A Heffley family road trip to attend Meemaw's 90th birthday party goes hilariously off course thanks to Greg's newest scheme to get to a video gaming convention. This family cross-country adventure turns into an experience the Heffleys will never forget.Written by

While on the Alien Abduction, Greg begins climbing away from Mr. Beardo. Greg accidentally hits a girl with two braided pig tails in the head with his knee. The girl says, "Watch it you jerk!" Her sharp attitude along with her hairstyle resembles Patty from the previous films. However it is not confirmed that this character is her, as she is unnamed in this movie. See more »

Do we have to come to Corny's? This place is for babies.
Then you fit right in, Greggy.
It's not a place for babies, it's a place for family-style dining. Right, Frank?
That's right. And the buffet's all-you-can-eat, so take advantage.
Thanks for inviting me, Mr. and Mrs. Heffley. I hear the ball pit is super deep!

National Lampoon for a younger audience
Greg Heffley (Jason Drucker) is looking forward to a long summer of just hanging out, but his mother forces the entire family to take a road trip for a relative's birthday celebration.
Wimpy Kid veteran David Bowers directs a briskly paced family comedy in the vein of National Lampoon's (only a version for a younger audience). The cast include the familiar faces of actors Alicia Silverstone and Tom Everett Scott who are accompanied by some fresh faced new comers who play Wimpy Kid favourites Greg, Rodrick and Rowley. The players are forgivably not as settled into their roles quite yet but nonetheless are entertaining. Some editing aside Bowers offers a well made good looking film. Long Haul is a road trip where almost every outlandish gag is borrowed from another comedy but it's put together well enough to get pleasure from. It also amusingly touches on the over reliance of technology within a family.
If your child is a fan of the Wimpy Kid series, they'll no doubt enjoy this one, it's entertaining and lowbrow enough to also appease the moodiest of teens and grumpiest adults.
