Why Is Accepted Rated PG-13?

This PG-13 teen movie is riddled with profanities, and a popular scatological term being used obsessively throughout (it also forms the school’s acronym, and is seen in print many more times). Other crude anatomical references and two sexual expletives (the second one is bleeped) are heard. Many moments of sexual innuendo along with women in bikinis and talk of sexual activity are included, as are scenes of alcohol use and verbal references to illicit drugs. An adult, who was a former teacher, admits he was fired for making sexual comments to female students. Violence includes a highly stereotyped obese young man who is hazed by a sorority (we don’t actually see the physical abuse, only the results), a school administrator’s car being blown up (supposedly by a young man who has learned to manipulate matter with his brain), and other accidental and slapstick antics.
