Why Is Waiting Rated R?

It may be R-rated, but this film is still targeted to teen audiences (a continuing joke involves the 40-something manager and a 20-something employee both counting down the days until a female employee turns 18 so they can have sex with her). Profanities are continuous, with well over 100 uses of the sexual expletive. Illegal drugs and alcohol are used without concern, casual sex with multiple partners is boasted about, and highly inappropriate workplace behavior is depicted. Two quick shots of male and female genitals are also included.
