This year summer may officially begin on June 21, but summer FUN begins promptly on Friday, June 10, 2011, when Judy Moody and the Not Bummer Summer opens in theaters nationwide!  This summer, third grader Judy Moody (played by Jordana Beatty) is planning the most super-duper, double-rare summer vacation ever with best friends Rocky and Amy. But it turns out Rocky (Garret Ryan) is going to circus camp to learn to tame lions, and Amy (Taylar Hender) is headed off to Borneo with her mom to save a lost tribe while Judy stays home with her pesky little brother Stink (newcomer Parris Mosteller) and second-best friend Frank Pearl (Preston Bailey). Just when she thinks things are as rotten as they can be, her parents announce that they will be going to California and Judy will have to stay behind with her Aunt Opal (Heather Graham) who she’s never even met!  It looks like Judy’s best summer ever has just become her worst summer ever.

But feisty, fearless and ever-funny Judy Moody never gives up!  With help from some unexpected sources, she’s headed for a summer full of surprises in this charming and spirited family film.

Get ready, get set, get MOODY!
