Why Is The Da Vinci Code Rated PG-13?

This movie approaches the top end of the PG-13 rating with its graphic depictions of a naked corpse covered in cryptic signs drawn in blood, a nude man shown mutilating himself in an act of sacrifice and emulation of Christ’s crucifixion, and many other moments of conflict involving people being shot (see on screen) or beaten. More concerns for parents include an unexpected and violently portrayed car crash, a few moderate and mild profanities and a conversation using male and female anatomical terms. A character drinks alcohol from a hidden flask, and is later poisoned. Finally, traditional Christian religious doctrine is altered, and leaders of the Roman Catholic Church are depicted in sinister fashion with murderous intent.
