Storyline Heading
School's out and Greg is looking forward to enjoying the best summer of all time. But when his dad decides that some father-son bonding is in order, Greg must do everything he can to keep him from ruining his vacation. So he hatches a plan to pretend he has a job at a ritzy country club - but even that fails to keep Greg away from the season's dog days, including embarrassing mishaps at a public pool and a camping trip that goes horribly wrong.
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Comedy - Like the the previous two films in the series, this is a family comedy based on the book series of the same name, aimed at pre- and early teens, particularly boys. Unlike the second film, this film focuses back on regular hero Greg and not his older brother. There is some mildly crude humor, but on the whole this is safe viewing for all ages.

Critic's Review Heading

USA Today Full Review
Above Average It all makes for goofy fun, and physical comedy that will have parents rolling their eyes.

Entertainment Weekly Full Review
Good The 'Wimpy' kid residing in all of us should find ample heart, hearty laughs and heaping helpings of wholesome humiliation in 'Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Dog Days,' the third chapter in what has become a winning, family-friendly film franchise.

NY Post Full Review
Poor I'd call "Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Dog Days" harmless if it weren't for some totally unnecessary gay-panic jokes that could actually encourage bullying.
