Why Is Driven Rated PG-13?

Overall: C
If you’ve always wondered what it would be like to hang out at the tracks, this movie is full of stunning visuals of cars including amazing action from the driver’s point of view, and a moment where two competitors set aside differences to work together. It’s also full of racy girls and some greasy language, although its greatest downfall is a script that leaves you begging for the checkered flag.

Violence: B-
Car collisions during professional races show intricate slow motion details of cars breaking apart. One crash involves a car overturned in a small pond, with the driver still pinned inside. No explicit injuries shown. Two professional drivers chase each other at high speeds through city streets, putting other public drivers and pedestrians at high risk. A fine from the racing association is mentioned, but no police consequences are seen for their reckless actions.

Sexual Content: B-
Devoid of any major sexual scenes, the entire movie is laced with women wearing the tightest and tiniest tanks, halters, shorts, and other clothing. In addition, one major female character swings between two different males, however sex between her and either man is never seen or alluded to.

Language: C-
At least: One possible sexual expletive (muttered), 2 moderate profanities, 20 mild profanities, 7 terms of Deity used as expletives or profanities.

Alcohol / Drug Use: C
Social drinking. Champagne used as part of celebrations. A distraught character drinks in a bar. The high-speed car chase (detailed under violence) begins at a gala that shows many characters drinking.
