Why is Aquamarine rated PG? Aquamarine is rated PG by the MPAA mild language and sensuality

Aimed at young teen girls, Aquamarine focuses on the value of friendship. While bikinis are common on the beach, the main characters are prone to more modest attire. When Aquamarine comes ashore, she is naked but carefully arranged hair keeps her covered although some back nudity is seen. The script includes repeated terms of Deity and one moderate profanity. One girl briefly discusses her lack of cleavage and there is some fawning over boys. A character is trapped in a water tower. Another character pushes a girl off the pier and into the ocean.
