The Dork Diaries: Tales from a Not-So-Fabulous Life (formerly known as The Dork Diaries) is a 2020 romantic-comedy film which was directed by Mark Waters, the director of Mean Girls. This film is based on a book series written and illustrated by Rachel Renee Russell.


Fourteen-year-old Nikki Maxwell is not happy when her father arranges a scholarship for her to attend a private middle school called Westchester Country Day as part of the contract for his services. Nikki does not fit in with the wealthy, designer clad students and spends most of her time alone writing in her diary. To make matters worse, she has a locker right next to the school's most popular girl, MacKenzie Hollister. MacKenzie labels Nikki as a "Dork" and goes out of her way to make Nikki’s life miserable.

It appears the new school may work out when Nikki befriends two other dorky girls, Chloe and Zoey, and Brandon, who she secretly has a crush on. But things take a turn for the worse when Nikki enters a talent show and discovers her main competition is her enemy, MacKenzie, who will stop at nothing to win.
