Why Is (500) Days of Summer Rated PG-13?

A man’s romantic obsession with a woman he meets at work leads to frequent sexual rendezvouses, however we do not see any detailed sexual activity. Discussions with friends are somewhat more verbally explicit. Language consists of one sexual expletive, several scatological and mild profanities along with a crude term for female anatomy. A male anatomical term is repeatedly shouted out a in a park where children are present. Sexual orientation issues are discussed, and a woman lists her past hetero and homosexual relationships. Violence is limited to two men exchanging a single punch each in a bar, and a man slapping another man within a comedic context. Alcohol use is frequently portrayed in social settings. In several scenes characters drink heavily prior to and after engaging in stressful situations.
