I watched this one when it came out on DVD.

The film starts out with the end of school, and the start of summer vacation. Greg Heffley attempts to get his crush Holly Hills’ phone number, and fails. But the pair eventually meet up again after they see her giving tennis lessons at his friend’s Rowley’s country club.

But Greg’s dad also tries to spend time with his son on his summer vacation. After banishing all video games, he forces Greg to go camping, but gets angry when Greg constantly gets into trouble. Which makes his dad ponder about sending Greg to strict private school that reformed a local bully that once tormented the household.

Overall I really liked Dog Days, though I have to say the two books it’s based on are much better. But it’s goofy-funny enough to please most fans of the series. Though it’s unlikely to win-over anyone who wasn’t impressed by the two previous installments. With aging actors though, I wasn’t shocked to learn that a fourth film didn’t happen.
