Greg Heffley, the kid who made “wimpy” cool, is back in this sidesplitting sequel based on the second installment of the best-selling book series! Having rid himself of the Cheese Touch , Greg enters the next grade with his confidence and friendships intact, and an eye on the new girl in town, Holly Hills . But at home, Greg is still at war with his older brother, Rodrick, so their parents have handed down the toughest “punishment” imaginable – forcing the boys to spend quality time with each other.

Cast & Crew
The Diary of a Wimpy Kid series might more aptly be titled Diary of a Wimpy Family.. The film sequel is more engaging than the original was because it spends more time at home.
The physical comedy will have the typical 10-year-old and some grown-ups cackling with glee.
None of it amounts to belly-aching laughs, but Rodrick clicks in much the way A Christmas Story became a cult hit, by viewing the world through the eyes of an ordinary kid.
Sequels, like younger brothers, often struggle to form their own identity. Happily, this hotly awaited follow-up to last year's hit adaptation of Jeff Kinney's wildly popular Wimpy Kid book series establishes its own charming reason for being.
Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Rodrick Rules is full of lively slapstick.
Director David Bowers keeps things peppy and brightly lighted, but the movie's swiftest pleasures come from moment-seizing cast members...
The smart dialogue and kid's-eye-view of the torments of school life remain as satisfyingly amusing as the first outing, but this Wimpy Kid is slightly off-kilter.
