Why is The Lake House rated PG?
Official MPAA Rating: The Lake House is rated PG for for some language and a disturbing image
Adults and teens looking for a little cinematic romance without sexual content will likely be pleased with this PG-rated love story. An unmarried couple that appears to be living together, a short scene with a woman in a cleavage-revealing top, and a few kisses are the only elements contributing to sexual content. Language is also tame, with a few mild profanities, a scatological expletive and terms of deity. A pedestrian is killed after being struck by a bus (we see the body after the incident) and a couple of traumatic moments in a hospital are included. Perhaps the most concerning content issue are the many scenes of social drinking in bars and homes, however no one appears intoxicated.
