Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Roderick Rules

I don't usually get into kids movies, but since my kids have been talking about Roderick Rules for a while, I recently decided to rent it. Actually it was more of a rent to own transaction. I'm on a six month payment plan. Just kidding, I just thought it sounded strange that a famous movie critic like myself would have to rent a movie. I will try to focus and get back on topic now.

Roderick Rules is a sequel to Diary of a Wimpy Kid which is a popular short book series. This movie is about Greg and his mean older brother Roderick and their struggles as they try to get along with each other. All of the characters from the original movie returned for this installment so it is pretty much a clean continuation of the first movie. I think I may have actually enjoyed this movie a little more than the first one.

I had a good time watching Diary of a Wimpy Kid 2 with my kids and despite its shortcomings, I still give it 6.6 stars. It was pretty funny and I actually had some pretty good laughs during it.

I thought the first one was cute- I'll have to rent this one.

Yeah, for what it is, I thought it was pretty darned good. My boys LOVED it. Definitely an improvement on the first. There were moments I found myself reallyi laughing out loud. said...

I liked the first movie a lot better. This one seemed to never end. I also read all the books, and, as always: the books are TONS better than the movies.

Books are usually better than movies. At least that was the case with Dumb and Dumber. That book was a masterpiece.
