My ten-year-old daughter is a huge Diary of a Wimpy Kid fan. She is always reading the book series. In this film, the cast is entirely new! Would Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul live up to expectations?

In the film, the family sets off on a four day trip to MeeMaw's 90th birthday celebration. Will the family survive that long in the car together? Let's just say you will be laughing because everything that can go wrong does!

Personally, I was worried about the new cast. My daughter was quite upset when she initially learned that the cast had aged out.

It was quite unexpected to see Alicia Silverstone (Clueless) play the mom. I grew up around the same time as her. She did a great job playing the role. I was most impressed with Roderick. He nailed the role playing the older brother. He was so over the top!

My whole family agreed that this cast did a great job! Keira liked them better!

Should you see this film? Yes! Even if you've never read a single book this a great family-friendly movie!

Yes, the story line is quite predictable but you will be in stitches laughing, and I loved the moral in the film. I don't want to share too much and give all of the goodies away so you will have to go see it!

My husband and I rated this film about 3.5 stars. Keira gave it 5 stars and immediately wanted to go back and watch it again! A great movie for tweens!

Is your child a fan of Diary of a Wimpy Kid? Will you see the film?
