Diary of a Wimpy Kid

I'll be famous one day, but for now I'm stuck in middle school with a bunch of morons


Diary of a Wimpy Kid
Based on the internationally-bestselling series of children's books, this film owes at least a small debt to the TV series The Wonder Years. Our hero is a young boy in junior high, trying desperately to fit in and be popular. He has to deal with the usual problems of bullies, cliques, a nasty older brother, and friend baggage, while learing important lessons about life.

Parental Guidance.
Comedy, Family.

Roger Ebert quote iconHere is a family movie you don't need a family to enjoy. You must, however, have been a wimpy kid. Most kids are wimpy in their secret hearts. Those that never were grow up to be cage fighters.

Tomatometer quote iconUnlike its bestselling source material, Diary of a Wimpy Kid fails to place a likable protagonist at the center of its middle-school humor -- and its underlying message is drowned out as a result.
