Your first childhood crush, the first time you felt that funny butterflies in your stomach, you wonder why she/him is on your mind all the time. Do you remember you first crush? Rob Reiner's 'Flipped' captures the essence of first love perfectly. Bryce (Callan McAuliffe) is new to the neighborhood and he is greeted by Juli Baker (Madeline Carroll), who instantly falls in love with the cute boy with the mesmerizing eyes. The movie is narrated from viewpoint of both Bryce and Juli as they grow up through grade school and get to know each other better. I really liked the way the movie presented both sides of the story, really letting you into the minds of the main characters. 'Flipped' does play the cute emotional card, but it doesn't abuse it to the point of making you feel sick. Watching 'Flipped' felt like watching a group of cute puppies playing with each other. It's so cute that you just can't turn away and you can't help but to smile. So if you like cute puppies, go ahead and give 'Flipped' a try.
