The fourth movie of the Diary Of A Wimpy Kid series (based on Jeff Kinney’s book series) features a new cast. The original cast is gone, but it’s not a reboot. In Diary Of A Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul, the Heffley family takes a long road trip for grandma’s 90th birthday. And because Greg is always getting into trouble, the trip goes wrong. The film is funny and is entertaining for the entire family. Diary Of A Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul is available now on 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray, DVD and digital HD. Note: the movie is rated PG for some rude humor.
Two Movies for the Price of One
Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment is offering the first Diary of a Wimpy Kid on Digital HD for free when you purchase Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul on Blu-ray or DVD. As far as I know, there isn’t an end date for the promo. However, I’m sure the offer is only good while supplies last. Look for the “Includes Bonus Movie on Digital HD” sticker on the packaging.
Batgirl is in the Movie
Jason Drucker played the part of the main character, Greg Heffley. But Alicia Silverstone was the one who caught my attention. She played the part of Greg’s mom, Susan. The reason she stood out for me was because she looked familiar, but I didn’t recognized her until I saw the credits. It’s been a long time since I’ve seen her as Batgirl in the Batman and Robin movie. Other cast members included Tom Everett Scott (Frank Heffley), Charlie Wright (Rodrick Heffley), Owen Asztalos (Rowley), Dylan Walters (Manny Heffley), Wyatt Walters (Manny Heffley), Joshua Hoover (Mac Digby), Chris Coppola (Mr. Beardo (Christopher A. Coppola)), Mira Silverman (Brandi Beardo), Carlos Guerrero (Luis), Danny Vinson (Hog Man), Stephen ‘Big Steve’ Dupree (tall farmer), Neva Howell (farmer lady), and Ricky Muse (butter vendor). Diary Of A Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul was directed by David Bowers.
