Diary Of A Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul

Critics Consensus

With an all-new cast but the same juvenile humor, Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul finds the franchise still stuck in arrested -- and largely unfunny -- development.

  • At least Silverstone, who hasn't lost her gift for comic pouting, is allowed to bring some humanity and playfulness to her killjoy character -- though this mainly reinforces the impression that she deserves better roles.

  • The fourth in the Wimpy Kid film franchise skews towards a conspicuously young target demographic (say, five and under) with precious little left for the accompanying adults.

  • For once, it'll be the grownups asking the kids: "Are we there yet?"

  • It's mostly carried off with aplomb, particularly by Charlie Wright, who looks like a slightly less evil Ezra Miller and gives a genuinely funny performance as permanently perplexed metalhead Rodrick.

  • A dirge of unfunny scatological material, techno-anxiety and child endangerment masquerading as familial bonding.

  • It's a toxic misstep from a once-reliable series.
