Goofs

When Greg's Gym class is playing soccer and Coach Malone shouts at them you can see the players running with the ball straight at them, parralell from the other goal. However Greg and his friends run across the field towards an unmarked Patty, who kicks it into the net. This would mean that the nets are not parallel to each other. See more »

OK... But not as good as the first one...
7 May 2012 | by See all my reviews

Quite well made with slightly more use of the cartoons I liked in the first one used to illustrate the story. These were woefully underused in the first film and, although still not used consistently enough, it was nice to see them still there.

I still think the character of Greg is a little too self-centred, for him it's all about being popular which never seems to work out the way he plans. This time his big brother is going to help him out… or is he? In the first film I felt the character of Rowley stole the show and this time around it seemed he took more of a back seat with Rodrick moving nearer to the limelight. This didn't work quite so well (for me) but I guess the production company must think they're doing something right because the third instalment is already in the can. Over all, not as good as the first film but there were still a one or two good points… I'm undecided about the third instalment, but we'll see next year when it airs on TV.

My score: 5.5/10

IMDb Score: 6.2/10 (based on 7,145 votes at the time of going to press).

MetaScore: 51: (Based on 23 critic reviews provided by Metacritic.com at the time of going to press).
