User reviews on Diary of a Wimpy Kid
i thought this movie could of been funnier but overall it was a good movie Rowley is a cute chubby boy...Rodrock is so cute..Greg is selfish he was mean but what he did at then end was sweet
i loved it rodrick is hotttttttt!!!!!!!!! i loved the movie
I thought this movie went along okay with the books, but the director could have added a few more details, such as the fact that one of the boys is getting braces, so Greg gets to move up a spot on the popularity chart, and even closer to Bryce. Other than that and a few other things, I thought that this movie was great. I loved the fact that they portrayed middle school to be so trivial and petty, yet so significant and worthwhile, all while keeping with the comedy and horror of it all. So true with middle school.
this was a very good movie and i liked it a lot there were many things and yet i would agree with greg that my middle school years were very terrifieing and gregs brother rodrick his HHHHHHOOOOOOTTTTTT!!!!!! he is rockin out and giving his little brother some advice of how to act in shcool but rowley doesnt know what to do and how to act cool he just is a dumb fat kid if you ask me
It's been over 20 years, yet my middle school years are still the most terror inducing time of my life. Just thinking about the psychological tortures I endured is enough to send me back to my therapist. However, I'm not above laughing at some of the funnier things that happened to me. Maybe that's why I really like Diary of a Wimpy Kid. I allows me to make fun of a time that was anything but.
Based on the illustrated novel by Jeff Kinney, the story follow geeky Greg during his first year in middle school. All Greg wants is to be popular, but everything he does seems to do the exact opposite. Whether it's messing with older kids, hanging out with the wrong crowd, or being a pariah after touching a piece of moldy cheese in the yard (which, more than anything, shows how kids will look for any excuse to put down their peers), everything he does gets him further away from his goal.
The film may be episodic in nature, but let's face it, so was middle school. I only really remember the horrible, funny, or "life-changing" events. So I really didn't mind the structure of this movie. The filmmakers do a good job balancing the angst and humor of middle school, and the young actors aren't those annoying kids we're used to seeing. I may not have liked it the first time, but Diary makes me almost miss middle school. Almost.
