Watch this if you liked: “Diary Of A Wimpy Kid” and “Diary Of A Wimpy Kid: Rodrick Rules”

American teenagers always consider summer holidays to be the best time of a year and Greg Heffley, the normally apathetic kid, is no exception. He is excited for summer break, not because he looks forward to the outdoor activities, but to staying at home and playing his video games in "Diary Of A Wimpy Kid: Dog Days".

Directed by David Bowers, "Diary Of A Wimpy Kid: Dog Days" once again chronicles the story of Greg (Zachary Gordon), the teenage troublemaker. Here, Greg is eager to get closer to his high school crush, Holly (Peyton List), who is coincidentally also spending time at the luxurious sports club that his family is at during the long summer holidays. Between that and having to deal with his father Frank's (Steve Zahn) high expectations about him, Greg needs helping hands from his buddy Rowley and cunning Goth brother Rodrick.

There are no surprises to be had in this sequel. You will still be watching Greg in his usual eponymous style as he tries to outsmart his family and friends for his own interest this time, a pretty little blonde who is driving the 14-year-old boy crazy from day to night, unlike the previous movies - where Greg just wants to be the most popular kid in school in the first while the second had him hatching a plan to thwart his parents' misguided attempts to have he and his brother bond in the second instalment of the Jeff Kinney's book adaptation.

It is not difficult for the casting team to find a young actor like Zachary Gordon in the States but Gordon shows potential in his portrayal of Greg Heffley, something we have seen in former child star like Shia Lebouf before. Recasting him is a wise choice as his appearance in the previous two movies had already made a remarkable impression in the eyes of fans. He really makes the role come alive on the big screen, forming empathy with the teenagers with his immature and amusing acts and even adults, when they recall their silly adolescent memories within the 94-minute run. However, it makes us wonder how far and how long the young star can go should the team decide to shoot another sequel as he is aging.

There are times when the stories appears to be a little old-fashioned like those in old school flicks during the 90s and 2000s. They may seem magical on the book pages but not on the silver screen.

One of the more notable scenes of the film would be Greg's cool and arrogant brother Rodrick performing a fairly surprising tune - Justin Bieber's "Baby" in front of Holly's sister at her sweet 16 birthday party. That will surely make your jaw drop.

Overall, regardless of whether you have watched the previous two movies or not, go catch "Diary Of A Wimpy Kid 3: Dog Days" to spend some time learning some valuable life lessons through the eyes of the wimpy Greg Heffley.

"Diary Of A Wimpy Kid: Dog Days" is also available in 2D in Malaysia.
