Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Dog Days

The franchise’s third installment, Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Dog Days, finds titular wimp Greg (Zachary Gordon) at odds with his father (Steve Zahn) about what constitutes a good summer. For Greg, that would be playing videogames all day, every day. But to keep Dad happy, he pretends to get a job at the country club where the girl he likes and his best friend (Robert Capron) are members. Though often self-centered and conniving, Greg remains a likable kid, and the movie entertains by pulling off over-the-top scenarios that set up digestible life lessons for youngsters. B+
