Why Is The Vow Rated PG-13?

Violence: A car accident is portrayed in slow motion—a woman, who is not wearing a seatbelt, is ejected through the windshield. A man punches another man leaving him with a bloody nose. Characters exchange heated dialogue.

Sexual Content: A married couple begins sexual relations (we see them start to undress one another). The scene fades to them in bed together the next morning (a lot of skin and carefully positioned sheets are seen). A married couple is seen together getting dressed—she is in underwear while he is shown naked from the rear. A woman claims it’s easier to “get preggers” in a car. Man and woman kiss. A couple strips down to their underwear and goes swimming. Mild sexual innuendo and discussion are heard. A slang word for a body function is used.

Language: Infrequent scatological curses, terms of deity, and mild profanities, as well as a single use of a crude anatomical term.

Drugs/Alcohol: Characters drink socially in a many scenes. A distressed man drinks hard liquor.
