Why Is Monster House Rated PG?


Monster House plays out like an attraction at an amusement park, with a reason to jump around every turn. Violence includes verbal and physical threats, the monstrous personification of a house, encounters with the dead and dying, bullying, scary moments, situations of peril, depictions of violent video games and guns, as well as explosions. Parents should also note thematic elements like a lack of respect for authority figures and laws, no dependable or trustworthy adult characters, and euthanasia inferences. Other concerns are potty humor, name-calling and terms of deity used as expletives, cracks about puberty, some mild sexual innuendo, as well as a beer drinking young adult and a cough syrup swigging authority figure.
