It’s been about a year since the first Diary Of A Wimpy Kid was released, and Fox isn’t letting up on divulging the wimpiness of this kid. The trailer opens with jokes about pooping your pants in church. Great. Religious extremists are going to have a field day with this one. Looks like we’ve got another Passion Of The Christ on our hands.
In Diary Of A Wimpy Kid 2: Rodrick Rules, the little geek is tormented by a young Jimmy Fallon clone named Rodrick. And man, that Rodrick DOES rule. With his tussled hair, one-handed folding technique, extreme driving, and you know he’s hiding pot somewhere in that wimpy household. When Steve Zahn finds it, Rodrick will play it off. “Just holding it for a friend, Dad. Now can I get back to practicing my fingering?” For the guitar, of course, you guys.
