Emma Roberts (Julia Roberts' niece) stars as the resourceful mystery solver Nancy Drew in this long-awaited adaptation of Carolyn Keene's classic young-adult novels. When Nancy accompanies her father (Tate Donovan--Good Night, and Good Luck.) on a business trip to Los Angeles, she uncovers evidence in the long-unsolved death of a beautiful movie star. Produced by Jerry Weintraub (Ocean's Eleven and Ocean's Twelve), this family mystery adventure finally brings Nancy Drew to where she belongs -- Hollywood!

Critics Consensus: Emma Roberts is bubbly and charming as Nancy Drew, the junior detective. But despite her best efforts, Nancy Drew still lacks excitement, surprise, and compelling secondary characters.

For sheer objectionable stupidity and dullness, this film takes the biscuit.

The age-old mystery doesn't exactly thrill, but there's humour here and there and a swotty heroine...

'Nancy Drew' still has a televisual feel - more 'Murder, She Wrote' than junior 'Marple'.

Common Sense Says
Big-screen teen sleuth is cute, if a bit bland.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that the big-screen Nancy Drew is very retro and straightlaced. And although she's being marketed to older tweens and young teens, even slightly younger kids will enjoy the teenage sleuth's harmless action. There are a few "good scary" moments (a face pops up in a dark room), and even though Nancy is forced to flee from armed henchmen and is even held at gunpoint, she never really seems like she'd be the victim of anything. It's worth noting that there are several prominent product placements, mostly computer and Internet related.
