Why Is American Dreamz Rated PG-13?
Usual content concerns are relatively minor in this PG-13 film. A sexual expletive and a sound-alike are heard, as well as a few other minor and moderate profanities. On screen violence is mainly contained to an opening sequence depicting Arab terrorists training in an Al-Queda like camp. An Arab character is preparing to kill himself and the US President with a suicide bomb. Deaths are implied from an off-screen explosion. No overt sexual content is seen, however it is concluded that an unmarried couple has engaged in sexual activities. Some derogatory remarks are made about a homosexual character. Other ethnic and religious groups are made fun of. Political leaders are portrayed as buffoons. One couple discusses taking “happy pills” and occasionally characters are seen drinking alcohol.
