Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul

Director
David Bowers
Certificate
PG
Running Time
90 mins

The fourth film in the enjoyable Wimpy Kid series based on Jeff Kinney‘s bestsellers isn’t billed as a reboot, but that’s effectively what it is. The actors who previously played Gregg Heffley and his brother Rodrick will soon turn 20, so they’ve been cruelly replaced by younger child stars.

Adapted from the ninth book in the series, this one sees Gregg persuading the family to go on a road trip to celebrate granny’s 90th birthday, his ulterior motive being to attend a gaming convention.
