Why Is The Longshots Rated PG?


At school, Jasmine is the target of bullying from a group of students who resort to name-calling and humiliating pranks. On the field, she is the recipient of some hard tackles. Frequent depictions of alcohol use are seen as a character deals with life’s problems. Cussing, profanities and brief rude anatomical humor are used in a script that deals with themes of abandonment, homelessness and unemployment. A postcard of a girl in a bikini is seen.
