Diary of a Wimpy Kid 2: Rodrick Rules Reviews

7M Pictures

Even though this new movie is under another director, it feels very much like the first film. The characters are great, being both relateable and extreme.

McClatchy-Tribune News Service

Apparently seventh grade doesn't pack as much potential for amusing, scarred-for-life trauma as sixth grade.

The pre-teen cast seems rudderless, without an interested hand guiding them into worthwhile comedic performances.

Fan The Fire

I'm not asking for Citizen Kane here, but just a wisp of expansion to the characters, an actual narrative that the film can walk down, or just some sort of ambition to the whole project would not have gone amiss.

Maintains the good-natured, playful and zany spirit that made that first movie one of the better non-fantasy-related kid films out there.

Henry Fitzherbert
Daily Express

A colourful, good-hearted romp with some memorable set-pieces and decent lines, crisply directed by David Bowers.

Guardian

It's an episodic film, rather less interesting than its British director David Bowers's earlier work as an animator in Britain and America.

Commercial Appeal (Memphis, TN)

Essentially a feature-length sitcom episode, but it's often laugh-out-loud funny, and it respects its young audience.

A U-certificate adventure that all of the family can enjoy together, with some cute little bits of animation thrown in for good measure.

For a family entertainment this isn't at all bad.

It is a bit of a stretch at an hour and forty, but nonetheless this is great fun and a strong opener for the summer's family movie season.

There are momentary shafts of something like wit within this slightly bland mix...

Daily Mirror [UK]

I am giving this film four out of five stars because they made some changes to the storyline, but it is still awesome.

More entertaining than its lacklustre predecessor but has the feel of a straight-to-DVD film.

Movie Talk

Greg's screen adventures are too sketchy (hampered by their diary-format origins) and the acting too patchy (hands-up Steve Zahn's cartoony dad) for the film to be any more than a passable half-term diversion.

Not every sequel is a cynical rip-off of innocent moviegoers, and here's the welcome proof.

Funnier and faster than its charming predecessor.

If you think that people falling over is hilarious - and let's face it, most kids do - then you'll love this film.

Daily Telegraph

A release aimed at the half-term crowd, but accompanying adults will find plenty to enjoy, too.

May 26, 2011

Feels more heartfelt, funnier, and a little less gross than the first film last year.
