Why is 2010: The Year We Make Contact (1984) rated PG? 2010: The Year We Make Contact (1984) is rated PG by the MPAA

Those who couldn’t stand the light-on-plot heavy-on-mood 2001 may find 2010 to be much more satisfying. The story is easy to follow, and you don’t necessarily need to see the first film to figure out what’s going on—although it does add to the nostalgic thrill. However this edition does include some mild and a couple of moderate profanities, as well as terms of Deity used as expletives—of which 2001 was devoid.

With just enough suspense to keep things interesting and with mom or dad’s guidance (especially with the quasi-religious ending), 2010 may be a good first dip into the sci-fi movie world for young teen viewers yearning for a little space in their lives.
