Why Is R.I.P.D. Rated PG-13?

Violence: Characters are shot, vaporized, punched, stabbed and crushed by cars. One man is shot in the face and killed. Others are injured or killed in explosions. Officers tussle with a man who is causing a disturbance at a funeral. Characters jump out of the window of a large building. One character is thrown in front of a bus and another is hit by a car. Extensive property damage occurs. Characters morph into grotesque monsters. A person is dragged along behind one of the undead. A character is repeatedly crushed with a rock and then hit in the head with cement blocks.

Sexual Content: Frequent and crude sexual dialogue and innuendo are used. Rude comments are made to a man in a towel who then drops his towel and exposes himself (no frontal nudity is shown). A married woman wearing a t-shirt and panties cuddles and kisses her husband in bed. A man is kicked in the groin. A female character wears a cleavage revealing dress. A man makes sexually suggestive comments to a woman. Characters discuss porn, lap dances and other crude sexual activities.

Language: The script contains a partial use of a crude sexual expletive, a rude hand gesture, frequent profanities, scatological slang, vulgarities, crude name-calling and cursing. Sexually suggestive dialogue and crass terms for anatomy are also heard.

Alcohol / Drug Use: Characters morph into monsters after sniffing a common household spice.
