    At least the cast perfectly fit the characters. That made the movie stick true to its source material. Rodrick was the best character.

    This most impressive thing about these Wimpy Kid films and particularly this film is the casting choices they made. I’m glad they didn’t go with what a lot of middle school based shows and films do nowadays and cast actors in their late teens to early 20s. Zachary Gordon perfectly fit the age to play Greg Heffley.

    I wish Rowley would actually ever defend himself like in the movie, god I got so annoyed by Greg just constantly terrorizing Rowley with no repercussions

    • razeenrajaful

      @Legal ZA0 Well compared to how much abuse Rowley just takes from Greg can't be compared to how much he stands up for himself

      @razeenrajaful
      They’ve definitely had fights after the first book, most notably in the 8th book with rowley and his girlfriend. I’d say that that book shows more imperfection in rowley then him standing up for himself though.

    • razeenrajaful
      razeenrajaful 3 months ago +6

      You know it’s a movie based off the first book right? In the book rowley stands up for himself and Greg sacrifices his social standing for him just like in the movie.

    I find myself liking this movie more as I get older. When I was younger I heavily focused on how rude and abusive a lot of the characters were, and even though I understood it as *the point* it was still a bit upsetting to watch how mean everyone is. Now that I'm older I can acknowledge that but also notice how it's a commentary on it, not an endorsement!

    ZephyrUrchin 4 months ago +48

    I really have to remember that "weird" doesn't always mean "bad." And yeah, if you haven't seen this movie, I can definitely recommend it. Also, I think the reason it's so weird is because, well, middle school and middle schoolers are weird. Y'know?

    I really enjoyed this movie and I just want to point out a few things.
    1. Angie's character was totally unnecessary in this movie and she's pretty annoying, good thing she doesn't show up for the sequels.
    2. Greg Heffley is a HORRIBLE friend and he doesn't deserve Rowley.
    3. The Disney reboot is an actual SIN and deserves to be called a crime to this franchise.
    Other than that, great movie☺️

      @infomercial Natalie Portman is a 42-year-old actress. If she was dating a 20-year-old would you just allow it to happen? Or would you try to physically stop the relationship? And a 21-year-old shouldn't date an 18-year-old child. If that happened I would call the cops.

    I actually feel like Rowley would be incredibly popular in a real middle school. He'd be the funny nice kid that everyone wanted to talk to
    Edit: yeah I know rowley was popular in the movie, but what I mean is that he would be popular for much longer and find better friends than Greg lol

    Seeing a Greg has not grown a hair anywhere on his body sans his head at this point making peach fuzz and pit hair seem rather intimidating...

      @Fernando Martinez Middle School isn't climactic. It's Middle School. Just like how most Middle Schoolers are really damn selfish and self-centred, as well as most High Schoolers
      The books are litterally diaries of a wimpy kid. Not a heroic climactic story where everyone gets their just desserts. Just a kid going through stuff

    • Fernando Martinez
      Fernando Martinez 4 months ago

      @New Android the ending to all 4 books is anticlimactic compared to the movies.
      He picks up the cheese and throws it away so he has the Cheese Touch and Rowley Is his friend again despite his horrible treatment of him.
      A Game of Telephone makes him the coolest kid in school because he's a pervert so he helps Rodrick with a Final Project
      His Dad enjoys the fact that Greg Humiliated himself and thinks he did it on purpose which is why he doesn't send him to Spag Union
      Greg Calls the Police by Accident and Rowley accepts a box of Raisins Game Tournament rather than go to Nationals.

    • New Android
      New Android 4 months ago +1

      @Fernando MartinezBut you can still see it if you just read between the lines. You don't need everything pointed out to you, the book also punishes him with the Rowley thing and it shows that not every bad person gets punished, because they don't. Greg is a selfish asshole, but the people around him aren't entirely aware of that. There are short moments when they are, but then they think they're proven wrong by some act that is selfless, usually only in their eyes and not truly.

    • Fernando Martinez
      Fernando Martinez 4 months ago

      @New Android that's because in the book he's completely unaware of his selfishness while in the Movies he knows and is rightfully punished for it until he does the right thing.

      @TripleMoya Games Greg isn't that bad people just like to over exaggerate it. He is a bigger jerk in the movies. Yes Greg is selfish and egotistical but there is an innocence to him. Alot of the time he is an unfortunate victim of cirumstanes or the straight man reacting to idiocy around him. For example cabin fever. Greg and Rowley put up green posters. It rains and it leaves a stain. The school thinks it's grifiti and the cops interrogate the kids. Or in Roderick Rules when Greg thought the starter pistol was a real gun so he hid at the bottom of the pool. In the movies you get stuff like Greg commiting identity theft The Last Straw Movie.

      @icecream hero the meltdown is one of the best books, that one flaw isnt too big honestly. and after the long haul, all the humor has just been plot humor or physical humor, which is funny sometimes, but not as much as the first 8 books. though, big shot fixed that problem

    The cheese touch never really made sense, I mean if it's been sitting there that long it had to go through all the seasons right. So you're telling me it didn't melt in the summer or wash away in the rain it just stayed there, it's weather defying cheese.

    Honestly the best way to survive middle school is to not have a friend like Greg. People like him will turn on you just to make themselves look good.

    Rowley is the type of friend that in middle school makes you question everyday if you can just drop him and forget he exists for the sake of trying to be cool since he just drags you down, but never do it either out of fear or because you like him.
    And if you do, later you just regret it since he was probably the only true friend you would have and the "cool status" matters shit.

      He develops from begging to end in each movie only. It doesn't carry on to the next film because that wouldn't be part of the source material. Greg is kind of oblivious to his selfishness in the books, but in the Movies he's aware of it and is rightfully punished which causes him to be better by the end. Things like him sticking up for Rowley at the end of Movie 1, bonding with Roderick and "humiliating" himself to fix their relationship, and trying to save his Dad's honor which leads to him standing up to his rival. Which also leads to his Father not sending him to Spag Union.

    Rowley inviting him over to play reminds me of the existential crisis I had in 7th grade when I realized I was too old to call my play clothes play clothes, but I had no idea what to call them instead. “Wait, I have to change out of my school clothes and into, um, my, um, clothes I wear when I’m not in school.”

    Something I never could wrap my head around is... Why didn't Greg just scribble out the word diary with a sharpie? Or even turn it into art? It would've saved him some bullying and constantly having to tell people it wasn't a diary.

      In fairnes, the illustrations in the DoaWK books are supposed to be done by Greg. I wouldn't put it past Greg to give people he doesn't like intentionally ugly features in his journal, even to the point of it being features they don't actually have.

    I’m torn on who has it the “worst” in middle school…
    As the movie pointed out, the boys all either look 7 or 17, then you’re judged/mocked relentlessly for it, you have to pee next to each other and your locker rooms are basically mini ThunderDome.
    As for the girls……
    That’s when about 98% of us have our reproductive systems turn into ticking timebombs -just waiting for the perfect nightmare scenario to make us suddenly feel like we’re dying from a burst appendix, then embarrass and traumatize us with the unexpected crimson tidal wave.
    Eventually followed by the slow, horrifying realization that you’ll have to worry about this happening to you every 2-3 weeks…month in and month out…for like….another 30+ years or so….
    Gawd, yeah-middle school is just the absolute worst.
    I genuinely feel bad for all kids in that age bracket. It’s WAY worse than high school!! 🤣🤦‍♀️

      @alicia! it’s far better to have coed puberty/sex ed classes. Sure, it’s awkward, but mutual understanding of the other sex is paramount to respecting each other. Normal bodily functions of the other sex are nothing to be grossed out by.
