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

"Run, don't walk to take your kids to see this"
19 March 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

My son has been waiting for this movie for months, so as to not disappoint, off we went expecting a lukewarm kiddie movie. NOT THE CASE!!! My husband and I laughed often and loudly. As a elementary physical education teacher, I really enjoyed the take on the middle school coach. It was a charming, off beat and entertaining. It was also especially timely, since my son heads off to middle school next year. I left the theatre and called my other teacher-moms with children that loved this series and told them to run, don't walk to see this. Great story,surprisingly clean and enjoyable. Not your typical kids movie. My son told me as we left the movie that the story didn't exactly follow the books, but as we all know, they never do. The transition from a cartoon book to on-screen real life people was wonderful! This will join our home library when it comes out. And "yes" I do plan on buying my son a shirt with our faces screened on that says "I love my Mommy" for his first day of middle school. Well, only if he gets out of line between now and then ; )
