Diary of a Wimpy Kid

Time Out says

2 out of 5 stars

Everyone knows that middle school isn’t for the weakhearted, but 12-year-old Greg (Gordon) is finding sixth grade harder than algebra. The odds are stacked against him: What do you do when you’re too short to shine in sports, too much of a soprano to star in the musical, and your best friend (Capron) is pure social poison? Based on Jeff Kinney’s popular kid-lit series, this wisecracking saga of tween angst largely avoids the gimmicky saccharine aftertaste that’s typical of the genre. Anyone older than the story’s resident Job, however, may not find much to write home about.—Lisa Rosman
