Why Is Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist Rated PG-13?

This all-night adventure of a group of high school seniors deals with issues of teen drinking and sexuality without any regards for consequences. Many scenes depict high school senior-aged characters drinking, as well as attending bars and clubs. One character disguises alcohol in a juice bottle. A female character drinks to the point of near unconsciousness, revives from this state somewhat, and then begins drinking again. While we don’t specifically see characters drinking and driving, it is implied that they may be under the influence of alcohol. Also, they are often depicted driving recklessly and illegally. Frequent sexual innuendo is heard, with sexual anatomical terms used. A teenaged female discusses concerns about never having an orgasm in a past relationship and worries her inability may destroy another teen partner’s self esteem. A teenaged girl dances seductively for a male teen in the hopes of seducing him (no nudity is seen). Other female characters are seen in revealing dresses and one wears lingerie. A teen couple lies on a sofa and as the camera pans away we hear sexual sounds. A teen female character punches a teen male in the larynx, causing him to have problems breathing. A teen boy head butts a man, giving him a bleeding nose. Language includes one sexual expletive, frequent scatological terms, crude anatomical terms, crude sexual remarks and terms of Deity used as profanities. An inebriated teen girl throws up in a public toilet, and then reaches into the bowl to retrieve her gum, which she puts back into her mouth. This gum is later shared with others.
