Why Is Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire Rated PG-13?
This installment of Harry Potter is the darkest to grace the screen to date. Depictions of violence abound including: the death of characters, villainous Death Eaters causing destruction with fire, images of snakes and skulls, moments of peril, death threats, mentions of torture, a character having his hand cut off, and a knife wound that draws blood. Sexual content centers on noticing the opposite gender, inappropriate hand placement during a dance, as well as some wistful comments by a female ghost about seeing a bathing boy without obscuring bubbles. Also, there are several uses of mild profanities and a main character that constantly drinks from a flask.
