Diary of a Wimpy Kid: RODRICK RULES DVD


Kick off the First Day of Summer and win a DVD copy of DIARY OF a WIMPY KID: RODRICK RULES •  Available on Blu-ray and DVD on June 21st

Greg Heffley is about to discover that there is something worse than middle school – his own family! Based on the 2011 Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice™ Award for Best Book Series, the original film cast returns in DIARY OF A WIMPY KID: RODRICK RULES, available on Blu-ray and DVD on June 21st. This flick takes sibling rivalry to entirely new levels as big brother and little brother wrestle through growing pains.

Just back from summer vacation, Greg Heffley (Zachary Gordon, National Treasure: Book of Secrets) and his friend Rowley (Robert Capron, The Sorcerer’s Apprentice) enter the next grade as undersized weaklings in their school. A bully favorite, Greg tries not to get noticed by anyone except the pretty new girl, Holly Hills (Peyton List, 27 Dresses). And at home, Greg is still at war with his older brother, Rodrick (Devon Bostick, “Degrassi”), until their mom Susan (Rachael Harris, The Hangover) instigates a ‘Mom Bucks’ program so Greg and Rodrick can earn play money by doing chores and—gasp!—being nice to each other. Calamity ensues when their parents return from vacation and dad Frank (Steve Zahn, A Perfect Getaway) finds evidence that Rodrick secretly threw a houseparty with his band, Löded Diper. As they struggle with school and compete for ‘Mom Bucks,’ the brothers discover that avoiding trouble is easier if they unite—and their once-twisted partnership grows into a hilariously playful and sometimes mischievous friendship.

DIARY OF A WIMPY KID: RODRICK RULES will be available on single-disc DVD, 2-disc DVD, and 3-disc Blu-ray/DVD/Digital Copy and includes the crazy adventures Greg and his friends has over the summer with hilarious all-new “My Summer Vacation” shorts not seen in theaters. It is available in the U.S. and Canada.

My Take:
We received a promotional copy of this movie for our review. We watched this movie the other night and my kids (5 & 11) loved it.  They laughed through out the entire movie.  I will agree there were several funny parts, but I just can't decide if it was better than the first movie or not. I actually found it a little strange how the movie started out with the kids all coming together at a skating rink for the "first" time since school was out. Really? They didn't see each other the entire summer? I found that a little off, but other than that it started out great, right into the fun and pranks.  The overall storyline was great just like the first movie.  I can see there being another in this series.  They just have so many great things they can do with the characters and plot lines. I'm thinking in the next movie Rodrick really needs a girl interest/girlfriend of his own so Greg and his friends can cause him some trouble in return for all he has done. Hey, just a thought. : ) (On a side note my husband caught my daughter trying to stick her gum behind her ear last night just like one of the kids in the movie. Great timing for a life lesson to not do what you see in movies.)
