I have to admit, I had heard about the book, Diary of a Wimpy Kid, but I have not yet read it. After watching this really cute and funny film, I can’t wait to get my hands on the book. The book is perfect for a family night.

The movie along with the move centers around Greg Heffley, a soon to be middle schooler, along with his best friend, Rowley Jefferson. Greg hopes that middle school will be different and becomes focused on a quest to become popular. The more he tries, the more he fails. It is a funny movie and I think one that we can all relate to. It deals with the awkwardness that comes with junior high/middle school, friendships and character. I really enjoyed the movie and I think you will too!

The movie is availabe on DVD and Blue Ray on Tuesday, August 3rd  at retailers nationwide.

It’s giveaway time!
