Diary of a Wimpy Kid

diary of a wimpy kid official poster

Release year: 2010

Director: Thor Freudenthal

Screenwriter: Jackie Filgo, Jeff Filgo, Gabe Sachs, Jeff Judah, Jeff Kinney (novel)

Starring: Zachary Gordon, Robert Capron, Rachael Harris, Steve Zahn, Devon Bostick, Chloë Grace Moretz, Connor Fielding, Laine MacNeill

12-year-old Freg (Gordon) gets a journal (not diary!) from his mum (Harris) and scribble down the hardship of gaining popularity when your big brother (Bostick) is a jerk and your best friend a nerd (Capron).

The movie adaptation of Jeff Kinney’s bestselling teen novel stays true to its origin by mixing the charming simple cartoons from the novel into the movie and by keeping the humour intact. Like the novel, the movie gives a good insight into human nature, especially that of an almost teen, without every patronizing its younger audience. But the transferring of the simple cartoon style to film the story looses some of the charm it has in paper. The cast all does a good job and fans of the book will enjoy recognizing their favourite characters in ‘real-life’ form, while wondering why they have created an extra one with Angie, but the movie never manage to reach the same height of funny.

Moviegeek info:

Rowley’s mom is played by Robert Capron’s real life mom Kaye Capron.
