Why is The Holiday rated PG-13?
Official MPAA Rating: The Holiday is rated PG-13 for for sexual content and some strong language.
There is no shortage of comedy and warm moments in this romance. Unfortunately, one storyline revolves around a casual sexual relationship. Although no sexual activity is seen (with the exception of a couple viewed in bed from the waist up, with the woman shown wearing a bra), it is often discussed. Profanities, crude sexual terms, a sexual expletive and a few terms of deity also punctuate the script. Social drinking is frequent, including characters that drink to relieve grief. Violence is limited to a jilted woman punching a man two times.
