    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. show more

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

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

    Tom Russo Boston Globe

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

    Andrew Schenker Slant Magazine

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

    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. show more

    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. show more

    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. show more

    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. show more

    This is the first Diary of a Wimpy Kid movie for me. I took my 5 & 7 year old grandkids. I wasn\'t expecting to laugh so much. It was fun for kids and adults (me). When I see a movie like this, I try to relax and enjoy the satire. It makes it so much fun!
