You know that old line, “These are the best days of your life”? Well, Greg Heffley knows better! The 11-year-old wimp thinks middle school is the dumbest idea ever invented. Find out if he survives the punishment in Kidzworld’s movie review of Diary of a Wimpy Kid.


Diary Of A Wimpy Kid Movie Rating: 3


Nerdy Guys Finish Last

Greg Heffley has it rough. When his brothers aren’t humiliating him, he’s getting ignored by his parents or being forced to endure the terrors of gym class. But despite Greg’s low ranking on the cool meter, he still aspires to get elected a yearbook “class favorite.” But when “you are who you hang with,” Greg’s chubby, uncool friend Rowley doesn’t seem like a smart option for his best friend. But all that changes when Rowley begins to outcool Greg! How does Rowley do it? By just being himself.


Based On The Book

Diary of a Wimpy Kid started as an online cartoon and Jeff Kinney’s hilariously painful stories were soon made into a popular series of illustrated novels like Rodrick Rules and The Last Straw to name a few—a new book is due out in November. The movie does a great job of weaving Kinney’s drawings into the live action scenes—so the movie feels close to the original books.

The Bottom Line

Diary of a Wimpy Kid is jam-packed with gross-outs galore, cringe-worthy scenes of total embarrassment and just enough redeeming moments for the geeky heroes to keep you from giving up on middle school altogether. The pacing can get a bit slow and sometimes the gross-outs get too gross, but overall Diary of a Wimpy Kid is actually pretty wholesome! And if there’s a lesson to be learned it’s that the really cool kids don’t care what the other kids think.
