Is the SQL Server 2008 Web Edition R2? if not it is not possible to restore an R2 backup to a none R2 SQL Server.

I have not yet tried the Web Edition of SQL 2008, but I do not believe there was a compatibility issue with restoring a database created in standard edition. Might be wrong, so please advise what specific error you are getting in the restore process.

You can also try copying the database objects over:

Good catch, jacko72. The limitation is in version of SQL and not edition. You can run SQL 2005 or SQL 2008 databases on SQL 2008 R2, but you could run a SQL 2008 R2 database on SQL 2005 as an example.

You can't.  Consider moving the schema and data with something like Red-Gate's tools:
SQL Compare
SQL Data Compare.

I suspect you are missing a "not" here.
