Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this big-screen adaptation of Megan McDonald's popular kids' books follows elementary schooler Judy Moody as she experiences a summer of fun that's fine for younger audiences, especially those familiar with the stories. The humor does veer toward the potty variety -- expect a couple of scatological words like "crap" and the sight of Judy covered in blue vomit and a toad peeing on her friend -- but otherwise there's not much that parents are likely to find objectionable. And Judy learns a valuable lesson: that having a meaningful summer isn't about ticking off "thrilling" activities on a chart but rather enjoying your family and each day's adventures.

Sexual Content

Aunt Opal wears some pretty short shorts and has mild cleavage in one outfit.


Some slapstick comedy -- like kids falling and tripping and cars hitting things -- but no one is hurt. Kids cross a creek unsupervised on a tight rope. In scenes featuring wild driving, it doesn't look as though anyone is wearing a seat belt. One scene features three kids on the same bike, with only one wearing a helmet.


Infrequent use of words like "dumb," "stupid," and "oh my God," as well as scatological words including "poo," "crap," and "pee."

Social Behavior

Judy's summer experience offers some positive messages about the importance of not trying to force yourself to do exciting things but instead simply enjoying the moment and finding what's amusing in your everyday life. When Judy and her family come together for the Bigfoot escapade, she realizes that she really can have a fab summer even without her chart and her friends.


A few noticeable product placements -- like a Dyson vacuum, the Apple MacBook computer, Microsoft's Bing search engine, the Toyota Prius, and the website GiantHello.
