If you’re like me, you don’t really know much about Diary of a Wimpy Kid, except that every time you walk into a Borders or a Barnes & Noble, you come face to face with them and their stick-figure dust jackets. That was pretty much enough to make me despise the series. The trailer for the movie based on the books doesn’t help.
“A butt’s not cute. It’s a butt.”
Man alive: Kids have a lot to learn.
I like high-school movies. I like real-life infants and toddlers. But, man: Middle-school kids represent a creative void. How can you be ostracized for being gangly or awkward looking when everyone is gangly or awkward-looking?
Puberty is ugly, people. I don’t care who you are. It’s an inescapable fact. In fact, before you watch this trailer, go on over to the Pajiba Facebook and post pictures from your puberty era so we can all point and laugh. It’s Saturday, and wherever you’re at, it’s probably cold. What else have you got to do?
(No pictures of albinos, please. They give Skitz the hives.)
