Between "Clueless" and "That Thing You Do!" they separately led two of the most charming and rewatchable all-ages comedies of the '90s. Cut to 20 some years later and they've been relegated to the thankless task of playing the dopey suburban parents in "Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul," a deeply unfunny family road trip movie that has gross-out jokes to rival the R-rated "Vacation" remake.This is technically the fourth "Wimpy Kid" picture, based on cartoonist Jeff Kinney's popular books about an awkward middle schooler, Greg.According to this movie, nearly everything about family life is a disgusting, dispiriting horror show from the dreary food to the painful company.It would be nice to think that Silverstone and Scott might be able to tow any film out of a ditch with their comedic talents.
