Diary of a Wimpy Kid 2: Rodrick Rules
19 April 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The first Diary of a Wimpy Kid was charming, witty, and kind of funny. This movie is the same, but has more to offer. We see Rodrick a lot more, and he's a very interesting character.

The whole movie kind of studies the relationship between Greg and Rodrick. Rodrick teaches Greg how to be lazy, get other people to do stuff for him. You know, teen stuff.

The movie is funnier than the first one, the characters are movie more dimensional then the first. The parents aren't as annoying. It's good.

I mean, I had a feeling I was gonna like this one better, mostly because I liked the second book better than the first one. I don't know why, not that much difference.

If you liked the first one, you will most likely love this one. I mean, even people that hated the first one said this one was better.
