Movie Info

An 11-year-old dreamer participates in a big fundraiser to save her school's failing art program, and scrambles to recover her missing diary in this adaptation of Jim Benton's popular youth fiction series. Jamie Kelly (Emily Akyn Lind) may not be the most popular girl in Mackerel Middle School, but in her dreams she's so glamorous that even her popular classmate Angeline (Sterling Griffith) is green with envy. Meanwhile, back in real life, Jamie's crush Hudson Rivers (David Mazouz) never even gives her a second glance. Fortunately between her beloved Aunt Carol and her loyal classmate Isabella (Mary Charles Jones), Jamie has the best friends a girl could ask for. Later, when Jamie learns that Mackerel Middle School will be staging a Jump-a-thon fundraiser to keep its troubled art program afloat, she senses an opportunity to stand up for the less popular crowd. Jamie learns a couple of valuable life lessons, however, when her treasured diary disappears without a trace, and one of Isabella's ingenious schemes goes horribly awry. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

Audience Reviews for Dear Dumb Diary


A complete waste of time with unfunny humor, musical numbers that aren't catchy and the film trying way to hard to be touching. I don't know possibly some kids will like it.

Brilliant! funny, (sad, but so tragic you want to roll over laughing!) the songs and the mini-shows that go with it are great, and it's funny how she snaps back to reality every once in a while. seeing that i'm the first one to review it, i smile thinking about everyone who may or may not see it, and this movie shows an exceptional glance into her mind, since reading the books they don't tell you. this movie is, by any glance, great and fun! it shows you how Jamie Kelly thinks, how reality is and the wonderful life she struggles to lead.
