Diary of a Wimpy Kid

Episode Guide

Diary of a Wimpy Kid

Adapted from the bestselling 'novel in cartoons' by Jeff Kinney, Thor Freudenthal's (Hotel for Dogs) comedy is the story of pre-teen Greg Heffley (Zachary Gordon) and his misadventures as he starts life in an American middle school.

Teased by his older brother Rodrick (Devon Bostick) at home and reluctantly falling in with the geek crowd at school, Greg details his experiences in his journal (which he refuses to call a diary) as he attempts to claw his way up from the bottom rung of the school social ladder and gain himself a place in the school yearbook.

With plenty of slapstick and broad humour, there's also a touching if lopsided relationship between Greg and his rotund best friend Rowley (Robert Capron).

(2010) Cert: PG
