"The IMDb Show" Thanksgiving special: Alan Tudyk ranks his top five droids of all time, we track down the cast of Roman J. Israel, Esq., and we share our favorite Thanksgiving TV episodes with memorable sitcom families.
Alexander's day begins with gum stuck in his hair, followed by more calamities. However, he finds little sympathy from his family and begins to wonder if bad things only happen to him, his mom, dad, brother and sister - who all find themselves living through their own terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day.
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
Greg Heffley does a couple of things Mr. Bean did. Such as, being scared to go off the high dive, with a younger person next in line. They both go off and lose their trousers. Also, they go through 100 possibilities of a phone number. See more »
Holly admonishes Greg for never calling her, but she already knew she wasn't able to give him the last part of her number. See more »
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.
