When I was a student at Mount Logan Middle School during the tender years of 1995-1998, I hated it. I (almost) everything about it.
But after seeing the trailer for “Diary of a Wimpy Kid“, I want to go back. I want to relive it, because now I FINALLY realize how meaningless and stupidly funny it all was.
We’ve needed a movie like this for a long time. Honestly, cinemadromes have been devoid of juvenile junior high-level humor since the mid 1990s with gems like “Camp Nowhere.“
Will I actually end up seeing this movie? Hell no. If I did, I’d probably be mistaken for a pedophile, and really, this movie, which I’ve seen as a “Superbad for kids not old enough to see Superbad,” looks incredibly stupid.
But if it happened to end up Netflix insta-viewer one night after a night of dropping acid…would I watch it then? Hell yes.
