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


In the third film of the franchise, Greg finds himself battling the heat and his emotions as school lets out for Summer.

  • Poster: C


It's on par with the rest of the posters in the series, which is to say it's somewhat childish, unimpressive and geared to the right crowd with the wrong inspiration.

  • Trailer: D+


Unless you've already found enjoyment in this franchise, this trailer isn't going to help. The film is designed for an immature audience, so it is unsurprising that much of what passes for humor in the trailer is immature as well. While some teen-centered films are more interesting appearing, this one is not.
