Storyline

Summer vacation started, and Greg has his own way to enjoy it with video games. However, his father wants him to go outside and stop playing video games, and his mother has her own plans, including a reading club. In addition, Greg can't get along with his father. The only thing they have in common is the hatred for the Lil Cutie Comics. Things only get worse after the stay at the beachside cabin goes totally wrong. Will anything go right? At least there's Holly Hills. Written by gamergcfan

A Great Movie For The Whole Family To Enjoy,
5 August 2012 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

Diary Of A Wimpy: Dog Days is a very funny movie with great,innocent humor for the whole family to enjoy.I find the characters and scenes in the movie very funny and in the cinema,people of all ages where laughing.I love the books,a lot more than the films,as usual,because movies based on books always leave a lot of stuff out,and thats no exception with the Diary Of A Wimpy Kid movies,especially this one,because its a mix of two,The Last Strraw and Dog Days,but it still is quit enjoyable and the scenes stay true to the scenes there based off from the book.

Greg Heffley is gearing towards a summer of doing nothing but playing video games,but his dad is not allowing this and wants him doing more activities.Greg pretends to his dad he got a job at a country club,but hes really just going there with his best friend Rowley and his brother Rodrick to have a good time,and to speak to Holly Hills,a girl he likes.Gregs summer plans aren't going exactly as planned.
