DIARY OF A WIMPY KID: THE LONG HAUL is a family comedy in which a family takes a road trip to attend their grandmother's ninetieth birthday party, but the middle child attempts to divert the journey in order to get to a gaming convention.

Language

Very mild bad language includes uses of 'jerk', 'dork' and 'butt'.

Theme

There are moments of rude humour, including a scene in which a boy hides in a bathroom while a man uses the toilet in noisy fashion. In another scene, a pig passes wind in a car and the occupants react with comic disgust.

Precuts information

During post-production, the distributor sought and was given advice on how to secure the desired classification. Following this advice, certain changes were made prior to submission

Note: The following text may contain spoilers

This film was originally seen for advice. The company was advised that it was likely to be classified 12A but that their preferred U classification could be achieved by removing a single use of discriminatory language ('spaz'). When the film was submitted for formal classification that word had been replaced with a less offensive term ('dork') and the film was classified U.
