Diary of a Wimpy Kid
Directed by Thor Freudenthal, whose last film was the similarly flawed Hotel For Dogs , it's an admittedly amiable offering, but one that fades all too quickly from the memory.

Saw the "Diary of a Wimpy Kid Movie" and it was just great!! The reviewer for IndieLondon doesn't know his "A__ from a hole in the ground!" Shocked by his stupid review of a very entertaining and fun movie for anyone of any age. The movie was an excellent adaptation of the New York Times Best Selling book. There is so much to relate to in this movie, obviously the reviewer doesn't understand the story at all. The movie flowed well from beginning to end. It was paced well, didn't belittle the experiences of middle school and stayed true to those life experiences that 90% of us lived thru. Anyone who survived middle school can relate, big time, to this movie.
The main character, Greg Heffley, was played superbly by kid actor Zachary Gordon. Taking a cartoon stick figure and making him 3 dimensional was very difficult for the main character and I give Gordon an A+ for his performance. From the disdain the reviewer wrote that he had for this character it just proves how powerful his acting was. Actors who have played more dispicable roles have won academy awards. Gordon led us on a rollercoster ride of emotions in first -liking him, then hating him, then loving him in the end. To create both disdain and positive emotions from an audience for a character is the true sign of a great actor, especially for a kid actor in such a complex role and also shows very good directing. The movie was well cast and the rest of the actors did a fine job.
No matter what age you are from tween to adult, you won't be dissapointed in this movie. It is a fun, entertaining ride and one of the better movies of 2010. The sequel (trailer available on the net)coming out in March looks to be as entertaining or even better than the first movie. Whether you see this movie with a family or alone, this is a "laugh out loud" must see movie.
