Storyline

To Greg Heffley, middle school is the dumbest idea ever invented. It's a place rigged with hundreds of social landmines, not the least of which are morons, wedgies, swirlies, bullies, lunchtime banishment to the cafeteria floor - and a festering piece of cheese with nuclear cooties. To survive the never-ending ordeal and attain the recognition and status he feels he so richly deserves, Greg devises an endless series of can't-miss schemes, all of which, of course, go awry. And he's getting it all down on paper, via a diary - "it's NOT a diary, it's a journal!" Greg insists, preferring the less-sissyfied designation - filled with his opinions, thoughts, tales of family trials and tribulations, and (would-be) schoolyard triumphs. "One day when I'm famous," writes Greg, "I'll have better things to do than answer people's stupid questions all day." So was born the Wimpy Kid's diary. Written by Twentieth Century Fox

Quotes

Greg Heffley: Rowley, if you had to say what you were ranked in terms of popularity from one to two hundred, where would you put yourself?
Rowley Jefferson: Is two hundred good or bad?
Greg Heffley: I'd say you're somewhere around the 154 mark. I'd put myself around number 19 or 20. I might even have a shot at the top spot by the end of the year. If things will go the way I think they will.
Rowley Jefferson: Who's at the bottom?
Fregley: Hey, guys! Wanna see my secret freckle?

More enjoyable than I expected
30 March 2011 | by (Ladson, SC) – See all my reviews

Unlike most movies dealing with adolescence (especially in school), this one doesn't preach or condescend. And it doesn't try too hard to be a good movie, or take itself seriously (at least not too seriously). What's more: the movie is (mostly) unpredictable. Especially fun is the moldy cheese sequence! It would have been nice to get to know the parents a little more. One quibble though: What exactly is the purpose of Chloe Moretz's character? She seems to only be around to give these two boys advice (or something like that). It's never explained what kind of person she is. Anyway, if you found your middle school years to be anything but satisfying, you will not only enjoy the picture, but relate to it as well.

*** out of ****
