Synopsis


Diary of a Wimpy Kid
Hapless preteen Greg Heffley (Zachary Gordon) endures bullies, swirlies, morons, and wedgies while navigating the treacherous world of middle school and recording his traumas in his personal journal in this family-oriented comedy inspired by author Jeff Kinney's best-selling series of illustrated novels. Try as he might, Greg just can't understand who thought it was a good idea to place kids who haven't even hit their first growth spurt in the same school as kids who get a five-o’clock shadow by lunch time. Realizing that he'll have to get creative if he hopes to survive until high school, Greg concocts a series of get-cool-quick schemes that all go hopelessly awry. Despite the fact that he's viewed as a dork by his peers, Greg never loses hope that someday, when all is said and done, he'll be able to look back on his middle school experiences and laugh. Steve Zahn and Rachael Harris co-star in this comedy from Hotel for Dogs director Thor Freudenthal. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

    Awesome Movie!!

    This movie brought me back to middle school times. I'm an adult now. But this movie was highly entertaining. I can still relate to a lot of it, even though I am an adult and I don't have the same situations any more. But this movie makes it easy to remember. Middle school is a simpler time in your life. And this movie paints that picture very well. I don't mean they dumbed it down. This movie was smart with a very good message: "Never turn on your friends". What I mean is it shows how kids worry about simpler things in middle school. And they are frequently hilarious, just like the entirety of this movie. Zachary Gordon did an A+ job as Greg. I can't wait to see them all back in the sequel, and the one after that and the one after that! I give this a 10/10!

    This movie was actually a lot better than I expected, and had some hilarious moments. I can relate to some of the things that happened to Greg. I have not read the book, so I couldn't compare it. 12 year old Greg Heffley is nervous about starting middle school. Him and his dorky best friend, Rowley Jefferson try to fit in and become popular, but that's easier said than done. Throughout the school year, Greg and Rowley come up with weird ways to become popular like being a Safety Patrol officer, wrestling, and performing in epic school plays. In order to truly appreciate this film, you either need to be a parent, or think from the perspective of a kid. I highly recommend DIARY OF A WIMPY KID!!!

    As I wrote in my previous review: "The stories are a great way to capture children's attention, keep them focused, and leave them wanting more. In a digital age where kids prefer playing games on tablets rather than expanding their reading and study skills, this series helps because it will most probably make them want to read the source material that the video is based on. A great investment in their lives, it is!"

    I seen the previews for this movie a while back and my oldest daughter told me she wanted to see it. I told her that I thought it looked silly, but I ended up renting it at first and we watched it and I loved it! I thought is was the perfect growing up movie for my daughter who is getting close to that age. I then bought this movie and the 2 that followed it!

    Having never read the Wimpy kid series of books, I was still pleasantly surprised by how much my little buddies who had read the books took to it. They laughed and thoroughly enjoyed watching their beloved book come to life. I guess that for a certain age bracket, the movie fulfills their need.

    My son just finished the book. This adaptation is almost identical to the source material. The Story teaches kids to stop being self centered and appreciate your friends for who they are.

    We didn't watch the extra's but the movie was great....everything we expected and more. It was a little slow for adults but the belly laughs that came out of my kids were priceless. This is a good family movie or movie night movie for a small or large group.

    My child loves these books and was happy to see the series come to movies. However he was a little disappointed with the movie, but did enjoy watching it never the less.
