Why Is The Time Traveler’s Wife Rated PG-13?


This romance with a sci-fi twist contains many views of rear male nudity (in a non-sexual context) and one scene of rear female nudity. A couple of scenes depict pre-sexual activity, including one where a man touches a woman’s breasts (with clothes on). A man is frequently seen stealing clothing and breaking into cars and buildings. A car accident is shown from the interior view of a car, which is spinning out of control—a child passenger has blood on his hands. As well, an exterior view shows the car hit by a truck and bursting into flames. A man is seen with bloody injuries on a couple of occasions, once from an accidental gunshot. A pregnant woman discovers blood on her pants and in her bed. The script includes discussions surrounding conception, miscarriage and vasectomy. A non-explicit birthing scene is included. A father teaches his child how to pick locks. Language includes a couple of uses of scatological slang, several terms of deity, a few mild profanities and one milder substitution for a sexual expletive. A man discusses using prescription tranquilizers. A man cheats in a lottery.
