SCHOOL HOLIDAY MOVIE RELEASES
The popular Wimpy Kid series of primary school misadventures continues, with the slapstick action this time taking place over a hectic summer holiday.
They say: Not-bad box office and mixed reviews in the US, where even the naysayers admitted this has more heart than the usual cookie-cutter animation served up to kids.
Wesay: Good-natured live-action flicks for pre-teen boys are something of a rarity, which makes the delightful Wimpy Kid series something of a treasure. (Review, Page 11.) Directed by David Bowers ( Flushed Away). Running time 94 minutes. Screens at Robina, Pacific Fair, Australia Fair, Coolangatta, Harbour Town, Tweed City.
