One crazy diary
3 August 2010 | by (Howell, MI USA) – See all my reviews

The main character is played by Patrick Fugit and he does a decent job. He is a nerd that makes little things or comes up with cool ideas. He writes a book about changing the world, but cannot find the ending. His book is taken and turned into something big that makes everyone around him think including a girl he likes. The story was pretty interesting and I did enjoy it front start to find. But there were scenes thrown in that left the film boring at points. There is an OK cast for the film and I will say that Matthew Lillard was very horrible in the film. His character was very strange he could just not play him right. This is a light teen movie comedy, but at least it has a better story line than most teen comedies you see. Most rely on horrible scenes or nudity. This movie was about teen life, but actually had an interesting story to go along with it. Not a bad film.
