Flipped tells the tale of two second graders falling in love. With each other, not with dogs or something weird. Get your mind out of the gutter.
Based on the novel by Wendelin Van Draanen, whose name will appear only once in this preview because she clearly had parents who hate her, Flipped is set in the ancient past, probably the 1950’s, and shows all the crazy things that young boys do when they’re young.
Flipped is directed by Rob Reiner, whose last work was The Bucket List, which is the only decent film he’s done in years, so I’m not sure you’ll want more. What’s that? You want more? Fine. More it is. Two seven year olds who couldn’t be more different start to have feelings for each other. Unfortunately, they’re too young to know what to do with their plumbing, so it’ll be boring. Love is only interesting when there’s banging, and they need to be adults first. And married. Cause I’m all about treating women with respect and honor and…
I enjoy the sight of their boobs. But only when of age. Good Lord! Get your mind out of the gutter. I won’t say it again!

In the 1950’s children were not raised by their parents, but rather by corporations looking to test products on them. Then came those stupid hippies who suggested testing makeup on dogs. Like a dog’s going to look good in makeup. Now you know why those Jersey Shore Girls look like crap. Their makeup has not been accurately tested!
The Bucket List, The Sandlot, Rumor Has It, When Harry Met Sally
What’s Good About It?
Rob Reiner has made some amazing films, and this looks like a love letter to his childhood. Expect your parents to cry. I, on the other hand will not. It’s not like it’s the trailer for Conviction.
What’s Bad About It?
It looks a bit by the numbers, and maybe a bit fake. It’s like a Norman Rockwell painting of idyllic childhood. The reality was so much more harsh. You did read my interesting fact, right?
Our Clever Prediction
What the heck happened to Rob Reiner? Why’s he making this crap? He directed A Few Good Men. I can’t decide if the biggest star is washed up Aidan Quinn or washed up Rebecca De Mornay. Low box office, no awards. But your parents will love it. (old people rarely see films, hence the low box office)
