Why Is The Astronaut Farmer Rated PG?

Billy Bob Thornton doesn’t appear in many films you can take the kids to, but even though this one is rated PG, it may still contain concerning content. Parents can expect to find mild profanities, scatological expletives and one use of a crude term for sex. A discussion between two female characters about the size of a man’s rocket is a veiled double entendre. Domestic strife and tension results in an argument between a married couple resulting in a dish being hurled at one person and more being thrown on the floor; however, apologies are offered shortly thereafter. Other violence includes a man threatening people and a brick being thrown through a bank window. An accident involving a vehicle leaves a man in hospital with cuts on his face and broken bones. A couple of male characters drink beer. A father and his three children ride in a pickup truck without seatbelts.
