I’m Happy to Report…

that, so far, my test group is pro the new Nancy Drew movie.

In a glowing review of the movie in last week’s paper, I nervously wondered:

it’s hard for me to tell whether this entertaining movie is ultimately too square for its tween audience. I hope not. In this age of loud CGI spectacles like Spider-Man and Harry Potter, this comparatively low-fi fare has the makings of a backlash hit.

Well, a friend of mine took their 13-year-old kid sister to see it last night at the Metro in the U. District and the word is kid sister loved it … and was scared too, during the creeping around in the underground hallway scene!

Better yet, my friend loved the movie tooŚreporting they grabbed their sister’s arm in fright when !SPOILER ALERT! Nancy discovers her cell phone wasn’t a gift from her dad after all, but rather, the bad guys sent it to her on the sly so they could track her whereabouts…which they do!

Ever hear of a spoiler alert?

I discovered while reading Entertainment Weekly that this movie was co-written by former Seattleite (and my ex-boss!) Tiffany Paulsen. She was co-owner of Cinema Espresso at the bottom of Queen Anne hill (now the site of Cafe Ladro) in the early-mid '90s, and had some small acting gigs, including "3rd Girl Killed" in one of the Friday the 13th movies.

I'm glad to see that she is having some success now as a writer.
