Ramona Quimby, is a grade-school student with a big imagination. So big, in fact, that she often clashes with her no-nonsense teacher Mrs. Meacham. When Ramona's upbeat dad Robert loses his job, the family - including her teenage sister, Beezus, and their practical-minded mother - must make major adjustments, like dad learning how to run the house. Ramona dreams up various plans to make money so that she can save their house, but because everybody in the family seems too preoccupied to help her with her own worries, she turns to the one person who always has time for her, Aunt Bea. But even Aunt Bea is distracted these days because of her ex-boyfriend - and Quimby family next-door neighbour - Hobart Written by

Did You Know?
Beezus and Ramona first appeared, as supporting characters, in a series of books focused on Henry Huggins. Beverly Cleary
later wrote Beezus and Ramona, which actually focused on Beezus and her family. However, her younger sister Ramona became so popular, that the remaining books focused on Ramona. Beezus is still an important character, and Henry Huggins still appears, but became a secondary character in the series he launched. The names are reversed in the title for this film because of the shift in focus to Ramona. See more
In the scene where Beezus and Hobart are dropping Ramona off at school, a piece of Aunt Bea's hair is sticking out to the side. The camera turns to Ramona and when it comes back to Beezus, her hair is smoothed down. In the next shot of Aunt Bea, it is again sticking out. See more

"Royal Peanut Butter: There's a bit of magic in every jar"!
Is that one of your favorites? That's the rack we gotta get you into, 'cause those TV kids make millions.
Beezus, do you think I could be in a commercial like that?
[Fixing Ramona's hair with a curling iron
Sure, you'd make a great frog.
Hold still. I'm almost done.
It's picture-perfect, right?
Let's be realistic, Ramona. This is a curling iron, not a magic wand.
