Diary of a Wimpy Kid movie!

I heard a while ago that the Diary of a Wimpy Kid series was going to be made into a movie. (The books are hilarious - if you haven't read them yet, you HAVE to.)

Well, I saw the trailer today. I was cracking up the whole time, and it looks great! I was worried that they wouldn't be able to capture the tone of the book very well, but they seem to be doing pretty good so far!

It's hilarious! And thankfully it looks like they're keeping a lot of the plot in, and the cast looks great! I'm definitely going to watch this in the theaters. :-D

Thanks for sharing, Priya!

This movie looks absolutely terrific based on the books and movie Trailer. Nobody complained when they took the cartoon drawings form the Harry Potter books and made them live action, so why are you complaining about the Diary of a Wimpy Kid making it to the big screen. The pick of the actors looks pretty darn good. This is a major aspect of the transition from the book to the screen because there isn't any real sample or character that the actors can copy....they are creating the characters as close to the book as possible. It looks like it's gonna work and work well. Everyone I knows is going to go see this hilarious movie, mark my words...even the individuals who find the need to critisize it...they will all be there at the theater trust me!
