Giveaway: Diary of a Wimpy Kid DVD

I’ve seen a few of you mention that you were reading Diary of a Wimpy Kid to your kids. So when I was asked if I wanted to preview this DVD, I had to check it out.

I was pleasantly surprised to find that this movie actually had quite a bit of humor to it. My hubby and I found ourselves laughing out loud at a few parts. Basically the movie is about a boy named Greg that’s starting Middle School and is on a quest to become a Favorite in the Yearbook at the end of the year. He gets into some predicaments on his journey with his friend Rowley. I haven’t read any of the books so I can’t compare if the movie is close to their storyline but I did find it to be a cute movie to watch.

While I didn’t get a DVD to giveaway from my sponsor since this was just a review opportunity, I still wanted to offer my readers a chance to win one. So I’ll be sponsoring a copy myself this time around. So if you’d like to check out this movie, too, be sure to enter to win as I have one copy to giveaway!

    I loved “Dear John” by Nicholas Sparks!!! Thanks for the opportunity to win. My middle child absolutely LOVES Diary of a Wimpy Kid!

  2. Jackie says

    My favorite book or books that has been made into a movie is definitely “Little House in the Prairie”. I read them constantly growing up, my children are now reading them and I STILL read them to this day. Disney made the movie and of course there’s always the tv series :)

  3. Lisa Ramey says

    We love all of the Harry Potter movies. They seem to stay fairly true to the book.

  4. Toni says

    My favorite book to movie has to be the two Narnia books so far, though the Lord of the Rings trilogy runs a close second, er, or third, fourth & fifth. The Narnia blu rays get played in my house pretty much each weekend.

  5. Melissa Schultz says

    I have to go with Willy Wonka-Charlie and the Chocloate Factory. I just love both the movie and the book.

  6. Jennifer B says

    off the top of my head… Bridget Jones Diary… although the resulting movie was dismal.

  7. Erin says

    I think this was one of the cutest ones I have seen in awhile that was a book turned into a movie. :)

  8. says

    Diary of a Wimpy Kid is my favorite book turned movie because my kids LOVE it. They read all of the books in about a week and a half and then we went to see it on opening day. It is my favorite because my kids love it :-)

  9. says

    Another favorite of mine is The Twilight Saga. Coworkers and I read the books and then traveled to see all the movies like a bunch of teenagers. :-)

  10. Gina says

  11. erica serna says

  12. says

    Well, I admit that if I could I’d have gone to Hogwarts and have thrown a totally crazy Harry Potter party. Harry Potter #4 was my favorite. My son loves Diary of a Wimpy Kid and I’d LOVE to win this.

  13. Stacey says

    “My Sisters Keeper” by Jodi Picoult was my FAVORITE book that got turned into an okay movie. BUT, I just read “The Hunger Games” by Suzanne Collins. I hear they are making it into a movie- it has GOT to be FANTASTIC if it is anything at all like the AMAZING book! = )

  14. Heather Leahey says

    I loved the Harry Potter books (although no movie can make it truly as magical), and I also enjoyed the Sookie Stackhouse series (although True Blood is not a movie).

  15. amy enochs says

    I am a fan of the Twilight saga I must admitt….I did not much enjoy the first movie, however the next two were good and I even own the second one.

  16. Varsey Humphrey says

    My all time favorite will always be “Where the Red Fern Grows” I start cring the first scene of the movie or as soon as I start reading the first words.

  17. Jessica says

    I loved the book “Lovely Bones”, not so crazy about the movie – but isn’t the book always better? I LOVED Diary of a Wimpy Kid – my husband and I were cracking up in the movie theater :)

  18. Amber says

    My son REALLY really wants this! But, we can’t afford it. I’d love to win it for his Birthday!

  19. Amy says

    Eat, Pray, Love is currently my favorite book & I cannot wait for the movie to come out next week. Thanks! =)

  20. Aimee says

    My favorite books made into movies are Harry Potter. Also a big fan of the Lord of the Rings books.

  21. Kelli A says

    I have read all the Twilight books so I can talk to my niece about them. I recently watched New Moon and thought this was a pretty good book turned movie.

  22. Angie says

    Ok, so don’t think that I am morbid or anything, but the book “Alive” (back in the 80’s) was the first book I read and then saw the movie. That started my interest into books turned movies.

  23. Megan Stukey says

    Gotta say “The Notebook”….its such a touching story. Always makes me wanna go hug my husband!

  24. sharon crews says

    I think the best “turned into a movie” is Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. Simply a classic.

  25. Kerry Witbrod says

    My favorite book that turned into a movie is “Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban”.

  26. nicole says

  28. Shover says

    Our son’s favorite book turned into a movie is definitely the Diary of a Wimpy Kid series! He’s collected a every book, as well as a T-Shirt, poster, and Jeff Kinney’s signature. But alas, he does not have the dvd yet. We hope he wins!

  31. Cheryl says

    My son loves reading diary of wimpie kid books, daughter just loves reading any books. The dvd would be a great reward for a summer of reading.

  32. April Vereb says

    My favorite would have to be Nicholas Sparks’ ‘The Notebook’. Great book and movie!!

  33. Lynn says

    I am always disappointed when books are turned into movies. I never feel like they are as good as the books, so I really do not have a favorite.
