Not bad

One aspect that's kinda nice about these movies is that they're just as episodic as the books, even if Greg isn't as likable as he should be. "Rodrick Rules" isn't as fun as "Dog Days" (I watched these out of order) but it's light, peppy, and there's a good chemistry between Greg and Rodrick; precisely what's needed for this movie to work.

I'm still partial to the books (in a big way), but the movies are a good way to kill an afternoon; this one included.

6/10

Just as good as the first movie.

It's back to school and Greg falls in love

Starring Zachary Gordon and Devon Bostick

Screenplay by Gabe Sachs and Jeff Judah

Based on the book by Jeff Kinney

Directed by David Bowers

This is just as good as the first film. Once again it's aimed at a much younger audience than me but the kid in me really enjoyed it.

It's full of laughs and it's another movie that makes you feel warm and fuzzy inside. This time the focus is on Greg's laborious relationship with his older brother and he also falls in love with the new girl in town. There's a different director for this sequel but it has the same feel and there's not much difference in how the movies come across. It's just as funny and silly and enjoyable.

8/10 I must look out for the third installment.

Middle School is Awkward, as is This Film

This film definitely had some improvements on the first one. I really liked how Rodrick was further developed, as I found him to be one of the most likable characters from the original. His personality is quirky and outlandish, but believable.

While I understand Greg's role as a middle schooler, which is full of awkward drama, his character becomes unlikable as he continually whines and shows himself to be a bad friend to his peers.

The parents are completely stereotyped as the stupid dad and the mom who refuses to deal with reality until an extreme circumstances rise. This really makes them poor role models for the boys, who ultimately grow as characters from learning how to appreciate each other.

As a middle school teacher, I was disappointed with the representation of the teacher in the film. While I do understand that some teachers do judge younger siblings based on their older siblings, it is unfair to assume this is the norm.

I do think the film does appropriately emphasize the awkwardness of middle school, though it is overly dramatized.

I rate this film 4/10
