Meet the kid who made “wimpy” cool in a family comedy based on the best-selling illustrated novel Diary of a Wimpy Kid by Jeff Kinney. It is the first in a series that has thus far sold 24 million copies!
Diary of a Wimpy Kid chronicles the adventures of wise-cracking pre-teen Greg Heffley, who must somehow survive the scariest time of anyone’s life: middle school.
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 get the recognition he feels he deserves, Greg devisions an endless series of can’t-miss schemes, all of which of course go wrong!
