Diary of a Wimpy Kid 2: Rodrick Rules Reviews

Kevin Carr
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.

September 16, 2013

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.

Philip French
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.

Graham Young
Birmingham Mail

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

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.

David Edwards
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.

Christopher Tookey
Daily Mail [UK]

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.

Tim Evans
Sky Movies

An entertaining movie that's almost old-fashioned in its innate ability to charm.

David Aldridge
Radio Times

The pre-teen angst, sibling squabbles and broad comedy should guarantee that it goes down well with five- to ten-year-olds.

Basically a child-friendly Superbad.

Total Film

More of the same for a good-enough kids' film series. But Bostick's vim and vigour help, and the balance of message with entertainment is less clumsy than you'd fear.

This movie harkens back to the days of live-action Disney films that actually withstood the test of time because they were silly enough to entertain kids, but also intelligent enough to keep their attention.

Leigh Paatsch
Herald Sun (Australia)

The film is funny and lively enough (particularly when the visuals are switched to Kinney's famous stick-figure illustrations) to win over any newcomers to the fold.

The Age (Australia)

While the film is a tad mushier, there are still enough gross-out moments to please.
