Why is Alpha and Omega rated PG?
Official MPAA Rating: Alpha and Omega is rated PG for for rude humor and some mild action.
Violence: When wolves attempt to hunt a herd of caribou, one wolf is kicked and a caribou appears seriously injured. Wolf packs exchange verbal threats and a skirmish breaks out. Some moments of mild peril are created after a pair of wolves are removed from their home and attempt to return. Conservation officers shoot animals with tranquilizer darts.
Sexual Content: The aspect of mating and repopulation is vaguely discussed. Female wolves are sometimes made to appear sensual, while males exhibit sexual interests using common teenaged terms (i.e. “she’s hot!”). The activity of howling at the moon has implied overtones of being akin to engaging in sexual activity (one wolf asks another, “Was it good for you?”).
Language: Some mild rude terms, like “butt” are heard.
Drug and Alcohol Use: After being shot by tranquilizer darts, two wolves momentarily act as if they are intoxicated before passing out.
