[[caption-width-right:250:A Little Sister Goes A Long Way]]
The 2010 [[FilmOfTheBook movie adaptation]] for the ''Literature/RamonaQuimby'' series of books. Instead of adapting a single book, the movie hits on most of the major story lines of the series and compresses everything into a single year (the series takes place over a span of six years).

----
'''The film provides examples of:'''

* ActorAllusion: At the expense of Music/SelenaGomez.
* AdaptationalAttractiveness: Beezus in the books isn't ugly, per se, but somewhat gawky and acne-ridden like a typical adolescent. Not so here.
* CompressedAdaptation: The movie hits on most the major plot events of the books by making them all happen in a relatively short time period.
* EmbarrassingNickname:
--> '''Beezus''': Who could ever love someone named Beezus?
--> '''Ramona''': Jesus?
* GoshDarnItToHeck: As in ''[[Literature/RamonaQuimby Ramona the Brave]]'', Ramona is so angry she threatens to say a bad word. So she shouts "GUTS!", but rather than get in trouble, she gets laughed at.
* LampshadeHanging: Near the beginning of the film, Mrs. Quimby says "Henry Huggins? I haven't heard that name in awhile." The Ramona books were a {{Spinoff}} of the Henry Huggins series and he was prominently featured in the first few books. His role gradually decreased and by the end, the time when the film is set, he hadn't been mentioned for awhile.
* NeverTrustATrailer: While the movie has a lot of humor in it, the trailers make it seem like a slapstick comedy.
* NonIndicativeTitle: Despite the title being an inversion of the first book's title, that book has the least amount of material used in the movie, and much of the film's plot actually comes from the fourth book ''Ramona and Her Father''.
* PromotedToLoveInterest: Henry Huggins becomes Beezus's LoveInterest in the movie, even though they're just friends in the books.
* TheRunaway: Ramona
* {{Tagline}}: "A little sister goes a long way."
