With each movie, the franchise becomes better at milking the formula that causes 4th graders to cringe with delight. The story is always the same: Greg Heffley Zachary Gordon suffers through the traumas and indignities of a young boy growing up. Tormented by his older brother, hounded by his younger brother, misunderstood by his parents and teachers, and haunted by Holly Peyton List , the unattainable pretty girl in his class, Greg muddles through one humiliating mishap after another, accompanied by his well-intentioned best friend Rowley Robert Capron. This episode, which is based on the fourth book in the Wimpy Kid series , begins at the close of the school year. Alas, it is not to be.

Directed by: David Bowers. Not since the Andy Hardy films has there been such a harmless, yet charming family movie series as the Diary of a Wimpy Kid films. Greg Heffley, like Andy Hardy, often gets into minor trouble through his pursuits. Based on two of Jeff Kinney's popular books , Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Dog Days finds Greg wanting to spend his summer vacation doing nothing more than playing video games. His parents try to get him interested in other things such as reading and joining a scout troop. He finally gets motivated when his friend Rowley invites him to his country club where he discovers that Holly, the girl he likes from school, also spends time. After accidentally offending Rowley's parents, Greg loses the invite so he starts sneaking in, telling his parents he has a summer job at the country club. Greg's older brother Rodrick catches wind of what Greg is doing and joins in. He has an eye for Holly's older stuck up sister Heather.
‘Wimpy Kid’: Winning, family-friendly franchise
With approximately 50 million copies of his "Diary of a Wimpy Kid" graphic novels in circulation, author Jeff Kinney has a loyal following of readers who have outgrown Dr. Seuss but aren't ready for Harry Potter. The arrival of the second live-action "Wimpy Kid" movie will give them and indulgent parents something to do on a rainy Saturday afternoon. For everyone else, the new "Diary" dramedy, which lacks much of the mischievous, subversive appeal of last year's debut film, will be about as much fun as diagramming sentences in eight-grade English class. The antihero of the series is Greg Heffley, a put-upon year-old who sees his life as an unending series of humiliations.
