Why Is 27 Dresses Rated PG-13?

Making sure the wedding goes off without a hitch is what Jane does best, even going so far as helping the bride in the bathroom. But while Jane is making sure everything’s okay, other wedding guests are getting drunk or looking for someone to go home with. Repeated sexual discussions, references to sexual activity, passionate kissing in a car and a brief lesbian comment are included in the script. Frequent profanities and a partially heard sexual expletive are also used along with a cheeky comparison to Jesus. A couple of slaps and a vengeful presentation are depicted.
