Why Is Invictus Rated PG-13?


This film contains depictions of racially motivated conflicts and riots (with portrayals of injured characters and a corpse) along with derogatory comments about other racial groups. Intense scenes of rough sports play are shown infrequently and include some blood. Characters drink in a bar, at home and at social events on numerous occasions. One character turns down the sexual advances of his fiancée. Another man comments briefly on the advantages of polygamy. A strong sexual expletive is used along with infrequent profanities and scatological slang.
