Hey girls, ever see a guy and just know you’re going to kiss him? Or guys: ever have a girl like you one second and not the next? Get a crash course in first love with the new movie Flipped!


Juli Baker is a little weird. At least, that’s what Bryce thinks. Juli thinks Bryce is wonderful. She’s been crushing on Bryce since she very first saw him move in to her neighborhood.


Back And Forth

But there are two sides to every story and while a moment might go well in Juli’s eyes, it’s totally different from Bryce’s! Flipped goes back and forth between Juli and Bryce’s perspectives so you get to see everything from both points of view.


One Messy Yard

Bryce’s dad doesn’t think much of Juli and her family. Their yard is full of weeds so he doesn’t think Juli is good enough for Bryce. But when Bryce teases her about it, Juli spends weeks fixing up her family’s yard. Her family might not have as much money as Bryce’s, but she’s a hard worker. She also cares deeply about nature. When city works try to cut down her favorite sycamore tree, she climbs the tree in protest. Suddenly Bryce starts to see Juli in a new light.


Based On The Book

Flipped is based on a book of the same name by Wendelin Van Draanen. Flipped director Ron Reiner tried to stay as close to the original as possible which makes sense—Flipped won 4 book awards!


The Bottom Line

Flipped takes place in the ‘60’s but don’t be fooled by the dated scenery—this movie might be set in the past, but you’ll definitely relate to Bryce and Juli. The ups and downs of love are always the same no matter when you’re experiencing them! Check this one out and bring your parents.
