Why Is Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues Rated PG-13?
Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues is rated PG-13 for crude and sexual content, drug use, language and comic violence.
Here is additional information on sex, violence and profanity in Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues...
Violence: (All violence is within a comedic context.) During a verbal dispute, a man punches another man. In another argument, a man attempts to punch a woman but misses—she responds by punching him in the face. A group of men and women, all representing competing news teams, meet in a large park and begin a hand-to-hand battle that soon involves other non-ammunition weapons; some minor injuries are seen and an obviously fake eyeball is seen stuck to the end of a hockey stick. Contemplating suicide, a man prepares a noose to hang from, but his attempt humorously fails. Many scenes include verbal confrontation.
Sexual Content: Frequent sexual references, discussion and innuendo are heard throughout. An unmarried man and woman begin engaging sexual activity—no explicit details are seen. Characters discuss masturbation, sexually transmitted diseases, unwanted pregnancies and other topics using a variety of crude and clinical sexual terms.
Language: A single sexual expletive is used. A variety of other profanities are heard throughout, along with multiple uses of terms of Christian deity as expletives. Derogatory remarks toward various individuals and groups are heard including gays, lesbians and followers of Haitian Vodou.
Alcohol / Drug Use: A man is about to use crack cocaine while on television, the film cuts to the next scene where he and others are being arrested. A later comment jokes about using this illegal substance. A man is seen drinking in a number of scenes, at one point appearing to be inebriated and it is implied he has a drinking problem. A character is seen with a cigarette.
