Is Spider-Man No Way Home Ok For Kids? Parent Movie Guide and Review
There is something about a superhero movie that kids just love.
And by kids: we mean kids 3 to 99 because let’s be real: the adults are just as big of fans as the children!
And Spidey- well, he’s kinda a big deal and has been since 1962.
He’s also one of the more kid-friendly superheroes, so we know parents want to make sure No Way Home is safe for kids.
And because this is the next big installment in the Marvel Movies in order, your kids are probably asking if they can see the movie.
In this parent movie guide and review, we’ll cover the language, violence, sex, and nudity levels in the movie to help you decide if No Way Home is kid-friendly and safe for your kids to watch.
We’ll also talk about the PG-13 rating and how that may affect your decision on what ages Spider-Man No Way Home is appropriate for.
As already announced via the posters and trailers (ie, this is NOT a spoiler!) some of the previous Spider-Man villains are making an appearance.
Green Goblin, Doc Ock, Electro, Sandman, and Lizard return and are all played by their original actors.

Is No Way Home Ok For Kids? Language In This Spider-Man Film
This Spider-Man movie isn’t quite as kid-friendly when it comes to language as we’d like.
While there isn’t any FULL use of the F-bomb (Parker cuts himself off after the F very early in the movie), there are quite a few mid-level swears peppered throughout.
We heard screw it, sucks, @ss, h@ll, d@mn, sh!t, and bad @ss. Mostly these words came from the villains.
Characters also say OMG-d and there was at least one use of G-d D@amn in the movie.
Violence: Is No Way Home Safe For Kids?
This is a BIG superhero movie with five- yes, FIVE!- bad guys.
So the fight scenes are pretty epic and wild.
There are some of the usual things you can expect, especially if you are familiar with the previous Spider-Man movies or had a Spider-Man movie marathon before you watched this one.
Bombs, electricity, cars were thrown around, and bystanders are in peril in some scenes.
Overall, it’s fairly on par with most Marvel movies.
Death Trigger Alert In Spider-Man No Way Home
The main thing to note to decide if Spider-Man No Way Home is safe for kids: there is a death of a major character. The scene takes a fair amount of time to play out which may prolong any triggering feelings could have.
It’s handled in a kid-friendly way (there’s a little blood and a quiet passing) but it’s still going to have a major impact on a child, especially one who may have lost someone in their family recently.
There is a funeral scene as well.
Spider-Man No Way Home Parent Guide: Romance, Sex and Nudity
There is some skin shown in Spider-Man No Way Home, but it’s also handled in a fairly respectful manner.
It’s not shown in a lustful way in either instance.
One time Spider-Man is seen shirtless and in boxer brief style underwear.
Another time one of the villains is shown naked from the back- but the scene stops before you see anything below the waist. He does mention, however, that he is naked.
Peter and MJ do share a passionate kiss.
What Does PG-13 Means For No Way Home?
Spider-Man No Way Home is rated PG-13 for language, action, violence, and brief suggestive comments.
We’ll also note that this Spider-Man is fairly emotional and deep at moments. Tears certainly did fall for us!
What Ages Are Appropriate for Spider-Man No Way Home?
As always, you know your kids best!
If they have seen the Spider-Man movies or the Marvel movies before, they are likely going to be able to handle this movie just fine.
If you have concerns about language that’s the only real transgression we see in this movie. These just seemed to be more usage than you normally get from a Spider-Man movie.
We think kids 8 and up who have seen previous movies in the genre could handle watching this one.
But the movie is over 2 1/2 hours long, so be sure to check when you can pee during Spider-Man No Way Home.
