Why is Swing Vote rated PG-13?
Official MPAA Rating: Swing Vote is rated PG-13 for for language.
Bud’s uncensored use of foul language results in the frequent use of vulgarities, terms of Deity and one use of a sexual expletive. His chronic alcohol consumption leaves him unable to adequately care for his daughter who becomes the parent in their relationship. It also contributes to his job loss, and poses problems when he attempts to drive while drunk. As well, he imbibes to avoid the trials of life. A woman slaps a man following a disagreement and a couple argues in front of a child. Another female suffers from addictions, and her prescription bottles are shown. There are brief discussions about strippers, homosexual marriage, abortion (with depictions of children disappearing into a puff of smoke), and child social services. While fishing, a man threads a worm onto a hook.
