Diary of a Wimpy Kid 2: Rodrick Rules follows the escapades of wise-cracking pre-teen Greg Heffley as he begins seventh grade at middle school with his ‘un-cool’ best friend Rowley Jefferson. Having survived the Summer holidays at the hands of his chief tormentor and older brother Rodrick, events take an interesting turn when they must deal with their parents’ misguided attempts to make them bond.

Greg and Rodrick are bribed to spend time together with ‘mom bucks’ which they can trade in for real money, and Greg’s diary chronicles the trials and tribulations along the way. Forced to endure Rodrick’s reluctant attempts teach him to play along with his band Loaded Diper, attempting to cover up a wild party that Rodrick throws while their parents were away and surviving his brother’s romantic advice, can the pair ever reconcile their differences to become anything but sworn enemies?

Well what can I say my girls loved it, we heard bursts of laughter coming from their bedroom as they watched the DVD. I have three girls aged 15,14 and 10 and they all loved it. Now that’s something you know how hard it is to please teenagers.

My eldest Kennedy 15 said

” Rodrick rules was very funny, it was about the relationship between two brothers and how they bond by helping each other and taking one for the team.
It was always interesting and never got boring . It was very good because it related to the life of a child at a primary school and sibling rivalry. The musical score was fun and lively.

My ten year old Brodie said

“This DVD is awesome it blew my mind. It shows Greg’s mom trying to get Greg and Rodrick to be friends. This DVD almost made me wet my pants it was so funny, I love tha Greg fancies this girl called Holly and keeps trying to impress her. Its nice that they end up good friends. I really loved this film and will watch it again and again.”

So as you can see Wimpy Kid 2 was well loved in our home.

You can get your own copy from the 19th September , I highly recommend it as a great film for all ages.
