Why Is Balls of Fury Rated PG-13?


Relying on sexual comments and ridiculous antics to generate humor, Balls of Fury presents various content concerns. Sexual innuendo is frequent, with comments about male and female anatomy, often using rude terminology. A character puts chopsticks down a man’s pants and up another man’s nostrils, then resumes using them to eat his food. Comments are made about masturbating. Men are forced to accept the company of a male courtesan for the night; the next morning a blind man makes statements implying he thought he was with a woman. Characters are forced to conceal tracking transmitters in body cavities (they talk about their discomfort and walk strangely). A couple of women wear revealing tops. Violence played for comedy includes a man getting kicked in the crotch various times, a man getting shocked by an electric vest, and Martial Arts style fighting resulting in injuries (with added sound effects). Gunplay and killing with poisonous darts are depicted. Principal characters smoke cigarettes and drink socially. Derogatory remarks are made toward Chinese and Caucasian people, as well as the handicapped.
