More Info:
  • Abby West

    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.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Sean OConnell

    It really captures what it feels like to be a kid.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Nick Pinkerton

    It's the latest installment in what now forms a lightly likable trilogy of films based on Jeff Kinney's Wimpy Kid books.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Pete Hammond

    Fox is smart to keep turning this stuff out before star Gordon grows too old for the role. He's terrific in a Leave it to Beaver way, perfectly capturing the angst of being in-betweener.

    Boxoffice Magazine Full Review
  • Michael Rechtshaffen

    Oroves nimbler and truer to its origins than last year's "Rodrick Rules."

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Marc Savlov

    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.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Nathan Rabin

    Genial and pleasant to a fault, the film could benefit from a little more personality.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Scott Bowles

    Maintains the franchise's knack for getting kids right.

    USA Today Full Review
  • Matt Singer

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

    Time Out New York Full Review
  • Mike Scott

    Director David Bowers' story is straightforwardly -- almost unimaginatively -- approached. But, armed with a talented cast and Kinney's chuckle-generating source material, it functions nicely as a sort of big-screen "Wonder Years" for Millennials.

    New Orleans Times-Picayune Full Review
  • Peter Bradshaw

    It's perfectly workable popcorn entertainment for the school holidays.

    The Guardian Full Review
  • Bill Goodykoontz

    The best of the lot. It's not great, but the mean-spiritedness that permeated the first film and stuck around a bit for the second is mostly gone.

    Arizona Republic Full Review
  • Lael Loewenstein

    Formulaic in adhering to the sitcom-style tone of the first two films, picture finds the chronically underappreciated Greg facing a summer break replete with parental expectations and anxiety over his first crush.

    Variety Full Review
  • Anna Smith

    Greg avoids the curse of the three in the third outing for the Wimpy Kid. Hardly groundbreaking but plenty of fun for its target audience.

    Empire Full Review
  • James Mottram

    Childminders rejoice: the formulaic but family-friendly series is back and it's business as usual.

    Total Film Full Review
  • Stephanie Zacharek

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

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Neil Genzlinger

    The film is more a patched-together collection of anecdotes than a coherent story, and some of Greg's tribulations, like fear over a high dive and an amusement-park ride, don't seem age-appropriate for a boy who has just finished seventh grade.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Tom Russo

    Compared to the first two movie installments, this one is uncharacteristically scattershot in the life-lessons department.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Andrew Schenker

    A half-hearted morality tale about taking responsibility for your actions as a sign of impending maturity.

    Slant Magazine Full Review
  • Joe Neumaier

    Unlike last year's superior "Judy Moody and the Not Bummer Summer" - which put its grade-school heroine through similarly seasonal woes - "Dog Days" squanders several chances to find something magical in the mundane.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Michael Phillips

    Here and there, in the father/son scenes, you see a glimmer of an honest interaction. All in all, I'd rather watch a "Ned's Declassified School Survival Guide" rerun.

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • Lou Lumenick

    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.
