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

well i've seen worse adult films.
24 July 2010 | by See all my reviews

My son likes these books and had me sit down and watch this with him. He said he liked it a lot and it was very similar to what was going on in print. Chloe Moretz and Steve Zahn round out the cast that shows the ups and downs of a boy and his best friend as they journey into middle school for the first time. Apparently there is a sequel in the works for the second book in the series due out in 2011. Needless to say my son is highly anticipating seeing that one as well. I thought it was a cute movie although more for his age group. In fact it was enjoyable and find the more stuff on his level i am watching lately i am enjoying more then the garbage that Hollywwod is putting out, how sad is that?
