Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Dog Days

PG

During his summer vacation, "Wimpy Kid" Greg Heffley, the hero of the phenomenally successful book series, hatches a plan to pretend he has a job at a ritzy country club -- which fails to keep him away from the season's dog days, including embarrassing mishaps at a public pool and a camping trip that goes horribly wrong.

STARRING:Zachary Gordon, Steve Zahn, Robert Capron, Rachel Harris

Who won't? The "Wimpy Kid" series is fun for younger kids, a hoot for teens and pure nostalgia for mom and dad.

THREE GOOD REASONS

  • 1Didn't we all know people like Rowley and Fregley? Now's your chance to relive those days from the safety of adulthood and a theater seat.
  • 2"Dog Days" actually covers events in two of the "Wimpy Kid" books: "The Last Straw" and "Dog Days."
  • 3The "Wimpy Kid" books are now part of the national culture, with more than 47 million copies in print in the U.S.

The original "Diary of a Wimpy Kid" began as a website in 2004 on Funbrain.com. Demand was so high that creator Jeff Kinney published the first book in 2007. You can still visit the original site.
