Why Is Old Dogs Rated PG?

Kids take a lot of abuse in this film, like in a scene where a child is hit in the head by a soccer ball. A man, upset by his divorce, gets drunk, tattooed and married to a stranger. Several scenes depict drunken behavior and the unintentional misuse of prescription pills. A dog pees in an office setting. A character is accused of wetting himself. A man is sprayed in the groin in a tanning salon. Other characters are hit in the groin with golf balls. A woman has her hands smashed and broken in a car door. A woman is sent to jail for civil disobedience. A man eats dog food. Jokes include scatological humor, homosexual comments and sports violence that result in a bloody lip. A character is electrocuted in water. Characters throw rocks at animals after intruding on their turf and animals attack men. Brief terms of Deity and name-calling are used.
