QUICK TAKE:
Comedy: A 12-year-old goes on a zany four-day road trip with his family to get to his grandmother's 90th birthday party.
PLOT:
Greg Heffley (JASON DRUCKER) is a 12-year-old boy whose life may as well be over, what with going viral on the Internet after video has spread of him accidentally getting his hand stuck on a soiled diaper at a restaurant's play area. To make matters worse, his parents -- Susan (ALICIA SILVERSTONE) and Frank (TOM EVERETT SCOTT) -- have just announced that the family -- that also includes 16-year-old Rodrick (CHARLIE WRIGHT) and their toddler brother, Manny (WYATT & DYLAN WALTERS) -- will be embarking on a four-day van trip to their grandmother's 90th birthday party.

To add insult to injury, Susan has announced this will be a technology free journey, not only shocking Greg and Rodrick, but also Frank who needs to work while on the road. Undeterred, Susan wants this to be a family bonding experience, all of which further complicates Greg's plan on trying to redeem his fragile social status. Having heard that online gamer Mac Digby (JOSHUA HOOVER) will be a gaming expo not far from his grandmother's house, Greg believes if he gets footage of him and Mac together, that might repair the damage from now having the moniker of "Diaper Hands."

Things become even more complicated when Greg accidentally runs afoul of a bearded father and his family. From that point on, Greg tries to avoid Mr. Beardo (CHRIS COPPOLA) all as one thing after another threatens his plan.

WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
It's a good bet some will, especially if they're fans of the previous films in this franchise or the books on which those are based. -
WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: PG
For some rude humor.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
