More From Resident Evil: The Long Haul Review Share. An inauthentic family film with a far too prophetic title. While the films themselves bare the same titles, characters, and even send-ups to the basic cartoon-style of the books, they feel more like substanceless clones of those stories, with all of the same ingredients, and yet none of the flavor.
Init looked like the Wimpy Kid films had finally reached their end too with the release of Dog Days, an apparent send-off to the story of Greg then played by Zachary Gordon and his unconventional family. With each film in the franchise making less money than its predecessor, it seemed fair to say that the Wimpy Kid franchise was, indeed, done for good.
Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul marks the fourth film in the franchise, with returning director David Bowers behind the helm. But instead of the same ensemble as the previous three Wimpy Kid outings, The Long Haul features an entirely new cast of actors playing the Heffley family.
Jason Drucker has replaced Gordon as Greg, while Charlie Wright takes over in the role of his wannabe rockstar brother, Rodrick. Rachael Harris and Steve Zahn have also said goodbye to the roles of the Heffley parents, with the duo this time around being played by Alicia Silverstone and Tom Everett Scott.
Of course, neither of the two boys are happy about being stuck in the car with their family for multiple days, and while they agree to go on the trip with their parents, both have plans of sneaking away to a video game convention happening the same day as the birthday celebration.
