Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Comedy - This is a comedy aimed at the pre-teen/early-teen set, especially boys. Steve Zahn, the one really known star here, has limited screen time. Some gross-out humor may give parents some pause, but otherwise this is safe viewing for kids of all ages.

OPINION GRAPH

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

Based on a theater exit polling of 91 moviegoers:
CHILDREN:They loved "Diary of a Wimpy Kid."
TEENS:The three males enjoyed this movie quite a bit. Five if the seven females loved it and two rated it "Good," which equals average.
TWENTYSOMETHINGS:Three of the five males enjoyed it very much. Another one rated it average and one was disappointed. Six of the eight females enjoyed it very much and, like the males, one rated it average and one was disappointed.
ADULTS:For this type of movie, these are some decent reviews. Half the males and nearly half the females loved "Diary of a Wimpy Kid." Virtually all the rest rated it "Good/Average," which is actually quite good considering this is a children's movie. This makes "Diary of a Wimpy Kid" a movie for the entire family.


D ETAILED S TORYLINE
To Greg Heffley, middle school is the dumbest idea ever invented. It's a place rigged with hundreds of social landmines, not the least of which are morons, wedgies, swirlies, bullies, lunchtime banishment to the cafeteria floor – and a festering piece of cheese with nuclear cooties. To survive the never-ending ordeal and attain the recognition and status he feels he so richly deserves, Greg devises an endless series of can't-miss schemes, all of which, of course, go awry. And he's getting it all down on paper, via a diary – "it's NOT a diary, it's a journal!” Greg insists, preferring the less-sissyfied designation – filled with his opinions, thoughts, tales of family trials and tribulations, and (would-be) schoolyard triumphs. "One day when I'm famous,” writes Greg, "I'll have better things to do than answer peoples' stupid questions all day.” So was born the Wimpy Kid's diary.
