Why Is Eat Pray Love Rated PG-13?


Violence: A car strikes a woman while she is riding a bicycle. Her injuries are minor, and we see a close-up of the bleeding wound on her leg.

Sexual Content: The theme of this film is centered on a woman who leaves her husband to pursue her own desires, which include a sexual affair (the clothed couple are seen kissing and in bed together) while she is still married and a second relationship with another man (again kissing is shown but no other details) after her divorce. A naked man offering an invitation for a swim (and a love affair) is seen from the rear, as well as in a front shot from the waist up. A couple is seen kissing—he has his hand on her abdomen under her shirt. Women are seen trying to zip up tight pants in a clothing store’s dressing room. Sexual relationships, or the lack thereof, are briefly discussed, along with some mild innuendos.

Language: A single sexual expletive, a crude finger gesture (from a child) and two crude terms for sex. Mild sexual innuendo. Approximately a half-dozen scatological expletives, some mild profanities, and at least 10 terms of deity.

Alcohol/Drug Use: Frequent social drinking, sometimes to the point of intoxication. A man jokes about drugs being inside an unusual brand of soda. A woman wishes she had Xanax.

Other: The principal character of this film turns to various Eastern religious sources for help and guidance. Scenes include palm reading and healings by a “medicine woman.”
