Things go from bad to worse for the 'wimpy kid' Greg

Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul (U)

Twelve-year-old Greg Heffley (Jason Drucker) receives an unwanted gift in a children's ball pit during a visit to a themed family restaurant with the rest of his clan.

Video footage of his ordeal goes viral. Stung by his online infamy as Diaper Hands, Greg resolves to restore his tainted reputation by making a video with his online idol, Mac Digby (Joshua Hoover), who is due to attend a video gaming convention in Indiana. Alas, Greg is already committed to a Heffley family road trip to his grandmother's 90th birthday celebrations where all devices have been banned by his mum, Susan (Alicia Silverstone).

Following their trusty SatNav, the Heffleys careen from one mishap to the next including a stomach-churning spin on a ride at a county fair and bruising exchanges with fellow traveller Mr Beardo (Chris Coppola) and his family.
