About this movie

A live-action adaptation of Jeff Kinney's best-selling illustrated novel, "Diary of a Wimpy Kid" chronicles the adventures of skinny "middle child" Greg Heffley over the course of a school year, as told through his diary and hand-drawn cartoons. Determined not to remain on the lowest rung of the social ladder during his first year of middle school, the hapless Greg takes several stabs at becoming popular -- including betraying his seemingly uncool best friend -- but when his efforts backfire spectacularly, he realizes that keeping a low profile may not be such a bad idea after all. As Greg says, "One day I'll be rich and famous, but for now I'm stuck in middle school with a bunch of morons." Zachary Gordon as Kinney's wise-cracking hero, Greg Heffley. Rachael Harris and Steve Zahn play Greg's quirky parents.

Awesome adaption to the book. It stayed very true to the book and was funny and enjoyable. Loved the cast, the acting, the comedy moments, and the cheese touch fuss. I also liked how they mixed so animated scenes from the book into the film as well. Very good family film and I highly recommend. Especially if you're a fan of the book series. I don't care how I old I am I love the books and movies and still read and watch them .

This is definitely the best one. Yes, some of the humor is pretty cringe-inducing. But there's also some laugh-out-loud moments that make everything worthwhile. There's a general sweetness to the movie, even with how much of a jerk Greg is. P.S. Chloe Grace Moretz steals the show. This film is bound to put a smile on your face.
