Why Is The World’s Fastest Indian Rated PG-13?

Burt’s eccentricities include urinating on his lemon tree and making brief references to male body parts. Although unmarried, he has two sexual encounters, one with an elderly female friend and another with a stranger he meets while driving through the western U.S. (We only see them waking up the next morning with no nudity.) After turning down advances from prostitutes who are patrolling the streets, Burt meets and befriends Tina, a transvestite. Later, Tina gives Burt a kiss on the cheek when the motorcycle racer leaves Los Angeles. Burt tells Tom about the accidental death of his twin brother. Several secondary characters are shown smoking and drinking. However, Burt voices his strong disapproval of their habits. He uses a Native American remedy made from ground up animal parts for a health problem. During a race, Burt sustains a severe burn to his leg and crashes while driving at high speeds. Characters use mild and moderate profanities, including some sexual terms.
