The fourth movie introduces a new cast, and the story is mostly based on the ninth and tenth books in the series. The Heffley family go on a long road trip to attend Meemaw’s 90th birthday, but Greg hopes to divert their route to a gaming expo in Indianapolis. The mood gets tense right from the start when Greg’s mother confiscates all of the family’s cell phones. This family comedy doesn’t offer anything we haven’t seen in dozen other road movies, but it provides 90 minutes of good-natured fun and a few amusing gross-out moments.
