Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul 15

BUY TICKETS 3pm Sunday 9 July

DIRECTOR David Bowers
CAST Jason Drucker, Alicia Silverstone, Charlie Wright, Tom Everett Scott

Greg Heffley returns and heads on a road trip with his hapless family, officially to visit his great grandmother, although the Wimpy Kid is heading to a gamer convention.

A wimp will rise! 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 – a cross-country adventure turns into an experience they will never forget!
(2017 USA 91 mins)

The result is surprisingly pleasurable. Sure, ‘The Long Haul’ checks off all the expected road-trip clichés: run-ins with a rival family, cockroach motel horrors, inadvertent off-roading. But it’s mostly carried off with aplomb, particularly by Wright, who looks like a slightly less evil Ezra Miller (creepy Credence Barebone in ‘Fantastic Beasts’) and gives a genuinely funny performance as permanently perplexed metalhead Rodrick. Tom Huddleston, Time Out
