Beginning that day, and for the next six years, young Bryce (Callan McAuliffe) does everything he can to keep his outspoken wannabe girlfriend at arm’s length…which isn’t easy since they go to the same school and live across the street from each other.
Smart, dreamy, independent and willing to stand up for what she believes in, Juli (Madeline Carroll) is different from anyone else he knows and, frankly, it’s a little overwhelming. What’s a guy supposed to do when a girl tells him his hair smells like watermelon or wants him to sit in a tree for the spectacular view? There’s just no telling what Juli will do next, and Bryce is one guy who’d rather be safe than sorry.
Though disappointed by Bryce’s unwillingness to see things her way, or even to see the things in life she finds most meaningful, Juli continues to give her potential dreamboat the benefit of the doubt. Until those doubts stack up so high that she finally thinks maybe she was wrong about him.
It’s just about the same time Bryce starts to think maybe he was wrong about her, too. But is he too late?
The coming-of-age romantic comedy “Flipped,” from director Rob Reiner, takes Bryce and Juli from Grade School to Junior High, through triumph and disaster, family drama and first love, as they make the discoveries that will define who they are—and who they are to each other.
“Flipped” stars Madeline Carroll (“Swing Vote”) as Juli, and Callan McAuliffe (Australian TV’s “Comedy, Inc.”) as Bryce. Rebecca De Mornay (“Wedding Crashers”) and Anthony Edwards (“ER”) star as Bryce’s parents, Patsy and Steven Loski; and Emmy Award nominee John Mahoney (“Frasier”) as his grandfather, Chet Duncan. Penelope Ann Miller (TNT’s “Men of a Certain Age”) and Emmy Award nominee Aidan Quinn (HBO’s “Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee”) star as Juli’s parents, Trina and Richard Baker; and Kevin Weisman (“Alias”) as her Uncle Daniel.
“Flipped” is directed by Oscar® nominee Rob Reiner (“A Few Good Men”) and produced by Reiner and Alan Greisman, who most recently collaborated on “The Bucket List.” The screenplay is by Rob Reiner & Andrew Scheinman (Oscar®-nominated producer, “A Few Good Men”), based on the novel by renowned author Wendelin Van Draanen. Martin Shafer, Liz Glotzer and David Siegel serve as executive producers.
