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
If the original Wimpy Kid excelled because of the misfortunes of its main character, then "Dog Days" satisfies by leaning ever harder into that. One of my quibbles with this movie series is that Greg Heffley is more of a jerk than just hapless, but the writers make up for it with the level of misadventures.
It's funnier than the original because his dad has ore involvement; which means more Steve Zahn, who really runs with it. The guy's a scream.
