Why Is Fired Up! Rated PG-13?

There is no question about the innuendo behind this competition’s call letters. Continual, crude terms for male and female anatomy and sexual activity are used along with scatological slang, ethno-cultural slurs, frequent vulgarities, profanities and derogatory sexual orientation comments. Teen couples (both heterosexual and homosexual) engage in kissing and fondling. A teen boy and adult woman grope and kiss while beginning to undress. Numerous, negative jokes are aimed at homosexual characters. The discussion of drug use by a college-aged student and some other drug references are included in the script. Unsupervised teens drink at a party and throw raw meat at one another. One boy covers another character’s face with an athletic cup. A teen puts a sex toy in his mouth. Teens go swimming in underwear, one boy skinny dips. Naked boys are forced to run back to their dorm when their clothes go missing. They also perform a cheer for the camp director while naked. Characters are threatened, punched and kicked. Other characters fall or are injured during sporting events.
