The Review

Well, it's been a fun adventure through the Diary of a Wimpy Kid series. Now we get to see the family like never before. The great Heffley road trip: an epic cross-country adventure to celebrate a momentous family occasion. Shortly after it begins, things begin to go downhill. Mom declares that it's a device free trip and helps to provide ideas to keep everyone entertained. Greg and Rodrick have different ideas as to what would be an epic road trip. With the family at odds from the beginning, you can imagine the chaos that ensues. The final product ends up a little bit of National Lampoons vacations, mixed up with some other iconic movie references. That sounds like something that might work, at least in theory. Detailing what and where it went wrong would be longer than our 300-word guarantee. I can say that there are brief comedic moments that will distract you from the rest of the story. Is that enough to save it? That's a difficult one to answer, to each their own. Just be prepared that this is a completely different story from what you're used to from the Wimpy Kid series. With an entirely different cast to boot...
