Diary of a Wimpy Kid
Seventh grader Greg Heffley (12-year old Zachary Gordon) often manipulates his "dorky" friend Rowley (Robert Capron). When Greg lets him take the blame for a mishap involving kindergarteners and the Safety Patrol, Rowley breaks up with him and starts seeing cool kid Collin (Alex Ferris). Greg tries to move on by dating Fregley (Grayson Russell), but that only makes him realize how much he cares for Rowley.
Later, on the schoolyard, the two fight, and then reconcile. They are named "cutest friends." How overt is that?
Greg and Rowley may still be friends, but in order to assure viewers that they are not. . .um, that way. . .they cringe at physical contact, refuse to sleep in the same bed, and try their hardest to avoid seeing each other nude or in their underwear.
Zachary Gordon hasn't made any public pro- or anti-gay statements, but Devon Bostick tweeted in support of gay marriage.
