Why is Cheaper by the Dozen 2 rated PG? Cheaper by the Dozen 2 is rated PG by the MPAA for some crude humor and mild language.

Mild sexual innuendo and Carmen Elektra’s low-slung outfits will be the greatest concerns for parents considering this film. Comical pratfalls and an overzealous competitive attitude between two men create moments of conflict and a couple of mild profanities are included. Finally, two young boys accidentally set off a backpack full of fireworks during a formal dinner, sending a wheelchair bound man into the lake. This same man comically falls into the lake again during a later scene.
