If you enjoy comedy mixed with great musical numbers then you will love "Dear Dumb Diary." "Dear Dumb Diary" is about a girl named Jamie Kelly who attends Mackeral Middle School and dreams of being popular and of having the boy of her dreams, Hudson, love her. She writes all of her secrets and dreams in her diary. She is jealous of a beautiful girl named Angeline who she feels gets more attention from Hudson than Jamie feels she deserves.

My favorite character in the movie is Jamie Kelly (Emily Alyn Lind). She is easy to relate to as most teenagers have insecurities and lots of dreams of how their life could be better. Jamie keeps her room really messy and only cleans it when she wants to find her missing diary. She is funny and has a great sense of humor. Emily is a very talented girl and does a wonderful job of acting, singing and dancing in this movie.

The musical numbers in "Dear Dumb Diary" are well choreographed and very entertaining. They add a great deal to the movie because it keeps the viewer's attention and adds an extra dimension to this already excellent movie.

My favorite part of the movie is actually a musical number. It is the musical number where Jamie sings that there are too many beautiful people in the world and they need to leave to give the ordinary people a chance to shine. The ordinary people put all of the beautiful people on a small yellow school bus and send them away.

The film has many positive messages that can apply to all age ranges. The first is "do not judge a book by its cover." Angeline, who Jamie feels is mean in the movie because she is so beautiful, actually covers for her and returns her diary without reading a single word of it.

This movie followed events from several of the first books in the series. It was funny to see how some of these events played out on screen! There were several songs in the movie, which I didn't expect because in the books it was never mentioned that the main character liked to sing, but it worked fairly well for the movie. I reccomend this movie for fans of this book series or of other books such as Judy Moody, Dork Diaries, or Diary of a Wimpy Kid.

I watched this movie with my 8 y/o niece, and was actually paying attention to most of it. The movie's highlight was Emily Alyn Lind's acting (From the movie "Won't Back Down"). The musical numbers were unexpected but made the movie fun. Also, the part of the aunt, played by Laura Bell Bundy, was very good too. Overall, this would be great movie to watch with your kids. It's a lot better than the oversaturation of Pixar films which are rampant these days.

When I first put this DVD in I thought oh no...I was seriously worried I just wasted $13 when I picked this up at Wal-Mart. Boy was I wrong! When I actually sat down and watched it I absolutely loved it. The musicals in it completely make the movie and I love the choreography. When I put this on my kids are glued to it.

My 10 year old daughter loved it. I really liked how colorful and bright the movie was. Great little actors. It lost my attention about half way through because it wasn't really plot driven, but I loved seeing it through my daughter's eyes. Great movie for a girl's sleepover. It's a musical. They will be singing and dancing the whole night. My Daugher was singing the songs the next day.

I'm writing this review with both myself and my five-year-old in mind. We are hardly the target audience.

First, my daughter misses a lot of the humor in this movie, but the frequent musical numbers kept her interest...for about 40 minutes. Problem is there were too many musical numbers detracted from the storyline.

Second, as an adult, I was in stitches (for the first half hour) because I totally understand what it's like to be a kid who sees the tiniest things as a sign that my crush a so in love with me, and I sure as hell wrote in my diary about it!! Since we all did something similar, we understand. :D I'm not sure the pre-teen set will quite get it, but I thought half an hour of it was funny. I also had quite the laugh over Jaime thinking her 32-year-old aunt is a dinosaur. I remember being in high school and thinking a friend's 21-year-old sister was old! But, unfortunately, it lost steam.

It also has a slightly more somber angle in that Jaime sees her best friend doing wrong, and gets sucked in because she naively believes Isabella to be perfect. I used Isabella's bad actions to talk to my daughter about being honest, but didn't make it until the end. I'm guessing they get in trouble, but I don't know.

I really wanted to like this movie, and my daughter did as well, but we just couldn't get through it.

This is a perfect movie for 10 year old girl sleepover - funny and fast paced with nothing inappropriate for this age group.
