Why Is Get Smart Rated PG-13?

Frequent, but usually bloodless, depictions of violence include shootings, gunfire exchanges, explosions, hand-to-hand fighting and the threat of terrorist acts. A character is hit over the head with a fire extinguisher and another has a paper stapled to his head. Several men are shot (impact of bullet is shown), and one is hit by a speeding bus. An agent is knocked down by a woman, impaled with mini harpoons and hit with paintballs. He also falls from a plane without a parachute and later is pinned by a heavy metal door. Sexual jokes include comments about a woman’s uterus and male body parts, suggestive flirting, a scene of men kissing, some mild homosexual innuendo, name-calling and male buttock nudity. A woman is briefly seen in her underwear. Men are repeatedly kicked in the groin. One man relieves himself in the bathroom and later makes comments about excrement. Language contains terms of Deity, infrequent mild and moderate profanities and the use of a sexual hand gesture. Some mild body-size jokes and brief portrayals of smoking and alcohol use are also included.
