The hysterically funny, best-selling book comes to life in this smash-hit family comedy! Greg Heffley is headed for big things, but first he has to survive the scariest, most humiliating experience of any kid's life – middle school! That won't be easy, considering he's surrounded by hairy-freckled morons, wedgie-loving bullies and a mouldy slice of cheese with nuclear cooties!
Dire - avoid like the plague.
- Diary of a Wimpy Kid review by RP
I've seen some poor films in my time but this has to be one of the worst. Not only is it boring and unfunny but the characters are unlikeable. And it's not just the me – the children I (started) to watch it with sat stony-faced and after about 30 minutes we switched it off. While I realise that it's an American film about American kids in an American school and based on a comic rather than real life (heaven help us if it's reality), few things have emphasised for me the cultural gap between our countries as much as this. Avoid like the plague. Rated as 1/5 stars but only because I can't give it zero.
