Why is The Last Mimzy rated PG?
Official MPAA Rating: The Last Mimzy is rated PG for for some thematic elements, mild peril and language
This adventure movie, which is likely most appropriate for the 10 and over crowd, offers an interesting story concept capable of keeping adults interested too. The greatest concern for young viewers will involve a surprise raid by over-zealous federal officials. Under the Patriot Act, they apprehend the entire family, causing the children great distress. Another less intense moment of peril includes a short scene where glimpses of what looks like stereotypical aliens (green suits with big eyes) are seen. Three mild profanities and three uses of a term of deity are heard. Sexual content is limited to a man and woman kissing a couple of times. The film also portrays Tibetan religion and “new age” practices like palm reading and levitating.
