MPAA Rated PG for some rude humor and language

Sex & Nudity

  • Students take their shirts off in PE for the skins team. Meanwhile, Fregley (not on the skins team) lifts up his shirt to show off his "secret freckle" which can gross viewers out a bit.

Violence & Gore

  • In the Wizard of Oz play, the actors are seen throwing apples at each other.
  • Mild comedic violence.


  • One use of the word crap
  • We see the word s**t on a cafeteria, but some is blocked by a pillar.
  • A little bit of name calling, some of it is played for comedic effect and it also remains mild at its worst, so nothing to actually be worried about here.
  • Freaking is used once
  • Three uses of God's name in vain
  • God is used three times

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

Frightening & Intense Scenes


The Parents Guide items below may give away important plot points.

Sex & Nudity

  • During a Gym wrestling match, Greg Heffley says "She's a girl, where do I grab her?!", which may imply a sexual joke. This could catch parents off-guard.


  • In one scene, Rodrick uses the word "crappy".
  • Towards the end of the movie, someone says, "You're so freakin' dead."
  • Some mild themes of bullying; a group of teenagers are rude to Greg and Rowley in one scene they spray them with water and chase them and in another they demand Rowley to eat a moldy piece of cheese off the ground, which he does. Also a couple other characters may seem to be portrayed somewhat as bullys.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • The lights turn off as rodrick makes up a story in an attempt to scare kids about the "devil worshiper woods". As well as the scene where Greg and Rowley cross through the woods at night and are frightened by an approaching shadow, which happens to just be their classmate as they run away. This is all played for comedic effect but could possibly be a bit frightening to some young viewers. Other than this, none.
