Why Is What Happens in Vegas Rated PG-13?
While this movie illustrates the rewards of working to make a hastily entered into marriage work, there are many pitfalls families may not appreciate. Frequent sexual innuendo and some brief sexual activity along with scatological humor involving urination (seen on screen) permeate the script. Crude remarks regarding anatomy, a woman seen in her underwear and a topless man are also included. When a woman is unable to pay cab fare, the driver asks to see her breasts instead, and she agrees (no nudity is seen). A manager calls female subordinates “skirts,” and then tells them his name choice wasn’t sexual harassment. Language includes a sexual finger gesture, three bleeped sexual expletives in a song, some moderate and many mild profanities, and frequent uses of terms of deity. Frequent kicks and hits to male crotches, a punch to the face, spraying of perfume into a perceived attacker’s eyes, a woman dropped from a man’s arms onto a floor, and a woman pelting a man with fruit rounds out of most of the violent content. Many characters are frequently seen dinking alcohol throughout and some to the point of being highly intoxicated. A character wins a large sum of money after playing a single quarter in a slot machine.
