Jeff Kinney’s popular YA series hits the big screen again with Diary of a Wimpy Kid 2: Rodrick Rules.

Being the Middle Child

If you’re a middle child just like Greg Heffley, you know exactly how tough life can be. Greg’s little brother Manny gets away with everything, including breaking Greg’s stuff. And what’s his excuse? “I’m only three.” Yeah, three and evil! But even worse than Manny is Greg’s teenage brother, Rodrick. His main goal in life is to make Greg miserable. Oh, and become a professional musician with his band, Loded Diper. (First of all, ew! Second, learn to spell.)

Throwing a Party

Greg’s mom writes a parenting column in the local newspaper. And in order to practice what she preaches, she tries to encourage Greg and Rodrick to spend quality time together. When she and Greg’s dad take Manny away for the weekend, Rodrick decides to throw a party. He convinces Greg that it’s “their party.” But when the guests arrive, he locks Greg in the basement. Fortunately, Greg blackmails Rodrick into letting him join the party.

Learning to Get Along

After the party, Rodrick and Greg begin to get along. Rodrick even shows Greg the ropes on how to live a lazy life, and offers some advice on how to get his crush, Holly Hills, to notice him. But some of Rodrick’s tips backfire, eventually hurting their relationship more than ever. Can brothers ever be friends?

The Bottom Line

Diary of a Wimpy Kid 2: Rodrick Rules is the second book-turned-film in Jeff Kinney’s hilarious YA series. Don’t worry if you haven’t seen the first film. This movie will get you all caught up on the ups and downs of Greg Heffley’s life. We definitely recommend this film!
