Words Nicola Johnston
The book is a international best seller, written and illustrated by Jeff Kinney, written for children aged 9 and above, appealing to those who love cartoon characters and funny stories. It reminded me of Adrian Mole written by English author Sue Townsend.
The third film instalment runs at 94 minutes, directed by Thor Freudenthal, staring Zachary Gordon, Robert Capron and Rachael Harris. It is a likable film and one that will make adults chuckle, it is full of wit, and the live action sequences are again punctuated by brief black and white strip cartoons. School is out and its summer break and Greg is looking forward to spending his days in front of the television playing his computer games, while his older brother played by the wonderful Devon Bastick lies around on the couch asleep and generally annoys Greg, but all his plans soon go wrong and the real adventures begin.
This film provides uplifting entertainment for the whole family.
