    Frank Heffley is a character in the book series Diary of a Wimpy Kid. He is the serious, overactive, and occasionally psychotic father of Rodrick, Greg, and Manny Heffley. He is the husband of Susan Heffley and the elder brother of Joe Heffley and Gary Heffley. As Greg Heffley's father, he appears as a major character throughout the Diary of a Wimpy Kid series, though he plays the main antagonist in The Last Straw and the film adaptation of Dog Days and is the overarching antagonist of the online book.

    In the first three Diary of a Wimpy Kid movies, Frank is played by Steve Zahn, with that role being filled in by Tom Everett Scott in the film adaptation for The Long Haul. In the animated movie for Disney+, he is voiced by Chris Diamantopoulos.

    Why He's an Idiotic Dad

    1. While not as bad as his wife, Frank also has his own flaws, as he's an idiotic dad.
    2. Much like Susan, he also lets Manny gets away with his actions.
    3. Tom Everett Scott does a very bad job portraying him in The Long Haul movie.
    4. Much like Peter Griffin, Stan Smith, seasons 6-9a Patrick Star, and Elvis Cridlington since season 6, he does very idiotic stuff such as taking away Greg's video games and changing the "rock" music that was on to classical.
    5. In "The Last Straw", he wouldn't let Greg put a winter jacket on when he was sitting on the bench.
    6. In the book version of "Dog Days", he made Sweetie uncomfortable. In the movie version he gets Greg go to Spag Union which is a worse version of military school all because Greg wanted to play video games all summer which he ruins Greg's summer by dismantling the TV.

    Redeeming Qualities

    1. Steve Zahn (live-action, Diary of a Wimpy Kid-Dog Days) and Chris Diamantopulos (animated films) did good jobs voicing him.
      • Steve Zahn clearly had a blast in the movies, and you can tell he had fun acting as a funny dad.
    2. There are times where he is likable.
    3. At least Frank Heffley admittedly cares about his children.
