Watch Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Rodrick Rules
- 1 hr 36 min
Jeff Kinney wrote a Diary of A Wimpy kid and then that book spawned several sequels due to it's great success. It seemed only natural that the books would come to life in movie form at some point in time. After a Diary of a Wimpy kid experienced film success, the second book Diary of a Wimpy Kid : Rodrick Rules came quickly on it's heels the next year. Greg Heffley is the main star of the story and much of the plot revolves around his experiences in junior high and his crazy family life. The movie begins with his family going to the skating rink for a party where Greg runs into his friends from school. They recap their summer adventures until his brother Rodrick ends up tormenting him and his parents end up embarrassing him like they always seem to do. The main theme of the second installment to the Wimpy Kid franchise is that Rodrick is a pain in Greg's rear end. His torment is never ending and the brother's are always fighting with one another. Their mom is getting entirely fed up with their shenanigans and devises a system called Mom Bucks where they can earn money for spending time together but her plan doesn't work very well. The parents leave town and leave the boys alone together and Rodrick ends up having a party and locking poor Greg and his friend Rowley, who showed up to save him, in the basement. When the parents call to say they are coming back early the boys team up and Greg covers for his brother by saying that he had kids over for band practice. This helps the brothers to temporarily bond together.
