Like when you accidentally buy Great Value chips instead of Lays.

This film is unwatchable. I suffered through the 91 minutes, which somehow felt longer than the extended edition of Fellowship of the Ring. The new cast was horrific, the script was aimed at toddlers and the acting was the worst that I have seen in recent memory. While I do not think that the original films are phenomenal, I spent the majority of the film wishing that I was watching one of them. Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul lacked charm and felt like when you accidentally buy Great Value chips instead of Lays.

stupidity gets tiring

Greg Heffley (Jason Drucker) is horrified when his embarrassing Diaper Hands video goes viral. His mother (Alicia Silverstone) has the family going on a road trip to Meemaw's 90th birthday party. He intends to make a detour to Player Expo to meet his gaming hero Mac Digby and create a new video to overshadow Diaper Hands. It starts badly when his mom takes everybody's tech. His dad (Tom Everett Scott) is desperate to contact his work. His brother Rodrick (Charlie Wright) needs money to fix his van. His younger brother Manny needs a pacifier. It's a long, chaotic, cross-country road trip.

It's a matter of time when Alicia Silverstone does a silly family movie as the mom. Beggars can't be choosers and this is not choosy at all. It's silly in a bad way. The new cast is less than the original. Rodrick is stupid but in a bad cartoon way. It's a functional family movie up to a point. The birds are one too many stupidity. This should have been a new kiddie version of Vacation. It has more in common with the Vacation reboot. There are heart touching moments and good fun but it's all overwhelmed by the stupidity.

Hmm...

Greg, 12 years old and the middle brother with an almost-toddler younger brother and an idiot-psycho-teenager older brother, is taken on a road trip by his mother who is determined to keep the family isolated from electronic devices.

After 3 tolerably entertaining family movies, the franchise has been recast - we have 5 new actors playing Greg, his parents, and his older and younger brothers. I do not think the recasting is an improvement. This is especially so in the case of older brother Roderick who is now played by a young actor who clearly has oriental family somewhere in his near past. I don't have a problem with this, but it does make you raise your eyebrows a bit.

The story is dumb (especially the ongoing plot thread concerning Greg falling foul of a large bearded fellow on broadly the same itinerary. I know the crux of the plot is Greg getting into trouble, but this was just so stupid as to defy credibility.

This was a criticism which could be levelled at the whole film. The previous ones were more or less believable, this one was not.

Even if it had been funny, I think I would still have balked somewhat at a kids/family film where one of the gags was Greg sitting on the other side of a shower curtain, listening to graphic sounds of defecation from two feet away. Farts are one thing, t*rds plopping into the toilet are something quite other.

It was weird seeing Alicia Silverstone, once a sexy nymphet, now playing A middle-aged Mum. One thing stays the same, though: her mouth still has a strange sort of half-life of its own.

This film could have been a lot better. A LOT better. But it wasn't.
