The star of the popular children’s book series created by writer Megan McDonald has hit the big screen! Children who have read this series or the Judy Moody and the Not Bummer Summer book will delight in seeing one of their favorite characters come to life.

"Judy Moody and the Not Bummer Summer" in theaters Friday, June 10, 2011.Judy Moody and her brother Stink (who has his own book series) cook up a summer of fun when their parents have to leave town unexpectedly and their eccentric Aunt Opal (played by Heather Graham) babysits for them. Judy Moody is determined to have the best summer ever and she has a colorful chart of exciting adventures to make that happen.

Stink has joined an eclectic group of Big Foot hunters. While Judy is determined to have the best summer ever and is out with her friend seeking to get the most points for their chart of thrills, Stink proclaims he will not give up until he finds Big Foot.

Meanwhile, Aunt Opal tells the children about her globe-trotting adventures and being a guerilla artist. Most adults could learn from the way that Aunt Opal encourages the children’s pursuits and gets involved with their adventures.

By the end of the movie, children will realize what it really means to have a great summer. Parents may be inspired to have some exciting adventures with their children this summer and everyone will enjoy seeing Steve Urkel (Jaleel White) from Family Matters play an important role in this family movie.
