Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Rodrick Rules (PG)


This second installment in the Wimpy Kid franchise finds Greg Heffley (Zachary Gordon) sparring with his older brother Rodrick (Devon Bostick). The siblings’ parents (Steve Zahn and Rachael Harris) offer “mom-bucks” for every trouble-free hour the boys spend together. Childhood ambition is the driving force in a story about how the brothers mutually discover how to help one another. Rodrick Rules might not be high art, but it is a perfectly sound kid’s movie.
