Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul Review
In 2012, it seemed as if the Wimpy Kid film series had seen its last day on the big screen with Dog Days, but as it turns out, that wasn’t the case. Now, the Heffley family makes their triumphant return to the big screen with a whole new cast that brings a fresh look to the franchise.
Director David Bowers returns to direct the fourth film the series, Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul, now playing in theaters. The only thing different this time around is the new cast of actors. Jason Ducker has now taken over the role of Greg (previously played by Zachary Gordon), and he does a terrific job making the character his own while embodying Gordon’s portrayal. Charlie Wright takes on the role of Rodrick, Greg’s wannabe rockstar brother. While actor Wright is funny and a born comedian, it felt like the film made the character dumber than the original franchise. Alicia Silverstone and Tom Everett Scott pick up the mantle of the Heffley parents (previously played by Rachael Harris and Steve Zahn).
