Beverly Cleary’s 1955 kids’ novel Beezus and Ramona has generated seven sequels and a legion of fans. In the G-rated big-screen version, newcomer Joey King stars as the unintentionally troublesome Ramona Quimby, while Selena Gomez (Wizards of Waverly Place) is her long-suffering older sister, Beezus. Bridget Moynahan, a fan of the series as a kid, plays their mom: ”All my girlfriends are like, ‘I can’t believe you’re playing Mrs. Quimby!”’
