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.
