  • In this third film in the DIARY OF A WIMPY KID series, Greg Heffley (Zachary Gordon) wants to spend the summer before eighth grade playing video games and maybe, if he can finagle it, getting closer to his crush Holly Hills (Peyton List). The former plan goes out the window when his dad Frank (Steve Zahn) decides to ban video games from the house. In order to connect with his young son, Frank schedules a number of fishing trips and signs the boy up for Scouts. Greg has more luck on the girlfriend front when his best friend Rowley (Robert Capron) invites him to go to his family's country club, where Holly works as a tennis instructor. Soon, in order to avoid spending so much time with his dad, Greg lies to his parents and says he works at the club, a deception that his older brother Rodrick (Devon Bostick) uses to blackmail him and gain access to the establishment.

  • Critic Reviews
    "[D]one with a warm heart, a cynical joke always on hand to balance out the script's more sentimental moments."
    Sight and Sound

    "DAYS is perfectly content in its juvenile nook, more interested in fleshing out a book's story lines than establishing a commercial tie-in....It all makes for goofy fun..."
    USA Today

    3.5 stars out of 5 -- "[A] throwback to the live action kid comedies Hollywood used to regularly turn out, a solid formula that makes kids crack up....DOG DAYS is the funniest and best WIMPY KID yet."
    Box Office

    "Zahns unique way with a line reading or reaction keeps things benignly amusing."
    Hollywood Reporter

    "[T]he emotions on display are all refreshingly relatable..." -- Grade: B-
    A.V. Club

    "Greg remains a likable kid, and the movie entertains by pulling off over-the-top scenarios that set up digestible life lessons for youngsters." -- Grade: B+
    Entertainment Weekly

    3 stars out of 5 -- "[The] family-friendly series is back and it's business as usual....With adolescent antics aplenty..."
