Why is Bedtime Stories rated PG? Bedtime Stories is rated PG by the MPAA for some mild rude humor and mild language.

Infrequent terms of Christian Deity and rude name-calling are paired with some crude humor involving flatulence jokes, comments about underwear and mild sexual innuendo. Cartoon-style violence consists of characters being attacked by an animal, kicked, knocked down, hit with food, shot, stung by a bee and participating in hand-to-hand fighting or gladiator-style events. Space guns shoot goo in the shape of a hand that pokes or slaps the opponent in the face. On a more serious note, a man sprays himself and another person in the face with a toxic aerosol. Children enter a building that is about to be demolished. A waiter is pushed into a pool and a guest is drenched with fire extinguisher chemicals. Two people recklessly drive a motorcycle down the street and through a golf course. Individuals wear bikinis, cleavage-baring dresses or coconut bras. Alcohol is consumed with dinner, at parties and other social events. An adult couple kisses on at least two occasions. A man eats toothpaste.
