03.25.11 by reelz
Critics are closely divided on Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Rodrick Rules. It's either slightly better or slightly worse than last year's original.
"Not much happens, but the young cast charms."
— Robert Abele, Los Angeles Times
"...chugs along inoffensively enough."
— Ella Taylor, LA Weekly
"...blends 'Brady Bunch'-style morality with other standard-issue sitcom tropes, then redeems itself via memorable supporting characters."
— Peter Debruge, Variety
"...ever-so-slightly more palatable (than the original), if only for being less of a total spazz."
— Scott Tobias, Onion AV Club
"...a dull, square follow-up..."
— Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly
"A year after the original film surprised adults by being a kids' movie with a degree of wit, a sequel arrives, Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Rodrick Rules, that is positively wimpy."
— Kirk Honeycutt, Hollywood Reporter
