Why is Come Away Home rated PG? Come Away Home is rated PG by the MPAA for mild thematic elements and brief language

While most of the film focuses on building family relationships and respect for the elderly, disobedience, lying, keeping secrets and a disregard for some traffic laws are also depicted in the movie. Some young viewers may be a little frightened by the telling of a ghost story, the portrayal of a character lost in the dark and a near-drowning incident. A teen character is shown smoking. One mild profanity and a brief sexual innuendo are included.
