Do you avoid the Cheese Touch at all costs? Do you know that “Loded Diper” is more than just a new parent’s nightmare? And can you tell the difference between Heffley, Rowley and Fregley? If so, then you’re one of the millions of households (mine included!) that loves the Diary of a Wimpy Kid series.
The wildly popular book series by Jeff Kinney has been made into two equally successful movies, and the third, Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Dog Days, hits theaters on Friday.
A perfect movie for summer viewing, Dog Days once again follows middle-schooler Greg Heffley (Zachary Gordon) as he comes up with an almost perfect scheme to spend his vacation by a ritzy country-club pool instead of getting a job. Returning to join the fun are Robert Capron as his best friend, Rowley, Devon Bostick as big brother/rock-star wannabe Rodrick, Steve Zahn and Rachael Harris as parents Frank and Susan and Peyton List as Holly Hill, the object of Greg’s affections.
To tide you and your kids over until the movie opens on Friday, we’ve got a preview to show you. Take a look at it after the jump!
