Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Dog Days

Synopsis: Summer vacation started, and Greg has his own way to enjoy it with video games. However, his father wants him to go outside and stop playing video games, and his mother has her own plans, including a reading club. In addition, Greg can't get along with his father. The only thing they have in common is the hatred for the Lil Cutie Comics. Things only get worse after the stay at the beachside cabin goes totally wrong. Will anything go right? At least there's Holly Hills.

Want to grab that?

I can't believe it's so crowded.

School isn't even out yet.

Maybe we should come back.

How about never?

That sound good?

A family swim

is a great way to kick off the summer.

Let's not forget, opening day is free!

I hate going in there.

Remember,

move fast and keep your eyes down.

Sorry. Excuse me.

Greg!

I'm going to see if I can get a good spot.

Watch Manny.

What? But...

Manny?

Manny, no!

Washing my hands.

No, no, no.

But I'm so close to getting...

Summertime is for real games,

not video games. Healthy stuff.

Like, let's see...

Swimming?

Time to sell some C.D.'s.

Are you kidding?

Rodrick,

you can't play your music that loud.

Lenwood?

Is that Lenwood Heath?

Mr. Heffley, it's good to see you.

Mrs. Heffley.

Hi.

So... you've changed.

I've been going to Spag Union Prep School.

They really turned me around.

You may remember

I was a bit of a troublemaker.

Nah.

You're cleaning all this up!

You hear me?

So, Spag Union,

what grade does that start?

Eighth grade, sir.

You're going into the eighth grade.

Cannonball!

It's good to see you, sir. Ma'am.

He called me "sir".

He used to be so cool. Like me.

Lded Diper.

Bubby, over here!

Greg, honey, go help your brother.

What's so funny?

I'm peeing!

I have one more week of school,

then it's summer vacation.

Which sounds great, but for me,

summer vacation is basically

a three-month guilt trip.

Just because the weather's nice,

everyone expects you

to be out all day frolicking.

But the truth is, I've always been

more of an indoor person.

To me, the perfect way to spend

summer vacation

is in front of the TV playing video games.

Unfortunately, my dad's idea of a perfect

summer is the opposite of mine.

The real problem is, me and my dad

have nothing in common.

But as long as I stay

one step ahead of him...

I think I have a shot at a fun summer.

Last day of school!

I know. It's kind of sad.

Sad? Are you crazy?

I'm going to play video games all summer.

It's going to be awesome.

There's one person I will miss.

Hey, guys!

Hi, Holly!

You'll see her when school starts again.

In three months?

A lot can happen in three months.

Hey, Holly. How was your summer?

Great! I got married.

You know my husband... Chirag.

Hello, Gregory.

Last period of the school year!

But it is still a school day, so...

open Discovering History to chapter 7.

It's the last day of school.

Like anyone brought their books.

Classic Greg Heffley.

I pity him.

Of course you're not prepared.

Mr. Draybick, I'd be honored

to share my book with Greg Heffley.

Fregley claims to wear a special cologne,

but everyone knows he just never washes.

That's great!

Rowley.

I need to make a connection

with Holly this summer.

I'm tired of being...

"friends".

What's wrong with being "friends"?

We're friends.

I'll get her to sign my yearbook.

She signs lots of yearbooks.

But when she signs mine, I'll ask her

to write her phone number, too.

Okay!

The rest of the class is free time.

Enjoy.

Hey, Holly.

What are you doing this summer?

Just regular summer stuff.

Volunteering at the shelter,

building with Habitat for Humanity...

and giving tennis

lessons to little kids.

What about you?

He's going to get to the end

of Twisted Wizard 2 this summer!

If I have time

because of all the other stuff I'm doing.

Hey, can I sign your yearbook?

Yeah, sure.

You're only in seventh grade once.

That's not always true, by the way.

I think Andy Spitz

has been in seventh grade for four years.

And... why don't you write down

your phone number, too?
