* FollowTheLeader: There's no denying that the amount of book series that starting popping up after ''Wimpy Kid'' came out and blew up based on middle schoolers' journal entries combining words and drawings were definitely not a coincidence. Especially with ''Diary of a _____'' as their title.

* BoxOfficeBomb: ''Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul'': Budget, $22 million. Box office, $20,541,739 (domestic), $33,561,079 (worldwide). The negative backlash over this adaptation [[TheyChangedItNowItSucks replacing all of the cast from the previous three films]] (spawning the [[MemeticMutation #NotMyRodrick meme]]), combined with the hiatus between the movies (as even creator Jeff Kinney stated there wouldn't be more films starring said cast due to the child actors growing older), critics panning it far more severely than the original trilogy and competition from ''Film/GuardiansOfTheGalaxyVol2'', has dealt quite the damage to this film's overall performance.
