Why Is Vicky Cristina Barcelona Rated PG-13?

Depictions of sexual activity are carefully shot to avoid blatant nudity. However, a picture of a naked woman on a magazine cover and partially revealed breasts are shown. Discussions of sexual activity, plural relationships and passionate male/female and female/female kissing are seen. Couples are seen engaging in sex in the bedroom and kitchen. Other implied sexual activities take place in a public park and other areas. Suicide and violent interactions between a married couple are discussed. A gun-wielding woman fires several bullets, one of which hits another character in the hand. Numerous scenes of alcohol use and cigarette smoking are portrayed. Sexual innuendo, profanities and vulgarities are used frequently in the script.
