“A wimp will rise”

Copyrighted, Twentieth Century Fox Film Corporation

Here’s what the distributor says about their film: “Greg convinces his family to take a road trip to attend his great grandmother's 90th birthday as a cover for what he really wants: to attend a nearby gamer convention. Unsurprisingly, things do not go according to plan and Heffley family antics ensue. The trip goes hilariously off course—thanks to Greg's scheme to (finally!) become famous.”

Movie Critics

…a bumpy, humor-free ride… a dirge of unfunny scatological material, techno-anxiety and child endangerment masquerading as familial bonding. …
—Katie Walsh, Tribune News Service

…it still hasn’t figured out how to make its characters as likeable or knowingly engaging as Kinney’s simple line drawings and text. …
—Michael Rechtshaffen, Los Angeles Times

…Every single sight gag in “Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul” telegraphs its punchline, for what seems like an eternity. …[2]
—Jane Horwitz, Washington Post

…it doesn't do anything new and isn't particularly good. …[2/5]
—Yvonne Condes, Common Sense Media

…a tired story, the family road trip that goes outlandishly awry, and the result is another forgettable film.…
—Neil Genzlinger, The New York Times

…some of the humor is of a lowbrow peepee/caca type that will have most adults rolling their eyes, there are bits everyone will enjoy, notably a clever “I Confess” car game that Greg uses to give prankster Rodrick a taste of his own medicine. …
—Dennis Harvey, Variety

…Lacks jokes… this series has lost much of its charm, and possibly a little bit of its soul. [2/4]
—Rafer Guzmán, Long Island Newsday

…isn't full of laughs… The adults’ acting is crude and clownish. The kid actors are insufferable. … with the three major joke groups — pee, poop and puke — all over-represented. …[1½/5]
—Stephen Whitty, New York Daily News

…over-the-top-stupid… less fun than a family road trip… [1/5]
