Viewers enduring early adolescence or those grappling with its psychic scars will recognize the honesty in the comic humiliation.

Though often self-centered and conniving, Greg remains a likable kid, and the movie entertains by pulling off over-the-top scenarios that set up digestible life lessons for youngsters.

Released right when summer starts to drag, Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Dog Days at least doesn't add to the exhaustion.

Old-fashioned and small in scale, the movies sometimes feel like after-school specials from a bygone era, which is part of what makes them so endearing.

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.

Ends the series' winning streak, or at least slows it down to a panting, dog-day crawl.

It all makes for goofy fun, and physical comedy that will have parents rolling their eyes.

The execution isn't great. David Bowers, the director, allows too much hammy acting.

The sort of mischief that felt cutely wise-alecky up to this point often just doesn't work here.

[It's] formulaic in adhering to the sitcom-style tone of the first two films.

The third time might not be the charm, but this harmless family comedy proves more pleasant than its episodic 2011 installment.

We jump back and forth between so many other half-hearted threads that it can feel a bit like surfing between channels that strictly show episodes of a never-made "Wimpy Kid" TV show.

Like a kid in a mid-day algebra class, "Diary of a Wimpy Kid; Dog Days" only wakes up for the louder, crasser jokes its pals crack.

The third installment in the "Wimpy Kid" franchise turns out to be not so wimpy after all.

It is less unified and more predictable than its predecessors, and doesn't play to all the franchise's earlier strengths.

Diary Of A Wimpy Kid benefits from not trying too hard, but it wouldn't hurt if it had tried just a little bit harder anyway.

Why are the "Diary of a Wimpy Kid" movies so much less fun, and funny, than the best of the books created by Jeff Kinney?

Slightly better than its predecessors - although it's still the same disjointed fluff about an aloof American middle-class kid with a bunch of hang-ups.
