Why is Stomp the Yard rated PG-13?
Official MPAA Rating: Stomp the Yard is rated PG-13 for for a scene of violence, some sexual material and language.
This movie’s primary character certainly moves in a positive direction as he leaves his street life in Los Angeles and becomes a responsible college student desiring to earn a degree. To illustrate the contrast between his two lives, we see a street fight that results in his brother being shot to death (some blood is seen). Pushing and shoving confrontations occur in other scenes and contention grows within a romantic triangle. Sexual content includes suggestive dancing by males and females and a couple of remarks involving condoms including one man who proudly displays his supply. Frequent moderate profanities are included along with a possible obscene finger gesture and some social drinking in a bar atmosphere.
