  • 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.

  • When Greg's Dad (Steve Zahn) threatens to send him to military school if he dosen't stay out of trouble, Greg finds all-new ways to land himself In the Doghouse! For starters, Greg's in over his head when he pretends to work at a swanky country club where Rowley's family has a membership. Things don't go much better on a father-son camping trip with the Wilderness Explorers, and then there's the Heffley's new dog, Sweetie, who fetches even more trouble for Greg.

  • Summer vacation is supposed to be a lot of fun and a great time-unless of course, you're Greg Heffley. Greg finds his satisfaction for summer elsewhere-inside an air-conditioned house playing video games. The only obstacle in his way is his father, who insists on Greg spending his summer like a normal kid, playing outside and doing something manly. But Greg is not built to spend the summer with the outside world, especially after a few incidents with his family and best friend, Rowley. So after this time, Greg does everything he can to impress his father not only to be a good son, but to avoid military school, leading to crazy and sometimes dangerous accidents

  • School's out. Summer vacation is on. However, Greg may not have the best summer vacation ever. What could go wrong?
