Plot: CIA Agent Evelyn Salt becomes a fugitive when she is accused of being a Russian sleeper agent who will kill the president.

Rotten Tomatoes Freshness: 56%

Ramona and Beezus

Directed by: Elizabeth Allen II

Plot: Based on the books by Beverly Cleary, the plot follows the misadventures of imaginative Ramona Quimby and her big sister Beezus.
