“..the film is more a patched-together collection of anecdotes than a coherent story..”
by Neil Genzlinger [New York Times]
“..many scenes are amusing, particularly those that humanize and/or humiliate and/or dump trash on Rodrick..”
by Amy Biancolli [San Francisco Chronicl]
“..like its predecessors, satisfy "Wimpy Kid" fans, but a bigger problem -- what to do when your young actors grow faster than your characters? -- lies ahead for Fox..”
by Lael Loewenstein [Variety]
2 of 5

“..I think it's possible that all tween audiences, wimpy or not, deserve better than this..”
by Glenn Kenny [MSN Movies]
“..ends the series' winning streak, or at least slows it down to a panting, dog-day crawl..”
by Stephanie Zacharek [Los Angeles Times]
2.5 of 4

“..Days isn't interested in going beyond that premise, so don't expect much in terms of kids learning the value of labor, first love or sibling relationships. Little Miss Sunshine, this isn't..”
by Scott Bowles [USA Today]
“..as the sort of mischief that felt cutely wise-alecky up to this point often just doesn't work here..”
by Tom Russo [Boston Globe]
2 of 5

“.."Dog Days" wants to have fun, but doesn't know that the best fun happens when you don't plan it..”
by Joe Neumaier [New York Daily News]
3 of 5

“.."Dog Days" is another step in the right direction, even if there is still plenty of room for improvement..”
by Bill Goodykoontz [Arizona Republic]

4 MINUTE MILE :

THE CAPTIVE :
