I’m going to keep this short and sweet: I LOVED Diary of a Wimpy Kid, as did my 10 yr old AND the five girls we had over for a slumber party the other night.
It’s a hilarious movie that stays very close to the Diary of a Wimpy Kid book and the young actors give great performances. I found myself wishing the movie would continue when it was over because it was so engaging.
If you have kids in the 7-13 age range, this movie will definitely make them laugh their heads off, as well as learn a valuable lesson about being yourself and respecting your friends. Older kids will likely also enjoy it although they may outwardly dismiss it as a little kid movie because you know, that’s how teens are… *insert motherly eyeroll*
Anyway, this moms gives Diary of a Wimpy Kid (DVD) two enthusiastic thumbs UP!
