Why is Baby Mama rated PG-13? Baby Mama is rated PG-13 by the MPAA crude and sexual humor, language and a drug reference

Anyone with children knows that pregnancy, as difficult as it can be, is often the easiest part of parenting. Yet the focus in this film is all about the act of getting pregnant. Sexual relations, on first dates and in casual relationships, are portrayed and discussed without a thought for the children or responsibility for them that may result. Rebound sex is also portrayed as a way to get even with an ex-girlfriend. Crude terms for anatomy and other sexual jokes are included in the dialogue along with bathroom humor, numerous profanities and one modified use of a strong sexual expletive. Women, wearing provocative clothing, get drunk at a nightclub—one of these women is pregnant. The discussion of cigarette use and a drug reference are included as well.
