.: Plot Summary :.
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
.: My Comment :.
Be yourself is the most important thing. Don’t try to be someone else just because you want to try to impressed other people. That’s what I learn from this movie. Greg cares so much about his image and try to act cool in front of others. He even tries to change his best friend Rowley’s image and personality just so he won’t get in his way to be a popular student at school. But, this just makes his friends hate him even more. Rowley in the other hand is an honest and genuine person and feel comfortable with his image and personality. He cares so much about Greg, but Greg’s selfishness and insensitive feelings upset Rowley so much. So, conflict arises between them. In friendship, I really think that, we have to care about our friends’ feelings. We can’t put their feelings aside just to satisfy our own feeling. Friendship is all about accepting and to be accepted as your real self and friendship will be lasting forever if we follow this rule. All in all, Diary of a Wimpy Kid is a hilarious, fun, and enjoyable movie to watch. This movie also makes me think of school. It was such a great memory and so much fun!!
Favorite Quote: I’ll be famous one day, but for know I’m stuck in middle school with a bunch of morons- Greg Heffley
