Why is Daddy’s Home rated PG-13? Daddy’s Home is rated PG-13 by the MPAA for thematic elements, crude and suggestive content, and for language.

As two male characters compete for the attention of a female, they engage in many stunts and dangerous behaviors. Theses incidents are depicted humorously and include riding a motorcycle through a house, skateboarding and zip lining—property damage and minor injury result. A man accidentally touches power lines and is electrocuted – he is resuscitated using CPR because his heart has stopped (also played for laughs). A young boy is bullied so adults teach him to fight. Characters, both young and old, get into a fight and punch one another – including a boy who hits and kicks a girl. A child draws violent pictures of her stepfather. Accidental exposure to x-rays leaves a man infertile. Characters argue and make verbal threats. A drunken character has a tantrum. Characters are accidentally hit and injured by a basketball. A couple of men tell non-detailed war stories. Adults try to manipulate the affection of children through promises and bribes.

Sexual Content:
The sexual behavior of animals (a dog and rhinos in a documentary) is shown. Defecating and urinating is joked about and a dog is shown peeing. A man shares several stories about inappropriate sexual relationships in his former marriages. A shirtless man is seen a couple of times, and another is caught with his pants down (no nudity show) in a medical office. Frequent sexual innuendo and references are heard throughout the script. Many crass jokes and rude slang terms are used during a visit to a fertility doctor while he examines a man’s private parts. Collection of sperm samples is alluded to. Crude terms for sex are also used. Some scantily clothed cheerleaders are seen. A man strips off his shirt while dancing and throws it into the crowd. A tampon is shown and referred to humorously. Abstract nude paintings are shown in the background of some scenes. Characters embrace and kiss.

Mild and moderate profanities, scatological slang and terms of deity are used frequently. Crude sexual slang and anatomical words are heard. Characters call each other names.

Alcohol / Drug Use:
Characters drink beer in social settings and at a bar. An angry man gets drunk and becomes disorderly.
