12/17/12: Diary of a Wimpy Kid Dog Days

I had heard really good things about the Diary of a Wimpy Kid books so when I had the opportunity to review the movie I knew the kids would like it.  Diary of a Wimpy Kid Dog Days Releases TOMORROW on Blu-ray and DVD!
I really enjoyed the movie.  It was a fun movie of a kid who loved to play video games and had dreams of staying in all summer to play them have a great time outdoors having fun with friends and a girl he has a crush on.  Plus folding in some great Dad and Son time in between.
 It is always funny to watch someone play Tennis that really doesn't know how to play.  It gave the kids some laughs.
All the characters are pretty likable and my kids really enjoyed the movie.  I liked it too.  It definitely is a fun movie to watch and now my son wants to read the books.
More about the movie:
Diary of a Wimpy Kid 3 Everybody’s favorite wimp, Greg Heffley (Zachary Gordon), is back for three times the fun in the latest film based on the super-popular book series! When Greg’s dad (Steve Zahn) threatens to send him to military school if he doesn’t stay out of trouble, Greg finds all-new ways to land himself in the doghouse! 
For starters, Greg’s in over his head when he pretends to work at the swanky country club where Rowley’s family has a membership. Things don’t go much better on a father-son camping trip with the Wilderness Explorers, and then there’s the Heffley’s new dog, Sweetie, who fetches even more trouble for Greg in this hilarious family film! Director: David Bowers Screenplay by: Maya Forbes and Wallace Wolodarsky, based upon the book by Jeff Kinney Producers: Nina Jacobson, Brad Simpson Cast: Zachary Gordon, Robert Capron, Devon Bostick, Rachael Harris, and Steve Zahn
