Fun movie, but gets intense at the end (spoilers!)
This movie was fun. I am a big fan of Nancy Drew, but the movie is much different than the books. I would recommend looking at it as a separate character and story, because Carson Drew would never try to get Nancy to stop sluething. There are a few bullies at school, one who has a large crush on Ned, "making out" is mentioned once, and their is one kiss. I find it un exeptable for kids of this age being shown doing such things. The scenes where Nancy is doing research can give off a creepy feeling, because of the music and all the newspaper headings, but it is not too intense. But, I found the scene where Nancy is riding in the car with her father and John Leshing, intense. Because she realizes that John Leshing was the murder. Now she is stuck in the car with a murder, one of his hench men, and a clueless father. John Leshing tries to get the will from Nancy, but she jumps out of the moving vehicle, runs to a neighbor who she knows, and tries to call the police. She sadly doesn't have the time for the hench men is following her. She ends up being caught, but lets them know not to kill her with a gun, to messy, it will leave clues. After that a man comes up to her to strangler her. Overall intense... Nancy is a great role model for young kids because se abviously doesn't care what other kids think of her.
