Why Is The Guilt Trip Rated PG-13?

Violence: A scuffle breaks out when a man insists on buying a drink for an already intoxicated woman—the punched man is shown with a bruised face afterward. A mother and son have some heated discussions. A car appears to hit a pedestrian during closing credits.

Sexual Content: A couple of snippets are heard from a talking book discussing sexual behavior. A woman is convinced hitchhikers rape people. A mother discusses pregnancy and a problem with her newborn son’s penis. A brief scene takes place in a strip bar where we see dancers in the background wearing bikini tops and bottoms. The term “penetrative sex” is heard in outtakes during closing credits.

Language: A single sexual expletive, a half dozen scatological terms and a few terms of deity (including two Christian terms) are heard.

Drugs/Alcohol: A man drinks to alleviate stress. A woman drinks to the point of drunkedness. While gambling on a slot machine in Vegas, a woman frequently asks for more free drinks.
