Sixth grader Greg Heffley learns important lessons about friendship, being a good friend and identity in Diary of a Wimpy Kid. A light-hearted, middle-school buddy movie, Diary of a Wimpy Kid is a perfect dump and run movie.
Entering middle school wasn’t as easy as Greg Heffley (Zachary Gordon) anticipated. Some of the kids are way bigger than him. The same things that are cool in elementary school become a badge of shame in middle school. Greg does everything he can to fit in and be… Continue

WHAT THE HELL!
I have heard so many STUPID, RECKLESS misuses of 911, from a wrong fast food order to videos games apparently, it's just unbelievable. Do people really think that we have unlimited emergency resources? Do people really believe they can call 911… Continue
