Just in time for Summer comes the second installment of the Diary Of A Wimpy Kids series, 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.
This was one of the only collections of books my son ever read cover to cover, I was so impressed with this series for keeping him engaged I was more then happy to enjoy this series on DVD with him.
Just back from summer vacation, Greg Heffley and his friend Rowley 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. And at home, Greg is still at war with his older brother, Rodrick, until their mom Susan 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 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.

My Take:
We enjoyed this move, as a family, just as much as the first one. This movie was a great mix of family friendly comedy, just as enjoyable for the adults as the children. What I also appreciated was the "moral" of sorts. My boys are in that love, hate relationship phase always teasing each other, always arguing, you know typical sibling rivalry.

Although Rodrick doesn't always make life easy for Greg, in the movie they are able to form a bond and overcome most of their difficulties because know manner what is thrown at them they are brothers forever! A great lesson for my boys to learn.
I love how the series touches on ( with a comical twist) real situations, young adults deal with, bullies, family, friends, school, teachers, etc
I would definitely recommend this movie as a must watch for family friendly fun and entertainment.
