Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Dog Days
The film starts at the beginning of summer vacation. Frank thinks that Greg Zachary Gordon should spend his time outdoors, playing sports, and doing activities that will build up their father-son relationship. Most of the film is made up of episodic slapstick comedy, where Greg manages to get himself in embarrassing situations that work themselves into even more humiliating results. A typical example is when Greg loses his swim trunks at the country club swimming pool and a girl refuses to give them back. Instead of explaining what happened Greg gets himself into greater trouble, ending up high diving without them.
Uh-oh, it looks like your Internet Explorer is out of date.

The story begins with Greg Heffley explaining how his mom wants him to get some sunlight in the room while Greg is playing video games. Within a few weeks, Rowley's dad gets sick of Greg's constructive criticism about the quality of service of the club, and bans him from entering the place with Rowley. The beach trip that they've planned is also cancelled due to the lack of money, so Greg's family goes to the town pool, which he dislikes because of older, hairy men showering in the open shower stalls. Susan takes Greg to get a haircut as she thinks he looks "shaggy", but instead of his regular place, she takes him to Bombshells Beauty Salon , where Susan and Gramma get their hair done. While he is there, he reads a tabloid and remembers that Gramma reads tabloids.
The book starts with Greg Heffley describing how he is a "indoor person," and how he intends to spend his summer vacation playing video games. His mother, Susan, wants him to go outdoors more often. Money is tight, so Greg and his family can't go to the beach. However, Susan still intends to have the "best summer ever. Greg invites his best friend Rowley for a sleepover, where they watch a horror movie about a muddy hand who strangles people, which scares them.
