Why Is Cars 2 Rated G?

Violence: The animated cars in this film are subjected to various violent scenarios. A car is held and tortured with a ray gun that will cause his fuel to explode unless he reveals secret information—he is eventually killed. (This weapon is used on other vehicles as well.) Criminals reveal a car that has been crushed into a small cube. A car falls from an oil platform into the ocean and smashes into pieces. In other scenes cars are captured and placed in danger. Characters are exposed to frequent peril, crashes and threatened explosions.

Sexual Content: A character makes a veiled reference to being embarrassed after watching a movie in his hotel room. Some romantic references are made between male and female cars.

Language: No profanities were noted.

Drugs/Alcohol: Cars are seen at parties, pubs and other social settings consuming what looks like alcoholic beverages.

Other: After leaking oil at a party, Mator heads to a Japanese restroom in a panic. There he encounters an automated toilet with comical references to scatological issues. After consuming spicy food he belches gas from his tailpipe.
