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

Why would you let your kids watch this?!
17 August 2013 | by See all my reviews

This movie takes the cake for being one of the most offensive kids movies ever made. It teaches them bad morals and accepts bullying as normal and fun. Its based off some books with doodle sketches in them and is about Greg who is bullied every day by his brother and others and how he has awkward stupid friends who obviously look like aliens. Now Im not blaming the kid actors here because Zachary Gorden does a pretty good job as Greg. The kid actors try hard to work with a sh- I'm sorry IMDb, Awful script. The worst parts are when the characters blatantly lie to each other and be mean. This is one of the worst and most unpleasant parts of the film because I do not want to see that. I want to see a good kids comedy. NOT THIS. This is one of the worst kids movies ever.

21/100 D-
