From Amazon.co.uk

The first volume in Jeff Kinney's wildly popular Web and book series hits the screen in this live-action adaptation. The impish Zachary Gordon, who recalls Wonder Years-era Fred Savage, plays Greg Heffley, who enters middle school determined to become class favourite. It won't be easy. His best friend, Rowley (the sweetly funny Robert Capron), is a big, redheaded lug who embarrasses him at every turn. Greg's obnoxious teenage brother, Rodrick (Devon Bostick), advises him to keep his head down, but Greg believes he needs to excel at something to achieve his goal. Smart, but small for his age, he tries wrestling and safety patrolling, but nothing seems to fit. During gym class, he and Rowley meet wise-beyond-her-years newspaper reporter Angie (Chloë Moretz, (500) Days of Summer), who finds popularity overrated. Greg isn't convinced, but the harder he tries, the more boorish he becomes, until even Rowley abandons him. After a humiliating encounter with some high school bullies, though, Greg learns what really matters: self-respect (he also discovers that the dreaded "cheese touch" is just a myth). Berlin-born director Thor Freudenthal (Hotel for Dogs) avoids any dull or sentimental patches, which should please kids and adults alike (an upbeat modern-rock soundtrack doesn't hurt). Rachael Harris and Steve Zahn could use more face time as the terminally un-cool Heffley parents, but Harris's rhythm-impaired moves at the mother-son dance provide one of the best laughs. Kinney fans will also appreciate the way Freudenthal weaves stick-figure drawings from Greg's journal throughout this zippy entertainment. --Kathleen C. Fennessy

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Fun! 16 May 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I think that this is a great adapation of the first book. Acting is good for people of that age and casting is superb! The plot is slightly different to the book (such as the Mother & Son Sweetheart Dance) but you expect that. You may think that if you aren't a fan of the books its a waste but my mum has no knowledge of the books at all yet loved it!

I bought this for my 9 year old son when he had friends around for a sleepover. He had read the books and loved them. He enjoyed the film and said it was as good as the books which is a high recommendation indeed.

3.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining. Even for adults! 20 Feb 2011
Format:DVD
My stepson is an avid fan of the books and enjoyed the film. There were some laugh-out-loud bits and it was enjoyable to watch with the kids. Fell a bit flat at the end but left me looking forward to the 'sequel'. Stand out performances were the actors that play Rowley and the older brother Roderick. A thing that annoyed me was that you were never told how old anyone was - I dont know how old kids are when they start US Middle School (about 10 I believe) and the older brother seemd older than I guess he was supposed to be. My stepson informed me that the pointless character of the school paper photographer (Chloe wotsit from Kick Ass wasted here) was not in the book - but I guess she was added to make it more 'girl friendly'.

5.0 out of 5 stars boys love it!! 13 Oct 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
...and girls probably, but I have 3 boys aged 7, 9 and 11. They all absolutely loved this film. The humour is very obvious (great for my son with Asbergers!)The message on the importance of friendship is done very well without pushing it in your face. As always a film is rarely as good as the book it comes from but my boys, who avidly read the books and are impatiently waiting for the next one, give this film a thumbs up!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent 4 Mar 2012
By Ianski
Format:DVD
My daughter loves the books and sometimes the films adapt the storylines beyond recognition, or have a cheap cast that means the success of the film's just riding on the popularity of the book. Not this one.

The acting overall is great, the storyline remains punchy and true to the book and there are some great performances, particularly Roderick as the older brother. There are also some great laugh out loud moments for all the family, the most obvious being one of the toilet scenes (without spoiling it if you haven't watched it).

Overall, great movie for all the family and I fully recommend it!

America at its best by sending up how cr*p it is. This film really brings the books to life, which is the upside down way of how adaptations usually work. Casting is spot on.
