NEW YORK REVIEW
Nancy Drew opens ineptly (it's hard even to know what's going on), and the story line takes its heroine out of her small town to a Los Angeles that looks like outtakes from Clueless. It gets better, though. It's one of the few tween movies that isn't in your face; its limpness becomes appealing. Largely that's because its Nancy Drew is so special. Emma Roberts is another in the Roberts clan—Eric's daughter, Julia's niece—and like her aunt, she has oversize features and coltish legs. But she hasn't gotten slick yet. She acts like a young girl who's still delighted—as so many Nancy Drew readers were—just saying the word sleuth. —Reviewed by David Edelstein, New York Magazine
