Diary of a Wimpy kid. Parents do not be alarmed. This film is great

With some sort of trepidation the 11 year old asked and I agreed to go and see a film. Having searched it seemed there were 3 options and the Wimpy kid was the deemed choice. Cue great concern. This did not sound like something that would entertain me on a friday evening. In reality this was such a funny film that I would watch it again, OK not today, but certainly when the video version comes along in a few months. The script was witty with a few jokes that went above the heads of the mainly young and pre-teenagers watching. The story was quasi believable . This was the first day of release and the cinema was far from empty. The acting was also rather good. The teenegaer playing the lead role had it just right like a clumsy adolescent. Zachary Gordon one suspects will go on to a decent acting career. To describe the film? There are elements of Chevy Chase style humour, Rat Race springs to mind, but with a few serious messages in there and a laugh at maybe many families out there who have their quirks. Peyton List was not too shabby either as the crush object for the guy and the father was almost believeable too, Steve Zahn

I would recommend this film and for a parent it is not too painful an experience. When can i watch it again? I apologise for the I- Phone photo. Real camera was at home sleeping…….
