- 1 hr 24 min
In the made-for-TV movie Dear Dumb Diary, a middle schooler uses her diary to work out her frustrations with her peers and her life in general. Her protestations tend to get her into trouble, but they also end up teaching her valuable lessons in the end. Jamie Kelly is a student at Mackerel Middle School. Her closest relationships include her best friend Isabella Vinchella, her 'nemesis' Angeline and her love interest Hudson Rivers. Upon finding out that art classes are being revoked due to budget cuts, she inadvertently signs up for the Jump-A-Thon, which Angeline is also participating in. Jamie and Isabella go door-to-door asking for donations, with Isabella also getting donations for a charity called the "Juvenile Optometry Federation" that provides eyeglasses to poor children in need. Meanwhile, her Aunt Carol applies for a job as a secretary after Jamie accidentally injures an older secretary in Assistant Principal Devon's office. Aunt Carol starts dating and Jamie tries to figure out who this mysterious date is. Meanwhile, Angeline begins to spend more time around Jamie, although Jamie suspects she has an ulterior motive. Jamie conspires to steal Angeline's permanent record in an attempt to find things she can use to ruin Angeline's reputation. A few days prior to the Jump-A-Thon, Jamie finds out that Isabella lied about the "Juvenile Optometry Federation" and used the money to buy herself some contact lenses. Meanwhile, Jamie's diary is misplaced and found by the other students, who ridicule her for the things she has written. Humiliated, Jamie refuses to return to school and almost bails on the Jump-A-Thon, but decides to attend after some encouraging words from Carol.
