“Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul”
by Holly McClure


Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul is the fourth movie based on the popular Diary of a Wimpy Kid books. This time around there’s a new cast with a new wimpy kid, Greg Heffley (Jason Drucker) who’s forced to go on a family road trip with his parents (Alicia Silverstone and Tom Everett Scott) and siblings. What starts out as a fun family trip turns into a journey of chaos.

The PG is for ….

…crude and gross humor, disrespectful behavior and comments from the kids, as well as out-of-control situations. There are problems like the boys lying to their parents, then taking an Uber to a gaming convention, There are several chase scenes, a runaway boat that crashes, the car is destroyed and more. Older kids will understand the humor but honestly, adults may laugh at some of the comments and “parent” frustrations, more than the kids. I enjoyed see Silverstone playing a mom and I liked the fact that her character tries hard to get her family off of their phones to communicate with each other and focuses on the impact of too much social media – a problem that should resonate with most parents. In the end, Greg learns big lessons and there’s a positive message about the importance of family. With so little out there for younger children to see these days, this PG family film is best for kids 8 and up to enjoy.
