Format: DVD
Greg (Zachary Gordon) has moved on to the seventh grade. He hangs out with his wimpy friends. The new girl in school is Holly Hills(Peyton List). She has long blond hair and has captured everyone's attention. Greg's friend Rowley (Robert Capron) says, "She's as pretty as my mom," in an awkward Freudian moment. Greg's parents are the stereotypical embarrassing parents. Greg and his older brother Roderick bond in this film as they share a secret. Roderick (Devon Bostick) who is part of a garage rock band, "Loded Diper"[sic] gives his brother advice on how to get Holly's attention. And there is a talent contest in town...Rachel Harris plays the mom. She is made to look like Tina Fey in a non-threatening way. She like movies were the man chooses the maid over the super model.

The movie contains pranks. The boys misbehave in ways we wish our kids would only misbehave. Good movie for family night entertainment as it was amusing and palatable for adults.

My review is short and sweet. My 8 year old grandson was thrilled with this dvd having already read many of the Wimpy Kid books. Knowing him, he will be watching this over and over again. So to all grandmas out there a great gift to your grandchildren. Finally the mere fact that my grandson did not move from the tv screen for the entire film is recommendation enough.

I got this DVD for my daughter who's aged 11. Although I would say that she's probably the right age to fully appreciate the film, my wife and I also thoroughly enjoyed it and have already watched it twice. Some really funny moments (the bit in the church!) and Rodrick's band Loded Diper always raises a laugh. A great film for all the family and you don't need to have seen the first one either (cos I haven't!)

This series of films has really sneaked up on me from nowhere and grabbed my attention.

Having never read the source material, or having any intention of watching the movie, I came across the first one, and then my daughter wanted me to watch this.

And I must say, it's a refreshing change to see a movie that can be classed as a family movie for once, that doesn't include smutty innuendo, coarse language, and features one of the truest teenage parties I have ever scene (no alcohol, no smoking, just fun).

The films narrative centres around the bonding of the two brothers and their struggles to tolerate each other. It's all done very well, and the cast are great, especially Zahn, and the guy who plays Rodrick.

It's a great movie for all the family, and I'm looking forward to seeing the next installment.

Having seen the 'Diary of a Wimpy Kid' and found it funny but boring in places I was ambivalent about seeing this sequel but I was pleasantly surprised and was actually crying with laughter at times. There are some very slapstick scenes but I appreciate that they are needed to appeal to younger children, as some of the subtle humour would be lost on them. I still think that Devon Bostick, who plays Greg's brother Rodrick, is the star of these films and that the rest pass muster. Greg's mother's attempt to encourage Greg and Rodrick to 'bond' mostly has the reverse effect, unsurprisingly. Greg falls for a new girl in his class and is continually humiliated in front of her. Rodrick is absorbed with his band, the revoltingly titled 'Löded Diper' and surprise, a talent show looms. I won't spoil the rest...

I streamed this the other night on a rental as I was fed up of horror flicks and wanted something light hearted. I really enjoyed it I am glad that I found it and so glad I watched it! It really made me laugh in parts, also glad i'm an only child too ha!
I haven't seen the first one as I put it on as a random thing. I'm 19 and I really liked it so I think any age group can!
It's nice and more like what movies used to be like, no cussing no innuendo just a good flick that you can give you a good laugh every now again!
If you enjoyed this movie be sure to check out the pacifier too as its a lot like this!
Hope this helps!
OMG approved !

We were fans of the first Wimpy Kid film - but this one is better. Fun for all the family, no crude-ness, crass-ness or "I love you mom" type sentimentality . Great performances and plenty of laughs and slap-stick. Hints of Ferris Bueller and old-school Disney comedies from the 70s. Stand out performances are Devon Bostick (phwoar!) who plays Roderick and our fave, the-happy-go-lucky Rowley who is just adorable. Actually, this whole film is adorable in its cheeky way. Hope there's a 3rd one.
