Why is Just Friends rated PG-13?

Official MPAA Rating: Just Friends is rated PG-13 for for sexual content and dialogue.

Please read our content details for this movie to help determine if it is suitable for members of your family. We also encourage you to check our full review and our movie information page.

Parents concerned about sexual content will likely want to pass this one by. While no overt nudity is ever seen (other than a poster of a topless girl with whipped cream and cherries on her breasts), sexual subjects permeate the dialogue and two men compete to see who can bed a girl first. Many slang terms for sex are heard—along with other profanities—and people are often seen being physically hurt by other people or objects. Alcohol consumption is regularly depicted and in one scene, a man reports giving a woman some type of drug.
