MPAA Rated PG for some rude humor and language

Sex & Nudity

  • Scenes of shirtless males, and scantily clad females at a beach. In a brief night scene, Phil is wearing boxers and a t-shirt, but you can barely see him from the waist down.

Violence & Gore

  • some chase scenes and slapstick comedy. Quite graphic for a PG rated film.


  • Two misuses of God's name. Mild profanities including, "heck", and "suck". Unfinished phrases that typically end in profanities, such as "What the...". And a modified phrase in the form of, "Payback is a bee".
  • Two mild references, "licking butt", and a "steaming pile".

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

  • At a party, toilet drinking is used as a canine substitute for alcoholic consumption.
  • A strong graphic reference to "shrooms", being used by dogs, and the after-effects.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • Several dog chase scenes. Some of the nighttime scenes are pretty intense, for young children.
  • bosco wants to fight many times in the movie because marmaduke is flirting with his girlfriend and hes a jerk


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

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • The "Chupadogra" may appear frightening to small children. There is a scene where the "Chupadogra" allows himself to be captured by the dogcatcher, over Marmaduke. The scene is also somewhat frightening to younger audiences.
  • Near the end of the film there are a few car crashes, a sinkhole opens, and there are a couple life or death situations. Everyone makes it out okay, however.
