Quotes

Bess: [looks at Nancy while she is pulling out her notebook from her purse and points at her] I know that look. Like in the third grade, I know that look.
George: You snag a scoop?
Nancy: [serious expression as she writes in notebook] More like a bite on one of those tiny plastic spoons... and something tastes funny.

Couldn't Have Captured Nancy Drew Any Better
4 March 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"Nancy Drew" was the most accurate portrayal of Nancy Drew I have ever seen. Though it was set in modern times instead of the 50s like the book series, the storyline was incredible and the mystery suspenseful. Maggie Lawson was the perfect Nancy Drew, capturing the beloved heroine's thirst for mystery and her confidence, glamour, and intelligence. Nancy Drew's father was protective and loving. Bess and George were played perfectly, and the invented characters were a nice edition to the story. Unlike the Nancy Drew movie that stars Emma Roberts as a brunette (Hair color is usually not important, but Nancy Drew is an icon), fidgety Nany Drew, this movie showed who Nancy Drew really was, blonde hair and all, and was incredible for a TV movie. Nancy Drew's first year of college is one that I will not soon forget.
