Reviews: Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Dog Days (2012)

Reviews for this film from our members:

  • Luke Bonanno @ DVDizzy.com
    • Excerpt: In this age of tentpoles, the Wimpy Kid films are an anomaly. Inexpensively made for around $20 million a film, these adaptations of Jeff Kinney’s book series succeed not with 3D, superheroes, or computer animation, but old-fashioned family-friendly comedy driven by relatable characters and situations.
  • Peter Canavese @ GrouchoReviews.com
    • Excerpt: Even for an episodic kiddie farce, Dog Days seems overly familiar in its comic premises (oh no! peeing in the municipal pool!) and conflicts…but it’ll all be new to its intended audience…
  • Kevin Carr @ 7M Pictures
  • Jim Dixon @ Examiner.com
    • Excerpt: On its third installment, the “Diary of a Wimpy Kid” movies, of all things, are beginning to look like a franchise. The latest outing, “Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Dog Days” takes on the travails of summer vacation and does so with a satisfying quotient of laughs.
  • Mark Dujsik @ Mark Reviews Movies
    • Excerpt: At least the jokes about bodily functions are out of the way the beginning … unless one counts the family eating a pot roast that had been recently covered in dog saliva.
  • Susan Granger @ www.susangranger.com
    • Excerpt: Formulaic family-friendly sequel, as Greg’s angst takes a more adolescent turn.
  • MaryAnn Johanson @ FlickFilosopher.com
    • Excerpt: There’s way too much crass and crude for this third outing in the series to do much beyond stoke juvenile disgust with human bodily functions…
  • Benjamin Kramer @ The Voracious Filmgoer
  • [New – 1/10] | Matthew Lucas @ From the Front Row
    • Excerpt: Absolutely exudes the strange, messy essence of childhood at every turn.
  • Tom Santilli @ Examiner.com
    • Excerpt: …they are the rare films that can be thoroughly enjoyed by young children, teenagers and adults alike.
