Disclosure: ** “ Warner Bros. Home Entertainment provided me with a free copy of the Blu-ray I reviewed in this Blog Post. The opinions I share are my own.”**
First off, I am a Nancy Drew fanatic from way back. I collected every book I could get my hands on and loved all of the stories/mysteries. I grew up on Nancy Drew so I was excited when I found out they were coming out with an updated movie. Sophie Lillis is just adorable with the prettiest red hair and bright blue eyes. She immediately captured my heart not very far into the movie. Since I was a long time reader of Nancy Drew I knew the hidden staircase reference from one of the books from the series. This also had me start wondering could this be the start of a new beautiful movie series? I guess time will tell.
I also love that the movie is appropriate for all ages. There is a little bit of ‘scare’ like mystery type but nothing too scary. I love that they touch on cyber-bullying and friendship also. If you love a family night movie, this is one you will enjoy!
“Sparkling and lovable, this tween-friendly film ably updates Nancy Drew for the “future is female” generation.”

After the death of his wife, Carson Drew decides to leave Chicago behind and make a fresh start with his daughter in River Heights. But for 16-year-old Nancy Drew, life in a small town is mighty dull. She longs for excitement, adventure, and the chance to make a difference. Nancy gets that opportunity when she is asked to help solve the ghostly activity at the Twin Elms mansion. Can she help explain the creaking footsteps, exploding lightbulbs, and the ominous creature? Is it the handiwork of high-school bully Derek Barnes? Or is it possible that the ghost of original owner Malcolm Colfax is back for revenge? Recruiting her best friends George and Bess, along with local “mean girl” Helen, Nancy Drew is on the case!
