Though this one is better than the first two, this is now my least favorite trilogy.

Formulaic, family-friendy sequel, as Greg's angst takes a more adolescent turn.

If you're over the age of 12, chances are you're already too old for these movies.

If you're a ten-year-old boy (or have a ten-year-old boy's sense of humor), you should like this. And I'm nothing if not a big, fat, hairy ten-year-old boy.

What happened to madness? What happened to rebellion? Oh, what's the bloody point? Nobody's listening.

A throwback to the live action kid comedies Hollywood used to regularly turn out

Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Dog Days is probably the most inoffensive kid's film you're likely to see this summer. And that's a good thing.
August 3, 2012
More Wimpy Kid fun mixed with worthy messages, potty humor.
August 3, 2012
Viewers enduring early adolescence or those grappling with its psychic scars will recognize the honesty in the comic humiliation.
August 3, 2012
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.

If written just a bit sharper, the film could have been a really affecting father-son tale. (Full Content Review for Parents also available)

Released right when summer starts to drag, Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Dog Days at least doesn't add to the exhaustion.
August 3, 2012
Rather good, skewering pre-teen anxieties with some wit and accuracy and sweetening the deal with dollops of gungy slapstick.

Greg Heffley... will learn some further lessons about not being a preteen jerk, but his audience will still be encouraged to find hilarity in crotch injuries and budding homophobia.
August 3, 2012
An entirely harmless and congenial tale of pre-teen social mayhem.
August 3, 2012
Even for an episodic kiddie farce, Dog Days seems overly familiar in its comic premises (oh no! peeing in the municipal pool!) and conflicts...but it’ll all be new to its intended audience...
August 3, 2012
For grumpy parents desperate for a few hours of peace, what's not to like?
August 3, 2012
The disappointing truth is that director David Bowers and the script deserve fail grades for their shambolic efforts.
August 3, 2012
The filmmakers who've adapted Jeff Kinney's Wimpy Kid series still know the sweet spots, even when - as in the case of the lesser installment like Diary Of A Wimpy Kid: Dog Days - they can't seem to decide on a story.
August 3, 2012
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.
