Why Is Step Up 2 The Streets Rated PG-13?

The second film in what appears to be a franchise from Disney’s Touchstone Pictures division, this movie is comparatively mild to other film’s in the US PG-13 rating category, yet still contains issues that may concern parents—the biggest being mischievous illegal behavior including a group of youth disturbing passengers and aggressively dancing on a subway train while wearing masks. One member “tags” (sprays graffiti) on public property. They also trash another dance “crew’s” house, which results in a more violent retaliation with in a man being beaten and major damage done to a school dance studio. Language includes infrequent mild profanities and about a half-dozen rude anatomical terms. Sexual content is limited to some suggestive dance moves, low-cut tops, a girl briefly seen in a bra while changing and a couple of quick kisses. Characters are portrayed as high school students yet regularly visit a dance club where alcohol is dispensed (although no main characters are seen drinking).
