About the film:
Juli Baker devoutly believes in three things: the sanctity of trees (especially her beloved sycamore), the wholesomeness of the eggs she collects from her backyard flock of chickens, and that someday she will kiss Bryce Loski. Ever since she saw Bryce's baby blues back in second grade, Juli has been smitten. Unfortunately, Bryce has never felt the same. Frankly, he thinks Juli Baker is a little weird--after all, what kind of freak raises chickens and sits in trees for fun? Then, in eighth grade, everything changes. Bryce begins to see that Juli's unusual interests and pride in her family are, well, kind of cool. And Juli starts to think that maybe Bryce's brilliant blue eyes are as empty as the rest of Bryce seems to be. After all, what kind of jerk doesn't care about other people's feelings about chickens and trees? With Flipped, mystery author Wendelin Van Draanen has taken a break from her Sammy Keyes series, and the result is flipping fantastic. Bryce and Juli's rants and raves about each other ring so true that teen readers will quickly identify with at least one of these hilarious feuding egos, if not both. A perfect introduction to the adolescent war between the sexes.
Rated PG for language and some thematic material.

    M: in other words your people (the Jews) were nnithog more than economic middlemen, doing the least amount of work (producing nnithog) yet getting a large chunk of the profit (even though they actually didn't produce anything, remember). Yup, that about sums up the Jewish economic role right there parasitism pure and simple.And no I won't harp on about Gen. U.S. Grant's attempted mass-expulsion of your kin-folk as a class in 1862 from no less than three Southern states because of their attempt to corner and/or otherwise manipulate the cotton market but of course Honest Abe' was there to save the day again!Next why don't you tell us about the secret relationship between Blacks and Jews' in The South, about how the earliest synagogues and largest Jewish communities were in places like Charleston [SC], Newport [RI], and New Orleans [LA], which also were coincidentally' the cities where nearly all of America's African slaves were imported in to. Seems to me and many other honest scholars that America's Jews were extremely prominent organizers, facilitators, and middlemen in that trade as well, they just had so many contacts with their Sephardic cousins over there in the UK and Holland along with North Africa ya know, it was like one big happy Jew triangular trade the trade in Africans.Human trafficking still looms large in Jewish society, in fact. Israel is a world center of human trafficking they specialize in young and beautiful White women/girls from Eastern Europe along with young and beautiful Arab girls/women from all over the Middle East too. Haven't you heard?

    During a time where we are so quick to judge one another with superficial perception, this movie reminded me of the importance of seeing beyond the immediate - to perhaps wonder why with compassion to develop understanding of others. I loved this movie!!!!! Too bad it didn't do better at the box office. I believe the advertising could have been much better!!!!! Maybe mention the concept of human interactions more than the relation between a young boy and girl. The commercials I say undermined the true brillance of this film. Well done Mr. Reiner!!!!!!! I feel very happy that there is a Hollywood director with such a beautiful heart. I look forward to more films from you and will certainly buy Flipped when it is released in DVD. Thanks again!
