    Rodrick Rules has a brighter comic edge than its predecessor - and a bit more spunk. show more

    Scott Bowles USA Today

    Leave it to a wimpy kid to show Hollywood how to make a family movie with live people in it. show more

    Carrie Rickey Philadelphia Inquirer

    Unlike the first film, which was broader and more episodic, this one has a narrative throughline. show more

    Kirk Honeycutt The Hollywood Reporter

    This time, tedium sets in early and never loosens its grip. The gags are obvious, predictable and dull. show more

    Seventh-graders are far cooler and more anarchic than depicted in this often-dopey movie, which is aimed at more of a fourth-grade sensibility. show more

    Roger Moore Orlando Sentinel

    It just takes a very long time to get going. Apparently seventh grade doesn't pack as much potential for amusing, scarred-for-life trauma as sixth grade. show more
