Why is All the King’s Men rated PG-13? All the King’s Men is rated PG-13 by the MPAA intense sequence of violence, sexual content and partial nudity.

Government and big business corruption is at the heart of this film’s political intrigue. Unfortunately no one seems to be immune from its effect. Intimidation, bribery and backroom bartering are all used to push through programs. As a result of the fraud, two men commit suicide (one is depicted with a blood-splattered wall and blanket) and two men are killed in a close range shooting with excessive amounts of blood shown. There is discussion of a married man’s numerous liaisons with other women. Cigarettes and alcohol are used throughout the film along with moderate profanities and a racial slur.
