    The best of the Wimpy Kid movies. I was smiling and laughing throughout the entire movie. It's hilarious and brings several life lessons for kids to the table. The cast, as always, did a fantastic job. If you enjoyed the other Diary of a Wimpy Kid movies you'll enjoy this. Hilarious and one of the best movies of the year.

    The best of the three! Dog Days delivers much more of a sentimental lesson but still pushing in the vast amount of fun and awesomeness the series needs.

    If this really is the end of this film franchise, then I say it ended on a pretty high note. Its all the same wacky and witty humor of the first 2, but this time its during the summer. You see Greg getting in embarrasing and troublesome situations a lot more this time around. Yes, this wimpy kid wants to play video games all summer, but his dad tries to change that. That is one big plot point. His relationship with his dad. Anyways, it is not the best of the series (Rodrick Rules is) but it is one heck of a fun conclusion. Expand

    Has to be the best out of the 3! Hilarious, and when you see the bond between Greg and Holly starting to grow, it feels great! Especially loved the end - no spoilers here. Want to watch it? Go ahead! It will have you in stitches. Excellent cast too!

    It's the latest installment in what now forms a lightly likable trilogy of films based on Jeff Kinney's Wimpy Kid books.

    Viewers enduring early adolescence or those grappling with its psychic scars will recognize the honesty in the comic humiliation.

    Fox is smart to keep turning this stuff out before star Gordon grows too old for the role. He's terrific in a Leave it to Beaver way, perfectly capturing the angst of being in-betweener.
