ClearPlay In Action!Think of something that would make a 10-year-old laugh, and that’s the type of stuff ClearPlay cuts, mostly jokes dealing with rear ends or their byproducts. A few shots of a disembodied foot (!) are cut, and some language is cut as well. There is an extended scene of a boy running around in his underwear that is intact and might make some viewers uncomfortable. Otherwise, Diary is mostly fine for everyone when ClearPlayed.
Is Diary wimpy, or does it rule?…A lot of people who like the books complain about the adaptations not being faithful, but having never read them, I found the story enjoyable. Rodrick Rules does a nice job of showing a love/hate sibling relationship that is ultimately uplifting. Throw in some good belly laughs, and you’ve got yourself a pretty solid family film.
