Diary of a Wimpy Kid Films
It is so hard to do a movie like this well. It doesn't dumb down. It doesn't patronize. It knows something about human nature. It isn't as good as " A Christmas Story ," as few movies are, but it deserves a place in the same sentence. Here is a family movie you don't need a family to enjoy. You must, however, have been a wimpy kid.
It is the only film in the series to be directed by Freudenthal, who was replaced by David Bowers for the rest of the installments. Greg Heffley , a small boy who constantly fights with his brother Rodrick and younger brother Manny, is apprehensive about beginning middle school. On his first day, he quickly discovers the ups and downs, such as the missing stall doors in the boys' bathroom and the difficulties of obtaining a seat during lunch. During P. Greg also meets Angie, a girl who isolates herself from the other students to survive. Greg states his intention of becoming the most popular student in school. The next day, Greg signs up for wrestling but suffers back-to-back humiliating losses against Fregley, a weird outcast, and Patty Farrell, Greg's arch-enemy from elementary school.
