Ruefully Painful

Where I come from middle school is referred to as Junior High School and those are not years I care to relive. Face it folks, if you're not part of the cool kids clique life can be pretty rotten for you. I remember for myself going from baseball cards to supposedly having an interest in girls. Faking it was something you had to do most definitely to survive Andries Hudde Junior High to Midwood High School. At least I had to fake it.

Zachary Gordon is like so many kids, just trying to find his niche to fit in. He has an older brother Devon Bostick who's no help at all and parents who just don't quite get it. For instance the fine points of difference between journal and diary. Gordon tries a lot of things and nothing quite works out. He's also got a chubby friend Robert Capron for whom puberty is a late arrival and he's not socially graceful.

But in the world of middle school unexpected things occur and it's Capron who wins acceptance first. But in the end Gordon shows some real character that says he's going to come out fine as an adult.

Diary Of A Wimpy Kid is based on a best selling book popular with the juvenile set. Some of the film while funny might also be ruefully painful for many adults who watch.

Unlikeable kid gets one right in the end

Greg Heffley (Zachary Gordon) is starting middle school. His best friend is Rowley (Robert Capron) is a chubby awkward kid. Greg is selfish, deluded, and generally a bad friend. He can't help embarrass himself. His big brother Rodrick (Devon Bostick) loves bullying him.

Greg is a jerk and clueless. The best part about him is his friendship with Rowley. That saves him as a character. However most of the time, he's a horrible person and learns nothing from his mistakes.

The good thing is that in the end, he learns the lesson and redeems himself. It's a little late. I would prefer him to make the right decision every once in a while. But getting one right at the end is good enough.

This is also notable for Chloë Grace Moretz as a kid one year ahead of Greg. She serves as a conscience for Greg which he almost never listens to.

Don't eat the cheese...

I found "Diary of a Wimpy Kid" to be a rather good movie, with entertainment for the entire family.

The story told here is a nice story about lots of things, including friendship, standing up for whom you are, trying to fit in and of course the story of the cheese on the ground (watch the movie and you will know what I mean). I haven't read the book, so I wasn't familiar with the characters, story or anything beforehand. But still, I found this movie to be quite nice. And anyone who ever attended school will be able to recognize lots of things that could happen in real life as well.

As for the cast of actors/actresses, well there was a lot of nice performances from the children, especially Zachary Gordon, playing Greg Heffley, and also Robert Capron, playing Rowley Jefferson. These two boy had really good on-screen chemistry and genuinely seemed to be best of buddies. And of course, Chloe Moretz, playing Angie Steadman, did a good job, despite having a rather minor role in the movie. It was, however, somewhat of a surprise to see Steve Zahn in a movie like this, playing Frank Heffley, Gregs' father. But he sort of seemed nice for that role, adding a strangely odd quirk to the father character.

Throughout the movie there is a bunch of funny moments and scenes, where you will be laughing, because it is funny, but also sometimes awkward. And that touch of comedy really made the movie work quite well. Of course, the cast had a lot of to do with chemistry of the characters and how they came off on the screen.

I think that "Diary of a Wimpy Kid" can be equally enjoyed by adults and children alike, because despite having an almost all-out children cast, there is something to learn from the movie for us all. There are some nice morales being told in the movie. I was genuinely pleased with the movie and enjoyed it.
