Why is Open Season rated PG?
Official MPAA Rating: Open Season is rated PG for for some rude humor, mild action and brief language.
In the war between predator and prey, animals are constantly threatened with guns. In defense and retaliation, the forest creatures attack the hunters with skunk spray, throw and catapult objects at them, as well as detonate an explosion. Massive property damage results, although there is no loss of life. While this violence is portrayed in a comical manner, there are moments of peril for some of the characters that may frighten young viewers. The script includes mild sexual and rude bathroom humor. Eating chocolate and drinking coffee are depicted as having an addictive effect on some animals. During a break and enter, a couple of animals behave recklessly and irresponsibly.
