Diary of a Wimpy Kid

2 1/2 stars

How to be cool.

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 peoples' stupid questions all day." So was born the Wimpy Kid's diary. (Source: IMDB)

Megan's Movie Review:
Well.. Personally this is not up my ally of movies. I did not like it because it was just too "kiddish" for me. I would say this would be recommended for 8 year olds. It wasn't as funny as the previews make it look and it was just kind of dumb. But I am sure that children would enjoy it, I just didn't. Some of it was just stupid comedy that, of course, kids would enjoy and find hilarious. I also did not like the morals that were taught in the movies. It taught that you have to be cool or do something cool to be anyone or accepted at school, which is not true. Just be yourself. I didn't like how the brothers would get each other in trouble and not get caught. I felt like it didn't teach you how to be a good friend.

What do you think?

This movie wasn't as good as I thought it would be. I think it would be good though for ages between 8 -12.
