, but my wife & I found it to be a sweet, pleasant, well acted story.

I watched this movie with my 9year & 12 year old children and it was just adorable, my youngest daughter said it was her favourite movie. For all parents it's totally clean, no swearing and nothing inappropriate. I give this movie 5 stars - there is only a few movies that I give a 5 star rating.

Hired the movie for my children 3 & 6.5 - the 3 y/o didn't care much for it (which I did expect), my 6.5 y/o was glued to it and it was all very appropriate. Nothing that I felt I should be hiding her from. Me - I felt myself finding excuses to sit down with them. It was a really sweet movie about young love. Told from two different perspectives and about a different era. I would recommend this movie.

Sweet, naive, innocent, warm...brings back those good old (young) feelings. The film enables you to revisit the simpler times in life and then explores that there's actually more sides to a story. If only we could realise this and use it more in realtime, you'll get that tingling in the spine that everything would be alright//and the world can be flipped for the better. Beautiful.

A Wonder Years rip-off about the girl next door. Set in the 50s and 60s but everyone talks and acts like they're living in the 90s.

Two eighth graders start to have feelings for each other despite being total opposites. Great movie from director Rob Reiner
