Rotten Tomatoes® Score

Critics Consensus: With an all-new cast but the same juvenile humor, Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul finds the franchise still stuck in arrested -- and largely unfunny -- development.

The all-new cast is fine, but this "Wimpy" entry feels skimpy on jokes and charm.

New cast, but more of the same gross-out humor, hijinks.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul is the fourth movie in the series based on Jeff Kinney's super-popular Diary of a Wimpy Kid books, but it has an all-new cast. In this installment, Greg Heffley (now played by Jason Drucker) is forced to go on a road trip with his family; predictably, chaos ensues. As in the previous three movies, there's a lot of gross-out humor involving pee, poop, and vomit, as well as some insult language ("loser," "fat," "stupid," etc.) and chase scenes. Stressful moments include car accidents, Greg being pursued by an angry man, and a runaway boat. There's a running theme of putting technology aside to better enjoy family time. And although much of the behavior in the movie isn't particularly admirable, the characters do come together in the end, and -- amid the sibling torment and fart jokes -- there are positive messages about the importance of family and perseverance.
