Meet the kid who made “wimpy” cool, in a family comedy based on the best—selling illustrated novel Diary of a Wimpy Kid by Jeff Kinney, the first in a series that has thus far sold 24 million copies. DIARY OF A WIMPY KID chronicles the adventures of wise—cracking middle school student Greg Heffley, who must somehow survive the scariest time of anyone’s life: middle school.
