Why Is Extraordinary Measures Rated PG?

The script includes extensive discussions of pharmaceutical drugs and methods for their development. Some medical procedures are shown in both a home and hospital setting. Several characters argue with each other. A security officer pulls a gun on an intruder. A married couple is heard kissing passionately. A man drinks beer on several occasions. Beer is served at a bar and wine is served with a dinner. Mild and moderate profanities are repeatedly used along with terms of Deity.
