Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Dog Days

In the latest addition to the Diary of a Wimpy Kid series, based on the popular books by Jeff Kinney, our hero Greg Heffley (Zachary Gordon) is back with a few familiar faces – such as his best friend Rowley, his brother Rodrick, and his mom and his dad (Steve Zahn). After a few too many mishaps Greg’s father threatens to send him away to military school if he doesn’t shape up, but in Greg’s attempts to stay out of trouble he somehow ends up in the thick of it every time, whether it’s taking a job at a swanky a country club or letting the father-son camping trip with the Wilderness Explorers go sideways. As if that’s not enough trouble for one kid’s plate, there’s also the Heffley’s new dog Sweetie, who manages to “fetch” even more trouble for Greg!

The Bottom Line

For serious fans of the books, you’ll notice that this third installment is actually a combination of books three and four. The last movie Rodrick Rules was all about Greg’s relationship with his brother, Dog Days is about how he deals with his dad. The success of all these movies to date has a lot to do with the lovable cast, so if you’ve loved the previous movies, there’s no doubt you’ll enjoy this one as well. The ideas and characters aren’t as fresh as when the films first hit the screen, but they’re goofiness and Greg’s wacky problems are still endearing. Hopefully if another movie is made, audiences will get to see Greg grow up just a little bit and deal with some new kinds of problems.

The Blu-Ray/DVD and Digital copy has similar extras to the last two films, and while they won’t blow you out of the water, the most important thing about these films is the characters.

Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Dog Days Blu-ray/DVD Rating:3

Many of the reviews and critics say it's bad because they are only looking at it from 'comic to movie' perspective. It was still a really cool movie and you should go see it. I'd have to agree with this. The movie itself was great. I think some people looked at it poorly because they were expecting something more similar to the older films or comparing it too hard to the comics. I personally think that it was a great way to reinvent some of the characters.

"It's so hard to talk when you want to k-ll yourself. That's above and beyond everything else, and it's not a mental complaint-it's a physical thing, like it's physically hard to open your mouth and make the words come out. They don't come out smooth and in conjunction with your brain the way normal people's words do; they come out in chunks as if from a crushed-ice dispenser; you stumble on them as they gather behind your lower lip. So you just keep quiet.” Ned Vizzini, "It's Kind of a Funny Story"

“Isn't there something in living dangerously?' There's a great deal in it,' the Controller replied. 'Men and women must have their adrenals stimulated from time to time.' What?' questioned the Savage, uncomprehending. It's one of the conditions of perfect health. That's why we've made the V.P.S. treatments compulsory.' V.P.S.?' Violent Passion Surrogate. Regularly once a month. We flood the whole system with adrenin. It's the complete physiological equivalent of fear and rage. All the tonic effects of murdering Desdemona and being murdered by Othello, without any of the inconvenience.' But I like the inconveniences.' We don't,' said the Controller. 'We prefer to do things comfortably.' But I don't want comfort. I want God, I want poetry, I want real danger, I want freedom, I want goodness. I want sin.' In fact,' said Mustapha Mond, 'you're claiming the right to be unhappy. Not to mention the right to grow old and ugly and impotent; the right to have ######## and cancer, the right to have too little to eat; the right to be lousy; the right to live in constant apprehension of what may happen tomorrow; the right to catch typhoid; the right to be tortured by unspeakable pains of every kind.' There was a long silence. I claim them all,' said the Savage at last. Mustapha Mond shrugged his shoulders. 'You're welcome,' he said.”
