Chicago Sun-Times - Roger Ebert
It's nimble, bright and funny. It doesn't dumb down. It doesn't patronize. It knows something about human nature.
Entertainment Weekly - Lisa Schwarzbaum
Does a great job of being in two places at once: In the head and gangly bodies of kids, and in the hearts of those of us who have survived grades 6-8.
Orlando Sentinel - Roger Moore
Crass, gross and juvenile in all the best (and worst) ways, Diary is aimed squarely at a tween "don't touch the cheese" demographic. And if you don't get it, maybe you're just too old for a good booger joke.
The Hollywood Reporter - Kirk Honeycutt
A likable movie for kids that will make adults chuckle as well because of the movie's key ingredient -- wit.

Diary of a Wimpy Kid (2010)

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 people's stupid questions all day.' So was born the Wimpy Kid's diary.
