Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that if this is your tween's first introduction to YouTube sensation Fred Figglehorn, they may be inclined to check out the multiple online shorts that started the frenzy in the first place, as well as Fred's website for additional videos. If it's your introduction to the hyperactive, over-reactive character, don't be surprised if you're inclined to run from sheer irritation. That said, there is a thin silver lining in the fact that, compared to the original movie, this sequel is lighter on some of the content that most offended parents, and it does try to push some good social messages related to bullying and judging people as well as fixing your mistakes. The only thing the movie doesn't tone down is Fred's use of his own personal curse words, which include "Oh my gammit!" and "h - e - double hockey sticks," so be sure your tweens know your family's rules about swearing stand-ins like these.

Sexual Content

Some age-appropriate flirting between middle-schoolers, and Fred refers to himself as "hot" at one point. Fred's mom flirts shamelessly with one of his teachers and wears some trampy outfits to attract his attention, though there's no physical contact or outright mention of sex.


Lots of slapstick mishaps (falling off a skateboard, running into doors, tumbling down stairs, etc.) and some roughing up (kicking, punching, body slamming) in a WWE-inspired scene. Fake blood gushes from a fake stab wound, and various cuts of meat are implied briefly to be human.


Fred's catchphrases are meant to closely resemble cursing without actually committing the act. "oh my gammit" and "What the h - e - double hockey sticks?" are his favorites, and you'll hear them a lot. Other marginal words include "butt," "shut up," and "stupid."

Social Behavior

The story follows the progression of a misunderstanding that leads to harsh judgment about a person's character. Fred uses the Internet to make a case about his teacher's supposed identity, but a technical mishap keeps the truth from being revealed, leading to more misunderstanding. On the upside, there are strong messages about friendship and respecting differences between people, as well as a positive example of correcting a mistake that's caused someone else harm.


Brief episodes of product placement or brand mention include Sunny D, Coke, Apple computers, and WWE. One scene shows a website called "BlueTube" that's meant to replicate YouTube. Fred's face and name grace a line of clothing and accessories marketed toward kids and tweens.
