Plot: 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. Written by Twentieth Century Fox. (source: IMDb)
WitchyPoo’s Review: This movie came highly recommended by my 4 year old nephew. He said, “Aunt WitchyPoo, you just gotta see it. It’s sooooooooo good.” What can I say? I’m a sucker for a cute male with big blue eyes.
I absolutely loved it. It is the cutest funniest movie I’ve seen in ages. The humor is such that kids as well as adults appreciate it. Even the storyline is a sweet lesson in friendship. Go ahead, see it. Don’t be turned off just because it is a kids movie. I think you’ll like it.
Definitely a 4 out of 5 black cat rating on WitchyPoo’s rating scale 😉
