Why is The A-Team rated PG-13? The A-Team is rated PG-13 by the MPAA for intense sequences of action and violence throughout, language and smoking.

Violence: Various guns and assault weapons are used throughout. Many people are shot, some fatally. High amounts of property damage occur. Fistfights between men are frequently depicted. A man forcibly kisses a woman—in return she slaps him and then he kisses her again (but this time she appears to enjoy it). A vehicle is smashed into a room full of people. A bloody injury is shown in explicit detail. Various vehicles and aircraft explode. While watching a bomb hit a building with people inside on a video screen, a person remarks that it "looks like Call of Duty" (referring to the popular video game).

Sex: A couple of sexual remarks are heard (some are derogatory toward women). A man finds a woman’s underwear on his bed, implying a sexual relationship. A man is accused of sleeping with another man’s wife—the woman is happy with the situation. A man and woman share a passionate kiss.

Language: Approximately nine scatological expletives, an interrupted sexual expletive, terms of deity and mild profanities are heard. A sexual finger gesture is seen.

Drugs/Alcohol: A principal protagonist frequently smokes cigars. A man claims he uses antifreeze to marinate meat for a barbeque. A character afraid of flying is frequently given sedatives and injections without his consent. A man takes a drug to induce a death-like seizure so he can escape from prison.
