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

Dog Days Are Over!
27 September 2012 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I thought Dog Days was a pretty good film. I was very impressed with Zachary Gordon's acting and the rest of the cast. There are some different aspects and genre the film concentrates on. It's a very nice little film that is funny and makes you laughing out loud around every corner.

I thought Dog Days was missing something, something to make it shine. It felt unfinished or rushed. I don't know how to explain it. It just felt... unfinished? I quite wished to enjoy it a little bit more than I did, but it's still a good film for everyone. I still think the first two are a little bit better than this one, but it doesn't let down anyways.
