Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul

In the fourth film based on Jeff Kinney's novel series, Greg tricks his family so he can attend a gamer convention. Features an all new cast.

Greg (Jason Drucker) convinces his family to take a road trip to attend his great grandmother's 90th birthday as a cover for what he really wants: attend a nearby gamer convention. Unsurprisingly, things do not go according to plan and Heffley family antics ensue.

The fourth instalment of the Wimpy Kid saga delivers a sequel of diminishing returns. Despite a new cast (the original actors now too old for their roles), this feels anything but fresh. Predictable plotting, clunky dialogue, half-hearted characterisation, gross gags and tired jokes add up to a lacklustre affair, one that does Jeff Kinney’s books no favours.

Great Family Laugh

The long haul is based on a book series "Diary of a wimpy kid" . This film has a whole new and better cast, the story line is more clear and fun. It's humor could be a bit debatable between viewers but I found them funny, well most of them.

An amiable, fast-paced entry that should win over fans.

It's mostly carried off with aplomb, particularly by Charlie Wright, who looks like a slightly less evil Ezra Miller and gives a genuinely funny performance as permanently perplexed metalhead Rodrick.

The ratio of giggles to groans runs about 50/50.

For once, it'll be the grownups asking the kids: "Are we there yet?"

My two under-10s were laughing like drains at regular intervals.

A dirge of unfunny scatological material, techno-anxiety and child endangerment masquerading as familial bonding.

Despite the casting overhaul, it's the same old Wimpy Kid in that it still hasn't figured out how to make its characters as likeable or knowingly engaging as Kinney's simple line drawings and text.
