    Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul


    First and foremost, let's get this out of the way.

In fact, there are some very likeable traits about this movie, such as the song "Evermore", some of the villager's costumes (namely, the bimbetttes, whose dresses I found beautiful) , et cetera. BUT, I still felt like something was missing. For one, I'm…
