Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul movie quotes bring the laughs to the movie about a family on an adventurous road trip. The family comedy is the fourth in the Diary of a Wimpy Kid franchise based on the books by Jeff Kinney. Kinney co-wrote the screenplay along with David Bowers and Adam Sztykiel. Directed by David Bowers, Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul opened theatrically in the United States on May 19, 2017.
In Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul, Greg Heffley (Jason Drucker) is your typical kid who complains about typical kid things, such as having little control over his life. Along with brother Rodrick (Charlie Wright), Greg convinces parents Susan and Frank (Alicia Silverstone and Tom Everett Scott respectively) to go on a family road trip to Indiana.
While the guise of the road trip is to attend the boys' grandmother's 90th birthday party, really they want to attend a video game expo happening nearby. As easy as this may sound, surviving the road trip adventures and actually getting to the gamer expo is much harder than the brothers anticipated.
