Diary of a Wimpy Kid review
This movie exceeded all of my good expectations. It was great! The director Thor Freudenthal did much better than I thought he would. I can relate his middle school to mine. It had a couple of cheesey jokes, yes but it had more really funny ones than the cheesey ones. I thought this was very well casted too. A lot of people reviewing this thinks Zach Gordon, (the kid who plays greg) is too young but actually, he looks about the size of a lot of 6th graders at my school. You don't have to read the books for this movie if you want to enjoy it. You can just go. For those of you who are concerned that the film is nothing like the book, it stays pretty close. I probably rate this movie 7.5/10.
