Everybody’s favorite wimp, Greg Heffley (Zachary Gordon), is back for three times the fun in the latest film based on the super-popular book series! When Greg’s dad (Steve Zahn) threatens to send him to military school if he doesn’t stay out of trouble, Greg finds all-new ways to land himself in the doghouse! For starters, Greg’s in over his head when he pretends to work at the swanky country club where Rowley’s family has a membership. Things don’t go much better on a father-son camping trip with the Wilderness Explorers, and then there’s the Heffley’s new dog, Sweetie, who fetches even more trouble for Greg in this hilarious family film!

Most Mischievous Movie Pets

Sweetie is lovable but, at times, completely devious! In addition to Sweetie, here are some more of the most mischievous movie pets including everyone’s favorite lasagna lover, Garfield and canine icon, Marmaduke.


pet movies

Most people don’t know that in real life, Beethoven’s real name is Chris.  He was owned and trained by Karl Lewis Miller who also trained animals for Cujo, K-9, Babe, and many others infamous animal flicks.


pet movies

From 1982 to 1991, twelve primetime Garfield cartoon specials and one hour-long primetime documentary celebrating the character's 10th anniversary were aired but the first film about the clever feline created in 1978, did not come out until 2004.

Marley, Marley and Me

pet movies

Because the film covers 14 years in the life of Marley, 22 different Yellow Labradors played the part alongside Owen Wilson and Jennifer Anniston, who continuously try to maintain their marriage and family despite Marley’s opposing ambitions.


pet movies

Owen Wilson lent his voice to the oversized-but-loveable pooch who moves to a new neighborhood with his family, where he proceeds to – accidentally - wreak havoc.

Hooch, Turner and Hooch

pet movies

Before he was a two-time Oscar winner and beloved film icon, Tom Hanks was a detective trying to solve crime, while guarding his star witness, a large and slobbery Dogue de Bordeaux named Hooch.

Beast, AKA Hercules, The Sandlot

pet movies

Hercules, known to the neighborhood kids as “the beast,” is an English Mastiff with a penchant for hoarding lost baseballs. After five failed rescue attempts for one very special ball, it turns out all the kids had to do was ask the owner, and suffer the affectionate slobbering of a very big dog.

Sweetie, Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Dog Days

pet movies

When Sweetie the Labradoodle first comes to the Heffley house, Greg wants to give him a legitimate name like 'Ripjaw' or 'Shredder' but Susan thinks them too violent and opts for something more her taste.


My son has read all of the books in the Diary of a Wimpy Kid series so far.  He wasn't sure if the movies would be as good as the book series, but he was pleasantly surprised that the movies were just as funny.  We have watched the first two movies together and sympathized with poor Greg and the problems he faces with school and family life.  We missed this one when it was out in theaters, but we are excited for its release on DVD/Blu-rayThis latest movie looks like it will be just as entertaining as all the others and the special features look fun too!

Diary of a Wimpy Kid Dog Days releases to DVD and Blu-ray Dec. 18th!


Where to Purchase:  Pre-order for $25.99 on Fox Connect
