I thought the first one was better, but my kids liked this one much more then the first. I say B, my kids say A+
21 June 2011 | by See all my reviews

"You'll always be my brother, but you'll never be my friend." After the fighting between the two brothers gets out of control Greg (Gordon) and Rodrick (Bostick) are forced to spend the weekend together, just the two of them. After becoming friends again one incident rips them apart and the family worries it may never be fixed. After reading the first book and watching the first movie, both of which I liked, I had higher expectations for this one. My son loves these books and movies so it's a lot of fun to watch him laugh at the movie, almost more fun then the actual movie is. Being that this is a kids movie I will make this one short. Overall I thought the first one was better, but my kids liked this one a lot more. I give it a B, my kids give it an A+ Would I watch again? - I saw it in theaters, then watched it again on DVD. My kids have seen it like 5 times already.
