Product Description

Carolyn Keene's most loved character - Nancy Drew - finally makes it onto celluloid in this 2007 movie. For generations of fans worldwide, the name Nancy Drew is synonymous with adventure. This young amateur detective has a mind of her own, a passion for solving mysteries and a reputation for getting into - and out of - some very scary situations.
Emma Roberts stars as the resourceful teen detective, who leaves her friendly hometown of River Heights for the West Coast and enrolls at Hollywood High. There, her unique personal style immediately sets her apart from her self-absorbed, fast-living peers, especially reigning mean girls Inga and Trish, who can't quite figure her out but know that everything about her is different. Their less-than-warm reception might bother the average new girl in town, but not Nancy. She has more important things to think about - namely, a brand new mystery. Even though she promised her worried Dad (Tate Donovan as Carson Drew) that she'd quit the "sleuthing" business, it isn't long before Nancy gets a lead on one of the greatest unsolved cases of all time: the mysterious circumstances surrounding the death of famous actress Dehlia Draycott.

Stills from Nancy Drew


From Amazon.co.uk

Nancy Drew is an iconic girl detective created by Carolyn Keene with a passion for mystery and all things old. The small-town Nancy Drew (played by Julia Roberts' niece Emma Roberts) is about to experience a serious case of culture shock as she heads to Hollywood on an extended business trip with her father Carson Drew (Tate Donovan, The OC) and prepares to join the 21st century (well, sort of) at Hollywood High. Having promised her father that she'll give up sleuthing in favour of becoming a "normal" teenager, Nancy tries her best to resist the lure of the age-old mystery of famous actress Dehlia Draycott's (Laura Harring, Mulholland Drive) death, but living in Dehlia's old booby-trapped mansion full of clues proves too powerful a force for Nancy to resist. Feeling completely out of place with high school peers who prove self-absorbed and obsessed with fashion, Nancy makes an unlikely friend in 12-year-old Corky (Josh Flitter), the brother of one of the meanest girls at school. Hormones and hero worship land Corky right in the middle of Nancy's dangerous detective work and inspire some good old-fashioned jealousy when Nancy's close friend Ned (Max Thieriot) visits from River Heights. Nancy's deductive skills are as sharp as ever, and her inspired detective work will profoundly impact the lives of complete stranger Jane Brighton (Rachael Leigh Cook, She's The One), her own father, and a host of others. Offering a faster pace for modern audiences than the classic Nancy Drew films, this 2007 movie is sure to enthrall a whole new generation of tweens and teens while simultaneously living up to their parents', or older siblings' expectations. --Tami Horiuchi

I bought this looking for a slightly more grown up film for my ten year old and this fits the tween market perfectly. Not too scary, not too much smoochy stuff and not too babyish. The story keeps them gripped and definitely made my ten year old feel that wee bit more mature than her younger sister.

Just a pleasant film of the infamous Nancy Drew and Emma Roberts does a great performance.

Little note before buying - its a young teen film, maybe a great idea for a girls sleepover. its a fun, harmless movie

This story is a teen classic basicly filled with everything if you want to know, for a girl that is! ...fashion,style,mystery,orgnisation,the villians,the friends and much more.
Nancy fills the story to top to bottom. The outline of the story is she is heading off for a hoilday with her dad(as her mums died) which they rent and Nancy picks the house, and of course, knowing her it's one with a years ago death and mystery! What's a girl to do -investergate.
Years and years ago their lived a famous actress "Dehlia Dreycott", who died by someone else's doing who was found in the pool. That was the same house Nancy's in. Ohhhhhhhhhh.
It's strange and as Nancy's a star and has worked out many other cases will she work this one out. A tough challenge huh.
She finds clues, puts them together like a puzzle and she has a story. Of course the story would be nothing without her friends helping.
I really ennjoyed this movie and if you get it I hope you get it too.In some places it gets scary but it's a natural plot line twist. It's a story for the whole family. Enjoy!!!!

Format: DVD
Having been addicted to the books as a child, I was thrilled to discover this DVD and very much looked forwards to watching it.

Sadly, I was somewhat disappointed with the results. Although an intriguing film in its own right, it just wasn't the Nancy Drew I had pictured; and not the Nancy Drew that I remembered reading about in Carolyn Keene's books.

Nancy was made to appear so retro that she was unbelievable as a teenager. Carson Drew looked nothing like the person I had pictured in my mind - and came over as far too young and attractive. (If he really looked like that, why was there never a second Mrs Drew?)! The plot was a little drawn out and rather laughable in places. However, on the other hand, the baddies were belivably bad, and the conclusion to the plot was great.

My conclusion - an enjoyable film for those who don't remember the books or the TV series from the late 1970s.

Format: DVD
It probably seemed a clever idea on paper: Nancy Drew arrives in modern LA but she's still the wholesome, penny-loafer-wearer of the original books. She's square, she eats cupcakes and knows First Aid; the LA kids meanwhile are jaded, bitchy and fashion-obsessed. In other words it's a culture-clash, fish-out-of-water comedy in the style of Crocodile Dundee. Or, indeed, Back to the Future: although the film doesn't actually show her climbing out of a time-machine, that's the basic conceit.

Perhaps if they hadn't laboured the joke so much, and given Nancy just a hint of old-fashionedness instead of the full Alice-band treatment, it might have worked better. Perhaps. But the point about Nancy Drew is that she's always been a modern girl -- she was in the 1920s and she was in the 1950s. Maybe in the decadent 2000s the writers felt that Nancy could only be presented as an ironic, kitsch figure from the past. If so (and I'm speculating, of course) I don't think it's true. One of the things that strikes me when watching a show like Buffy the Vampire Slayer is how straight the kids are. If them, then why not 14-year-old Nancy too?

The other problem with this throw-back Nancy is that she's simply too bland. It really is difficult to root for someone who, in a car-chase, won't go above the speed limit. It's not a bad joke, but it makes her look silly.

Given all that, I thought Emma Roberts made a good Nancy Drew. She certainly has the requisite self-possession and charm. It's just a shame that the script and the direction reduced her to a two-dimensional figure. And the story itself was pretty ho-hum.

Let's hope they do another one with Roberts but drop the irony. A modern Nancy Drew is perfectly do-able without it.

Before watching this movie I had of course heard of the character Nancy Drew but had never read/watched the character in anything. I picked up this movie based on the cameo by Bruce Willis and I'm kind of glad I did. It isn't a great film by any means, but Emma Roberts is very good as Nancy Drew and I really liked the way they kept her character very 1950's in style and outlook, from her dialogue, to her car, to her clothes. The story itself is rather formulaic and the supporting cast are generally mediocre. The cameo with Bruce Willis made it worth the cheap purchase for me as the rapore between him playing himself and Nancy Drew at the film set makes for one of the funnier sections of the film. I'm sure Nancy Drew fans and teenage girls will love this film, but generally speaking, it was average and is worth a rental only unless you're a big Willis fan. 3/5
