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

Review from a 13 year old
12 January 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Background:I am a 13 year old, which means Im in the target audience in this film. I also have seen some of the worst films ever, like "Star Worms 2", "Monster A GoGo", and "Night of the Lepus". When I heard hey were making a DOAWK movie, I thought it would be fun! Boy, was I wrong! This is one of the un-funniest films ever! Not sure if this is worse than Vampires Suck, but it makes Disaster Movie look like Airplane. While this film follows the books, it feels entirely different. While the books gave a funny story that 13 and 14 year old's can relate to, this film only serves to exploit middle school like 70's blaxploitation movies did to blacks.Why does every character look like a 7 year old? Ansewer: So they could get younger kids into the theater while still using the title to pander to young teens. I was offended by the way they portray middle school! "The Cheese Touch"? Kids at my school play similar games, note that those kids are in 2nd Grade! And even they don't break friendships over that stupid game! The whole film is about the main character who"Will do anything to be famous!" I assume that that is the only reason he took this role. This kid is so clearly without talent that I cringe at all the lines he has here! If real kids acted like that, the suicide rate int his country alone would go up by at least 60%! And there is no suspense, or drama throughout the whole movie. I don't want to give away spoilers, but lets just say nothing is resolved, clearly hoping for a sequel or 7! In conclusion, do not fall for this films tricky marketing. You will only be disappointed! One star.
