A funny look at how a kid tries to become popular in ways that just don’t work. Diary of a Wimpy Kid.

I don’t have a problem with kid movies. I like watching them far more than I like watching horror films. They make more sense and the screaming isn’t done to make my ears bleed. What adds to the fun of seeing Diary of a Wimpy Kid were the kids. When something gross happened there was loud eewwws. There were a lot of gross parts, so there was a lot moments for them to say ew in unison. It made me laugh. I joined sometimes.

There are crazy scenes that had me laughing. One of the costumes of the kids for Halloween made me LOL. The animation (that is present in the books-stick figures and such) was awesome in how they were integrated in Diary of a Wimpy Kid.

I believe it is a fun movie for kids that have read the book and even fun for kids that have not read the book. It is a harmless kid film that is enjoyable for what it is. For adults? I don’t think so. I had a ok time. It was not nearly as entertaining as some kid’s films like Disney or Pixar animation.

The storyline has a good message about being oneself is more important than trying to be what you think everyone else wants, and middle school is a great target audience for that. I believe that is where the confusion starts on who you are. You want to be accepted, but you want to be who you are.

Dairy of a Wimpy Kid was mildly entertaining and the acting was decent. The director’s name is freakin’ cool: THOR! (which I might have mention before...maybe) Oh and it’s not a diary, it’s a JOURNAL!!!! That’s more manly. Duh.
